Kanex Group Inc. has updated
— the Mac OS X software for exchanging popup messages over corporate, school and home networks without connecting to the Internet — to version 4.0.
The update adds a new message format, which purportedly allows faster, more reliable and secure messaging, and a Sent Messages Archive. Using the archive, you can browse all your sent messages, resend them if you wish, save them to a file or print them. With a new Transparent Message Encryption feature, QuickPopup encrypts all messages before they leave your Mac; they’re automatically decrypted on the recipient’s computer.
QuickPopup 4.0 also adds clickable URLs and the ability to use longer user names. All URLs — such as Web site names, e-mail addresses, etc. — are automatically highlighted in the received messages; you can simply click on them to go to the URL. QuickPopup also now supports user names up to 27 characters long.
QuickPopup 4.0 is built for Mac OS X, but will also run on Mac OS 7.5 or later if OpenTransport 1.1 or later is installed. A 30-day demo version is
available for download. Pricing starts at US$15 per copy with discounts offered for site licenses and educational institutions. All current customers get version 4.0 for free.
