Extensis is pleased to announce a “preview release” of Portfolio 6 for Mac
OS X, available for immediate download.
The release marks the first phase of a plan to bring the entire Portfolio
product line to Mac OS X over the next several months. Registered owners of
Portfolio 6, which began shipping in February, will be eligible to receive
a free upgrade to the final Mac OS X version of Portfolio 6 when it becomes
available later this summer.
Meanwhile, Portfolio 6 Server for Mac OS X, which extends the
image-cataloging and file-management power of Portfolio to larger
workgroups, will be released next month. The Mac OS X edition of Portfolio
Server will be fully compatible with both the currently-shipping version of
Portfolio 6, as well as the native Mac OS X version that will ship later.
Extensis is making this early (alpha) release of Portfolio for Mac OS X
available to the public in response to strong interest from customers who
would like to begin using the award-wining digital asset management program
in a fully-native Mac OS X environment, The preview version does not yet
include all the features currently available in Portfolio 6, but it does
offers many fully-implemented Mac OS X features, including the ability to
catalog any file, folder or disk in Portfolio using a contextual menu that
appears in the Mac OS X Finder. A list of the features that are not yet
implemented in this release is included in the documentation that comes
with the pre-release software.
Extensis plans to release updates to the preview on a regular basis, and to
introduce a beta version of the software within the next four to six weeks.
The Portfolio 6 for Mac OS X Preview is available now from the Extensis
beta website http://beta.extensis.com — pre-release software is free and
will expire in September 2002.
