announced the release of Version Master-Mac 2.0, the first of two

When updates occur to the specific software users have on their Macs,
Version Master will send an e-mail notifying the user that a newer
version is available. Symmetry even verifies if the version is an
official release or an unofficial version in restricted release by
its developer. A Sherlock Plug-In is included which accesses the new
search engine at the Version Master web site.
"We have totally rebuilt and enhanced this product and the service it
provides", reports Thomas Reahard, President of Symmetry Software and
creator of Version Master. "More powerful servers have increased
Version Master's usefulness. Even if a user just wants to log onto
our web site and conduct a quick query, the answer to his update
issue may found instantly."
