Stress-Terminal UI update

I've backported a little terminal program called s-tui that shows graphs of CPU use, frequency, and power consumption in watts--maybe temperature, too, though that seems to not work on my laptop, though I have other monitors that can see the temps. You can also stress load your system to see what'll happen under maximum load, and you can also use indicator-cpufreq on the taskbar to control some CPU speeds (depending on the processor, kernel, and your cpufreq/p_state boot flags).

Though you run it in the terminal, you can click the radio "buttons" with the mouse.
I have been giving this a good work out and it's a little gem. Not only does it monitor the CPU, it also allows the CPU to be stress tested, so it allows folks who have O/C'd their system to see if things are stable.

An updated version is at https://github.com/amanusk/s-tui. Would it be possible for this to be placed in the MX repo?

As far as I know, the latest version is in our main repo: https://repology.org/project/s-tui/versions

I have looked at the about section of the program and it is dated April 2017. I can't find the number of the latest update on github, but its last update was a few days ago, and it has had many updates since 2017.

Those are development commits, and may not result in a stable program. We do have the latest release, as you can see in the repology results. It was released Dec. 1st, 2018, so is not that old--the developer must have forgotten to update the "about" dialog.

Is there anything in the commits that make a git version that much better?

Comparing what I see in their screenshots https://github.com/amanusk/s-tui#screenshot to what the 2017 version I have installed I can see that monitoring is more comprehensive - temp, freq, util are shown per core. The earlier version doesn't do per core monitoring. The update also has an option of an enhanced stress test called "Firestarter", but this option can be left uninstalled (probably a wise idea).
