is a cross-platform communication and file-sharing community suite, similar to the popular 'Hotline' and 'Carracho' client-server suites. Unlike its competitors, says developer Bracast, Ravanex includes a more robust feature set, with IRC-style chatting, bandwidth capping, a wide range of banning options, peer-to-peer "mini games," account templates, integrated 'bots,' and media playing. Ravanex consists of client and server applications, as well as applications for icon creation and database publishing. The suite is expected to be available for Mac OS X in the latter quarter of 2002, or in early 2003.
