Urchin Software Corp.
recently worked with Apple to optimize Urchin, their Web analytics application, for the Power Mac G5. The result is Urchin 5.5, which was unveiled on Tuesday at
Macworld Conference & Expo. The company notes that the upgrade is up to 50 percent faster than Urchin 5.
The new version also sports better SVG-powered Business Ready Graphics, which now allow those who use Apple’s Safari Web browser to experience all the interactivity found in Urchin’s reports.
“High-traffic-volume sites with gigabytes of log volume per day will benefit by adopting the G5 platform,” said Urchin VP of Marketing Brett Crosby. “Urchin 5.5 on the Xserve makes a complete turnkey webhosting and marketing intelligence solution.”
The update is free for existing Urchin 5 customers and can be downloaded from the Urchin Software Web site.
