INSIDER RELEASES UPDATEAGENT X 10.1
Leading Software Updater Improves FTP and HTTP Protocol Support
October 16, 2001 [Carlsbad, California] Insider UpdateAgent X version 10.1
was released today with support for Mac OS X 10.1, upgraded support for FTP
and HTTP protocols for downloading Macintosh application updaters, as well
as several maintenance fixes. The new release now contains direct support
for both protocols, attempting to download first via FTP, then via HTTP if
FTP fails. The five-mouse-rated Internet service brings all Macintosh
applications up-to-date-including traditional Mac Classic applications,
Classic apps carbonized for Mac OS X, and Cocoa applications written
specifically for Mac OS X systems.
“By providing support for both protocols within UpdateAgent X, we’re
delivering sure-fire performance and reliability,” commented Rio Sabadicci,
president of Insider Software. “This way we can guarantee that UpdateAgent
customers connect directly to our update servers with state-of-the-art
