FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ITHACA, New York — March 12, 2007 — Nakahara Informatics, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of version 2.6 of iGet™, the Mac file transfer tool. The new version introduces a new and more modern look and feel, along with bug fixes and user-requested enhancements. The free update is the first iGet release since the company recently acquired the product, and is recommended for all users.
"Although the development of iGet 3.0 is well underway, we continue to maintain and improve the 2.x line," said CEO Christopher Martin. "This update addresses some minor issues that our users have reported, and the visual update better reflects the Nakahara Informatics aesthetic."
He added that the company plans to announce a beta test program for iGet 3 within the next few weeks. The program will allow the company to solicit feedback and to better acquaint itself with iGet's existing user base. An announcement will be made soon, but any users interested in participating should feel free to contact the company at any time, Martin said.
iGet 2.6 is available immediately, from the company's web site:
Complete release notes are also available. iGet will run in full-featured demo mode for users wishing to try it out.
iGet is an inventive file transfer tool designed specifically for the Mac. It allows users to log into their accounts on remote Macs and browse, search, and download the files they need. As easy to use as the best FTP clients, iGet is much more Mac-oriented: it can stop and resume file and folder transfers, displays the real Mac icons and Finder labels for remote files, understands Mac aliases and can perform Mac-specific tasks like putting files into the Trash remotely.
With Spotlight searches that execute on the remote Mac, searching for files is extremely fast. iGet features always-on strong encryption, and does not require users to worry about details like HFS metadata, resource forks, or unusual characters in file names. With iGet, it just works. In addition, iGet was designed to work well over virtually any kind of network connection, not just a fast LAN, so it's a great tool for accessing remote Macs over the Internet. An innovative "zero-setup" design allows the user to connect without having to install any special software (not even iGet) on the remote Mac.
All this power is wrapped up in a smooth interface that is simple to use and supports major Mac technologies like Automator, AppleScript, Bonjour, Spotlight, and the Keychain.
iGet began shipping as a Universal Binary even before Intel-based Macs became available, so it has offered native performance on both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs from day one.
iGet requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later. It can connect to Macs running Mac OS X 10.3 or later.
iGet 2.6 is available immediately from the company's web site, at www.nakahara-informatics.com. It is priced at $49.95, with significant discounts available for multi-seat licenses. The update is free to all users who have purchased a license for any version of iGet.
Educational discounts and site license pricing are also available.
