Objective Development has released an update for Sharity, bringing it to version 2.9. Sharity is a file sharing client designed for cross-platform compatibility. The update features improved security and bug fixes. According to Objective Development:
OBJECTIVE DEVELOPMENT today announced the availability of their interoperability software SHARITY
in the stable 2.9 release.
Sharity mounts shares exported by these servers in the file system of Mac OS X and Unix computers. Mounting means that you can open files directly from the server with any application you like, as if they were on a local disk.
WHAT IS NEW IN THIS VERSION?
- NTLMv2 authentication for improved password security
- SMB signing for compatibility with Windows 2003 domain controllers
- Fixed a bug which could corrupt data in files greater than 4GB
- Fixed numerous minor bugs.
You can find more information about the Sharity update at the Objective Development Web site. Sharity 2.9 upgrades are free for registered users, while multiple connections start at US$59.00.
