[11:15 AM] OmniGroup Updates MacOS X Browser & Backup Utility

The Omni Group has released OmniGroup Backup and has updated OmniWeb to version 3.0.2. OmniGroup Backup is a new application for backup and data storage on the Mac OS X Server. OmniWeb is a full featured web browser for Mac OS X, and the new version incorporates a number of bug fixes. According to The Omni Group:

OmniGroup Backup Personal Edition is a fully functional application. It gives users the ability to back up and restore files from extended Macintosh (HFS+) and Unix (UFS) volumes, as well as set a schedule for unattended backups. The Professional Edition has extra features including the ability to back up Unix network volumes (via NFS) and to create unlimited fileSets and archives.

Omni president Wil Shipley commented, "We are very happy to be providing the backup software for this community -- Mac OS X is a technology in which we believe very strongly. We decided a year ago to assist Apple by writing an application of their choosing for them for free, and this was what they said would help their customers the most. We're very pleased with the results so far, and we have some really cool plans for future versions of Backup, as well."

OmniGroup Backup Professional Edition is available for US$119.95 for a single license, while the Personal Edition is free to users of Mac OS X Server. OmniWeb is available for US$59.95 for a single license. You can find more information about OmniGroup Backup and OmniWeb at he Omni Group web site.
