Martian Tecnology today released , a network file and folder synchronization utility for Mac OS X. SlingShot helps users keep files in sync between two or more Macs, incorporating Apple's Bonjour technology to find and connect to other computers on a network. SlingShot supports both simple one-way "mirroring" of files from one computer to another, as well as two-way synchronization arrangements to update files on all participating computers. SlingShot allows one computer to "Publish" a folder onto the network, to which other computers can then "Subscribe." Several computers can contribute changes to the folder, automatically updating the files on all participating machines. SlingShot requires Mac OS X Tiger and is available as a Universal binary, supporting both PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs. SlingShot is available as a free, limited demo, or as a $30 license.
