OXtender beta launched
Open-Xchange is now previewing an iSync connector for its open-source groupware suite, the OXtender for Mac OS X. The beta software allows Mac users to access Open-Xchange servers and groupware e-mail, appointments, documents, contacts and tasks through standard Mac OS X applications like Mail, iCal and Address Book. Using OXtender, groupware data can be accessed and edited within OS X applications, despite the actual data being on a central server and available to users on multiple platforms.
The OXtender can also sync mobile devices like iPhones, iPods and non-Apple cell phones and supports pushing e-mail, calendars and contacts for MobileMe iPhone users. The beta software installs on Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and syncs via iSync with Open-Xchange Server 6.
