SoftRAID 5.1 Update (OS X El Capitan compatible)
(FYI: The D/L page now also has a "SoftRAID lite" version.)
The SoftRAID download page has version 5.1 with this summary list of features.
(list below later removed after the "Lite" version was added to D/L page.)

  • Full compatibility with Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan
  • RAID 4, RAID 5 and RAID 1+0 volumes
    ('Lite' version supports RAID 0, RAID 1 only)
  • High resolution graphics for Macs with Retina Displays
  • SoftRAID Monitor now displays disk and volume status in menu bar
  • Improved performance and reliability

System Requirements:
SoftRAID requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later. Support for TRIM commands on SSDs requires 10.7.5 or later. SoftRAID requires a Mac which contains a Core 2 Duo or later processor. It will not work on early Intel Macs with Core Duo processors.

It's too long to list here but I've posted a page with the complete SoftRAID 5.1 new features, fixes, known bugs from the release notes PDF in the full version download.
