Shareware author Ben Mackin has released Cocoa eFax version 0.9.7, the newest update to the US$5 application for sending and receiving faxes.
Cocoa eFax offers optional cover sheet support, with the ability to create your own cover sheets. It supports a wide variety of modems, “more than FaxSTF supports, everything from Apple Internal modems, to old Global Village serial modems” Mackin said. Received faxes are saved as PDF files, which can be viewed and printed in Acrobat Reader, or the Mac OS X Preview application.
The new version is compatible with Mac OS X 10.2 (“Jaguar”). In fact, it’s address book only works with Jaguar, though there’s a separate build for Mac OS X users who haven’t updated to version 10.2.
A demo copy is
available for download. While it’s being used in an unregistered state, Cocoa eFax allows for unlimited receiving and five sends. After this, you will not be allowed to send any more faxes until you register the application. However, once you send in the $5, the application and all future updates are free, Mackin said.
