FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
RENO, Nevada - September 7, 2004 - Five Speed Software, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of iGet 1.1, an update to the company's innovative file transfer software for the Mac. The update is free for all users.
"iGet 1.1 delivers some of the features that users have requested the most," said engineering manager Ethan Tuttle. "We've gotten some terrific feedback from our customers, and that is reflected in this first maintenance update."
iGet 1.1 features an enhanced connection dialog, makes it more convenient to use iGet on public Macs, and allows path-based navigation, among other improvements. The update also addresses several minor issues discovered after the iGet 1.0 release.
A complete list of new features and fixes in the new version is available on the company's web site, at: http://www.fivespeed.com/iget/history
Released in 2004, iGet is a modern replacement for older file transfer tools like FTP, SFTP, and client-server solutions. It provides a network-oriented file transfer tool that fully supports Mac-specific file attributes--including resource forks, HFS metadata, packages, aliases, and Unicode file names--which standard protocols like FTP cannot handle.
Using a familiar Mac interface, iGet allows users to quickly transfer files from one Mac to another. With the "zero-setup" feature, the user can connect to any Mac OS X 10.3 machine without having to install special software (not even iGet) on the remote Mac.
Other features include resumable file transfers, strong encryption, Keychain and Rendezvous support, complete drag and drop support, and more.
iGet 1.1 is available today, from the Five Speed Software web site. The single-copy price is US $24.95.
Educational discounts and site license pricing are also available.
