Extensis Announces Preview of Portfolio 6 for Mac OS X
|Portland, Ore – June 5, 2002 – Extensis today announced the availability of a preview version of Portfolio 6 for Mac OS X. Portfolio 6 is Extensis popular digital asset management (DAM) product for professionals to share, organize, retrieve and distribute the digital files they create and use on a regular basis.
The preview release of Portfolio 6 for OS X 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.
The second phase will occur when Portfolio 6 Server for Mac OS X, which extends the image-cataloging and file-management power of Portfolio to larger workgroups, will be released in July of 2002. 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 this summer.
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 at http://beta.extensis.com — pre-release software is free and will expire in September 2002.
