Thursby Software Systems
today announced the release of DAVE 3.1, its Mac to PC file and printer sharing software. Among the features in the new version is support for Mac OS X 10.1.
Thursby noted that DAVE 3.1 incorporates separate installers for Mac OS X 10.1 users and for users of Mac OS 8.6 – 9.2. The new release enables Windows users working on the same network as Mac OS X 10.1 users running DAVE 3.1 to see and share their inkjet and PostScript printers. The “Classic” Mac version supports bidirectional PostScript printing.
Thursby notes some other features as well:
Large file support (greater than 2 GB) in OS 9 and OS 10.1
Long file name support (more than 31 characters) in OS 9 and OS 10.1
Network Logon for Microsoft Domain access
Automatic workgroup detection
Use of Microsoft native protocols so no additional hardware or software is needed for the PC
Anyone who purchased DAVE during this calendar year is entitled to a free electronic upgrade by December 31, 2001; DAVE users on support contracts are likewise covered. Other customers can upgrade for US$89.95. DAVE 3.1’s retail cost is $149.
