Conky 1.7.1 has several new features, some of which will be highlighted here in brief:

Lua-top-example

Using Lua to enhance top output

  • Lua scripting support
  • Image drawing via Imlib2
  • Built in support for APC UPS daemon monitoring
  • Several new variables such as:
    • $combine: places variables next to each other, in a column-like manner
      ${combine ${head /proc/cpuinfo 2} - ${head /proc/meminfo 1}}
    • $eval: evaluates the output of any variables as per Conky's TEXT interpretation
      ${eval ${exec echo '${color #ff0000}lol!${color}'}}lol!

	all RSS-items !
