Show HN: Htop 2.0 released, now cross-platform

This is htop, an interactive process viewer for Unix systems.
It is a text-mode application (for console or X terminals)
and requires ncurses.

Since version 2.0, htop is now cross-platform!
Check out the video and slides of my presentation at FOSDEM 2016
about how this came to be. This release includes code supporting Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD and Mac OS X.

There are also, of course, some new features:

  • If you’re using NCurses 6, htop will also support your mouse wheel for scrolling.
  • Moving meters and columns around in the setup screen is a lot more comfortable now.
  • You can now press “e” to see the set of environment variables for a process.
  • The “graph” mode for meters was revamped, inspired by James Hall’s vtop.

…And of course, lots of other tweaks and fixes!
