Not yet. I'm currently working on support for the new machines, that
includes the new iMac G5 with iSight, and the dual core G5s. They have a
new chipset that needs a bit of work. Hopefully, I'll have a patch soon,
probably tomorrow, with some basic support but no thermal control yet.
I'll need testers with the new iMac as I don't have access to one
though, I'll let you know. The thermal control will come soon after
