OBJECTIVE DEVELOPMENT’S SHARITY SOFTWARE NOW AVAILABLE IN STABLE 2.7
RELEASE — ACCESS WINDOWS FILE SERVERS FROM MAC OS X AND UNIX
Vienna, Austria – June 4, 2001 — Objective Development today announced the
availability of the stable 2.7 release of their interoperability software
“Sharity”. Sharity is a client for the file sharing protocol used by
Windows (95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP), Windows for Workgroups, OS/2, Samba and
many others. Sharity mounts shares exported by these servers in the file
system of Mac OS X and Unix computers. Mounting means that you can open
files directly from the server with any application you like, as if they
were on a local disk.
* Easy installation.
* Browsing of servers and shares in the file system
* Avoids the security flaws of NFS.
* Is compatible with national character sets. Sharity works with
Unicode internally and allows translation even to Asian multi-byte
* Runs on Mac OS X, Mac OS X Server, Linux, FreeBSD, SGI/IRIX, HP-UX,
Solaris, SunOS, Compaq Tru64 Unix, AIX, NetBSD, OpenBSD, BSDI,
Unixware, Openstep/Mach, Nextstep
WHAT IS NEW IN THIS VERSION?
* Fixed deadlocks on Mac OS X (especially 10.1.4 and greater).
* New NFS3 module breaks the 2GB file size limit inherent to the
NFS2 module used so far. (Requires that the operating system
supports NFS3 sufficiently well.)
* Improved browsing, Sharity should now be able to find the list of
servers in almost any network.
* Fixed various bugs.
