FileWave 3.0 ships
FileWave today unveiled the latest version of its software management suite for Mac OS X: FileWave 3.0. FileWave offers distribution, installation and configuration of software in multi-platform environments. The new release brings further performance enhancements and more administrative flexibility, enabling simultaneous login by multiple administrators as well as audit logging of administrator actions and access privileges for each administrator account. The latest release also enhances the user interface, including new icons and a cleaner look. FileWave insists that new customers will benefit from the ability to mass deploy the FileWave Client on first-time installation. Version 3.0 also brings performance improvements with login and server updating. Windows and Linux versions are expected to be released in the coming months. [corrected]
