This is the new stable version of LCDproc.
LCDproc controls various LCD and VFD devices in a standardized way on multiple platforms (Linux, *BSD, Darwin, Solaris). Its client/server model allows multiple systems/clients to use the same display.
In addition to the server LCDd, LCDproc ships with a client to display various system statistics, a program starter client, a client to show a virtual console on the LCD as well as a few more example clients.
More information anf further clients for lcdproc can be found in its home page http://www.lcdproc.org
