FiveSpeed Software has released iGet 2.0.5 which, they admit, is the result of a packaging error. For about thirty minutes today an incorrectly-built iGet 2.0.4 disk image was accidentally made available on their web server. Eeep!!! This meant that although the file claimed to be the iGet 2.0.4 disk image, it was corrupt.
Rather than just fix the release and confuse people who had already downloaded the corrupted version, Five Speed has packaged and released a new version. They offer their apologies to the hundred or so users who downloaded the bogus 2.0.4 disk image before they were able to correct the error. All users should upgrade as normal to version 2.0.5.
iGet is a file transfer tool for Mac OS X that lets you move files between Macs without resorting to archaic or only partially compatible protocols (like FTP or SFTP). And unlike AppleShare, iGet is network-oriented and designed to be fast over real-world Internet connections, and not just 100Mbps or 1Gbps LANs.
iGet is offered as shareware and costs USD$49.95 to register.
