Interarchy changes hands
Nolobe has acquired Stairways Software's Interarchy file transfer software. Described as an "employee buyout," lead developer Matthew Drayton has formed Nolobe Pty Ltd and acquired all rights to Interarchy. According to Stairways, Drayton has been "leading the development of Interarchy for some years now, so customers can expect the same level of quality software development and innovative features as Nolobe continues to develop and enhance Interarchy going forward." Nolobe will honor all existing licenses, and expects to release a new free upgrade (8.5) soon before continuing work on the next major release (9.0) due out later this year. "In general, users should not see any immediate change and can expect Interarchy to continue to lead the way in Internet clients. Price and availability remain the same," the company said in a statement. New customers can purchase Interarchy from Nolobe Store for $60.
