Interarchy 9 supports SSH
Nolobe this week unveiled Interarchy 9, a major update to it advanced file transfer application for Mac OS X. The update introduces over one hundred new and improved features, including a brand new protocol built upon SSH, numerous enhancements to the product's interface, plus much more. The new SSH protocol provides a number of advantages over incumbent protocols such as FTP and SFTP, including better performance and greater flexibility. "This means mirrors should take a lot less time to complete," the company said in its release notes. "Our internal testing has shown dramatic speed improvements for moderately sized websites; seconds versus minutes." Other changes in version 9 include re-ordering of tabs, a new sidebar listing for convenient access from any window, support for workspaces, support for copy/paste of files/folders, a redesigned 'transfers' window, and the ability to create new remote files from local templates.
Nolobe will be demonstrating Interarchy, as well as its new image editor Iris, next week at Macworld Expo in San Francisco. Through February 2008 Interarchy 9 is available at an introductory price of $40 ($20 discount). A free upgrade is offered to all users who purchased Interarchy on or after February 1, 2007 and for $30 to all registered owners of Interarchy 8.5.4 or earlier. Interarchy 9 requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later (Mac OS X 10.5 is recommended).
