today announced the release of UpdateAgent 10.0.4. The software has been developed to enable users to update all their Macintosh applications. The new version improves performance, enhances scheduling capabilities and adds power management to its feature set.
UpdateAgent 10.0.4 supports both Mac OS 9 and Mac OS X — the software will sniff out new versions of “Classic” Mac applications, Carbonized apps, and apps developed using Cocoa, as well.
Insider Software president Rio Sabadicci calls UpdateAgent the simplest way to keep your Mac up to date.
“This release makes it even simpler — almost automatic — for users to stay current with the latest technology from over 2,000 developers,” said Sabadicci.
Scanning for outdated apps is now 30 percent faster, under both Mac OS 9 and X. The scheduling functionality enables users to tell UpdateAgent to search for updated apps during times when the Mac is unused or when network traffic is minimal. And UpdateAgent can also be configured to put the Mac to sleep or shut it down completely after sessions are finished.
Insider UpdateAgent X 10.0.4 is free to all registered users. New users can download a demo version, as well. The software costs US$49.95 for a year of updates. System requirements call for 3MB of available memory plus whatever disk space is needed to cache update files.
