ADPassMon user Cesar Gonzalez sent me a nice note to let me know that Apple engineers suggested using ADPassMon to work around a problem he encountered after deploying FileVault 2. Due to the EFI boot authentication passthrough, his users are no longer notified of the pending password expirations at the login screen. Since ADPassMon runs after the login process, it works whether FileVault 2 is enabled or not.
Adding to ADPassMon’s feature list without any additional work seems like a big win to me. :) Thanks again, Cesar!

A commenter requested a 32-bit version of ADPassMon so his older Intel Macs can run it. One quick setting change in Xcode and a short recompile later and it’s ready. Version 1.1 support both 32 and 64-bit Intel architectures.

I just released my very first “real application” — written in that wonderful mashup language that is AppleScript ObjectiveC. ADPassMon is a menu bar app for Mac OS X 10.6 and higher — Lion, too — that monitors your Active Directory password’s age. It does a few more things that you may find useful. Please visit the product page for complete details and a download link.
