is using this week’s Apple Expo in Paris, France to introduce new versions of eKiosk and bManager.
eKiosk 4.0 Preview Version will be on display. eKiosk is a secure Web browser for Mac OS X specifically designed for use in public Internet kiosks. Working with Netscape’s Gecko engine, eKiosk forces a full screen mode that allows no access to the Finder.
The new version is Mac OS X-native (previous versions controlled Internet Explorer with AppleScript and worked only in “Classic” Mac OS), and is compatible with Flash and QuickTime; sports a URL control function; and features a function which limits users’ time.
Coming at the end of September, eKiosk 4.0 will be localized for English and French.
Also being shown off this week is bManager 3.0 Preview Version — a new version of the Customer Relationship Management (CRM) package for the Macintosh. bManager 3.0 is a full CRM contact manager for “Classic” Mac OS and Mac OS X you can use to manage documents and mailings. The new version sports an easier to use, more powerful interface, according to AppMac, and now supports the vCard format.
Likewise, bManager 3.0 is anticipated for a late September release.
