Changes in version 1.1 include:
Digital Peak Meter Pro costs 10 Euro (8 Euro through January 31st). (8 Euro instead of 10 Euro). A demo version is now available. Blue Cat also offers a free version, Digital Peak Meter, that doesn't include the controls offset, scaling, and reverse controls over the generated envelope.
