Librarian Pro 2 adds business optimizations
Koingo Software has launched updates of two of its software titles, MacPilot 4 and Librarian Pro 2. Mac Pilot enables hidden features and abilities in the MAC OS, and can optimize and run maintenance routines as well. It runs a user interface over more arcane UNIX scripts, allowing everyday users access to features like disabling menu-bar translucency, erasing recently used files, disabling system animations and changing winnow resizing speeds.
Version 4 of Mac Pilot adds 91 new features, chiefly save points, which allow users to save a system state for a later restore. It requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher and costs $20, with family, business and other multi-license packages available.
Library Pro is personal inventory software -- it can organize items in smart collections and track their comings and goings, such as loaning them to friends. It supports imports from cataloging applications like Delicious Library and DVDpedia and has smart search capability. Version 2.0 adds business-based features -- a new borrowing system with late-fee tracking, along with borrowing histories and support for multiple copies of the same item.
Library Pro 2 requires Mac OS X 10.5. It costs $20, and has business and other multi-license packages available.
