SlingShot 1.2 for syncing

Martian Technology today released SlingShot 1.2, an update to its network file and folder synchronization application for Mac OS X. SlingShot 1.2 more than doubles the speed of sync operations, adds a new "menubar mode" that keeps the main app window hidden, and includes several UI tweaks and fixes for bugs reported by our users. The software helps users keep files in sync between two or more Macs as simple as a few clicks. By incorporating Apple's "Bonjour" technology, SlingShot makes finding and connecting to other computers on a network easy. SlingShot supports both simple one-way "mirroring" of files from one computer to another, as well as more complex two-way synchronization arrangements, in which files are updated on all participating computers. SlingShot 1.2 is available as a Universal Binary; it requires Mac OS X 10.4 or newer; it is a free upgrade to current users, while new licenses can be purchased for $30. A free trial version is available online.
