iTools 9 update released
Tenon has released a new edition of iTools, bringing the program up to version 9. The software is a web-based graphical interface for administering web servers, and specifically handles Apache, DNS and FTP management. The greatest change to v9 is the inclusion of Apache 2.2.6, which is said to have better memory and disk use, support for file sizes above 2GB, and a new database interface architecture. The FTP component of the program now has a new File Manager, which lets admins assign clients to specific groups, which are then given permissions for uploading, renaming and deleting files.
The update is also said to make a variety of unspecified improvements and bug fixes, affecting aspects of both FTP and DNS administration. iTools 9 is being sold in separate packages for Intel and PowerPC Macs, each costing $350 new or $275 as an upgrade. Mac OS X 10.2 or later is required, along with 256MB of RAM and 200MB of disk space.
