Equinux software updates

Equinux has updated two of its key programs, MediaCentral and VPN Tracker. MediaCentral operates as a kind of Mac equivalent to Windows Media Center, combining the playback of several types of media within one program; users can not only load music, photos and videos, but DVD movies and TV, the latter offering the option of IPTV or digital broadcast. Version 2.7 retools the TV engine for better video quality and faster channel switching, as well automatic timeshifting when hitting pause. The software costs $30.

VPN Tracker attempts to simplify connecting to VPN networks, using an interface that resembles Apple's iChat client. Actions can also be created to speed up launch tasks, such as checking e-mail, mounting servers or opening databases and URLs. The v5.1 update improves support for WatchGuard gateways, and includes special client provisioning for them as well as operation with Mobile User VPN. Prices range from $80 for the Player edition to $250 for Professional.
