Project update 19 of 24
We’re happy to announce the release of BusKill v0.6.0!
Most importantly, this release allows you to arm the BusKill app such that it shuts down your computer when the BusKill cable’s connection to the computer is severed.

This update includes many bug fixes and new features, including:
--triggerargument and support for a new

--run-triggerargument to execute the trigger immediately

This release now allows you to choose between either [a] locking your screen or [b] shutting down your computer when you arm the BusKill app from the command-line.
By default, the BusKill app will trigger the lockscreen. To choose the
soft-shutdown trigger, use the
--trigger soft-shutdown argument. For more information, see our Software CLI User Guide.
We hope to allow the user to select their desired trigger within the GUI in our next release.
We do our best to test the BusKill app on Linux, Windows, and MacOS. But unfortunately it’s possible that our app doesn’t fully function on all versions, distributions, and flavours of these three platforms.
We could really use your help testing the BusKill app, especially if you have access to a system that’s not (yet) listed in our Supported Platforms.
And in this release, we specifically would like you to help us test the new soft shutdown feature. Please let us know if it does or does not work for you.
Please contact us if you’d like to help test the BusKill app :)
