iNuron on Friday introduced a public beta version of its
McNucle software. McNucle turns the Mac into a metadata-based file server.
With McNucle installed, you can “metanize” your data, according to the developers. “To metanize” means to organize with metadata. McNucle helps you share and search that data from anywhere. You can share all of your music, pictures and other content with others.
McNucle consists of two distinct parts: The McNucle Server, and a separate Nucle Browser, available for Mac OS X and Windows. McNucle enables you to access your data from a browser on any Internet-connected computer, Mac or PC. You can send out invitations to other users, to share family photos, for example, or important documents with business colleagues. The browser window organizes content by shortcuts — documents, movies, pictures and movies, for example; lets you sort by concept, previews content by showing thumbnails, and more.
System requirements for the server call for a G4/400MHz or faster, Mac OS X v10.4 or later and Java JS2E 5.0. The browser calls for 1.2GHz or faster processor with 512MB RAM and JS2E 5.0. Both the server and browser need a broadband Internet connection.
