Speed Download updates
Yazsoft has posted updates for its two Speed Download applications, which manage and resume downloads, and (depending on the version) can provide miscellaneous services such as an FTP client, an RSS reader, and support for iDisk and WebDAV. Speed Download 5.0.7 and SD Lite 1.0.4 have been newly optimized for Mac OS X 10.5.5, and now support Apple's long-standing AFP (Apple Filing Protocol) format.
The updates additionally fix several FTP errors, and make adjustments to the WebDAV component, which should improve performance and compatibility. A host of general changes are meanwhile said to have been made "under the hood," in order to accommodate the latest features. A license for SD Lite costs $20, while regular Speed Download licenses start at $25. Reduced prices are available for upgrades.
