Developer Scott Lahteine has announced that Beta 5 of TabletMagic 1.0, a free open source Mac OS X driver for unsupported Wacom serial tablets, is now available.

The software includes a control application, and Lahteine notes that it currently supports the ArtZ-II and PenPartner tablets as well as others whose model numbers start with CT, KT, SD or UD. He also says that it works with most USB-to-Serial adapters, such as those made by Keyspan, but it doesn't yet work with ADB tablets nor the iMate. TabletMagic 1.0 requires Mac OS X v10.2 or higher.
