Sharity improves browsing, sports new NFS3 module

Objective Development has released Sharity 2.7, the latest version of their CIFS/SMB client that mounts files from Windows networks.

Sharity connects your Mac OS X or Unix machine to Windows and other CIFS file servers. The application mounts these servers in your filesystem, which means that you can open files directly from the server with any application you like, as if they were on a local disk. Sharity is a CIFS client only.

Version 2.7 improves browsing and fixes some bugs, including deadlocks in Mac OS X (especially 10.1.4 and greater). It also has a new NFS3 module that breaks the 2GB file size limit inherent to the NFS2 module used so far -- it requires that the operating system supports NFS3 "sufficiently well," according to Christian Starkjohann, technical director & marketing director at Objective Development.

For non-commercial use (Mac OS X, Linux and FreeBSD only), Sharity is free for one installation and one connection. Two installations and unlimited connections cost US$59.

Business prices are: one installation, one connection, $99; one installation, unlimited connections, $199; two installations, unlimited connections, $325; five installations, unlimited connections, $615; unlimited installations, one connection, $249; unlimited installations, two connections, $465; unlimited installations, five connections, $1,065. Upgrades to version 2.7 for registered users are free.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
