On Tuesday, software developer eidac released version 2.4 of its smcFanControl utility, a free program that allows users to adjust the minimum fan speed of their Intel-based Macs, thereby allowing the unit to potentially run cooler.

The new version, a 768 kilobyte download, offers the following fixes and changes:

– Support for OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion / Gatekeeper.

– Support for Retina Macbook Pro.

– smcFanControl is now a 64 Bit application.

– AutoStart works now without AppleScript.

– Support for Mac OS X 10.4 is deprecated.

– The source code for smcFanControl is now available at Github.

smcFanControl 2.4 is available for free and requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.5 or later to install and run.

If you’ve tried the new version and have any feedback to offer, please let us know in the comments.
