iGetter v2.0 for Mac OS X released 08/30/04 08:59 AM

Presenta Ltd. announces iGetter 2.0

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

August 30, 2004 - Presenta Ltd. is pleased to announce the new release of iGetter version 2.0 for Mac OS X.

iGetter is a full featured download manager and accelerator. With iGetter you can get the most out of your Internet connection (dial-up, wireless, cable, DSL, T1 etc.). iGetter can greatly improve the speed of your downloads using segmented (accelerated) downloading. In addition it allows auto resume on broken downloads, queue filtering by various criteria, history list, scheduling downloads for low traffic periods, auto redial on broken connection, auto hang-up and shut down on completion, and much more.

New In Version 2.0:

- Completely rewritten download engine. The new engine uses native Mac OS X sockets from the UNIX layer, which overcomes bottlenecks of Carbon and Cocoa network layers.
- The new engine is fully preemptive multitasking and uses native Mac OS X pthreads from the UNIX layer, which increases the performance of the application especially on multiprocessor systems.
