Glucose's $10 firewall utility, Impasse 1.2.3, adds new tool tips for all rules for allowing/denying traffic to particular Internet services as well as the ability to enter sleep mode when the host machine is idle. The company also announced Impasse 1.5 which "will have several new features that will set it apart as the easiest and most configurable firewall available on Mac OS X. We intend to build the most complete library of rules available, so that configuring your firewall for any Internet application or service is as easy and clicking on a checkbox." Upgrades will be free to all registered users.
