We're happy to announce the release of version 1.0 of Candelair and HIDRemote today:

Candelair is an alternative driver for the built-in IR receiver as found in many Mac®s today. It provides a clean, global fix for AppleĀ® Remote issues many users are experiencing with third party applications under Snow Leopard® releases 10.6 and 10.6.1. It's based on Remote Buddy's (http://www.iospirit.com/products/remotebuddy/) driver and comes packaged in a preference pane that presents all remote control options at a glance. Candelair is a free download, available at http://www.iospirit.com/labs/candelair/ .

HIDRemote is an Objective-C® class for Cocoa® developers. It provides applications with access to the Apple® Remote under OS X 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6. The primary goals of HIDRemote are to maximize compatibility, interoperability, future-proofness and user-friendlyness for developers and users. For more information on the HIDRemote class, please see http://www.iospirit.com/developers/hidremote/ .
