Noi apariţii/versiuni de software popular

BitDefender Professional 7.2 - 10.5 MB
BitDefender Free Edition v7 - 10.4 MB

Un alt antivirus romanesc, alaturi de (ex?)autohtonul RAV.
Doua lucruri amuzante imi vin in minte cind ma gindesc la software-ul de mai sus:
Primul se refera la link-ul dat de MajorGeeks: Desi am dat click pe el, n-a mers. In ultima instanta, am schimbat extensia .com cu .ro si am vazut ca lucrurile stau altfel. :wink:

Al doilea este ceva mai vechi. La o zi dupa ce postasem o stire legata de virusi si de motoarele online de scanare, primesc doua mail-uri (aparent identice) politicoase dar destul de "intepate" de la SoftWin, nimeni alta decit firma ce a creat BitDefender. Autorul mail-urilor ma intreba, oarecum retoric, de ce nu am mentionat si produsul lor in lista respectiva. Ce m-a intrigat a fost acuza extrem de fina prin care imi taxa omisiunea, facind paralela cu "dezinteresul pentru industria de software autohtona". In schimb, ce mi-a stirnit zimbetul a fost un detaliu, si anume faptul ca, vorbind "in general" de aceasta industrie, autorul a spus ceva si de RAV. Deschizind la intimplare al doilea mail (ce parea un simplu double send), observ ca autorul a scos referirea la RAV de data aceasta. :smile:

Nu mai stiu exact care fusesera motivele pentru care nu inclusesem BitDefender, cert e ca dupa primirea mail-ului am bijbiit dupa motorul de care imi vorbea. Acum am dat imediat de el, propabil pentru ca au schimbat design-ul site-ului (cred), am avut noroc sau pur si simplu sint mai destept. :biggrin:

Changelog 7.2
Eu rulez de o vreme versiunea beta, fără probleme. Nu am văzut mari diferenţe faţă de 1.2, doar că e mai user-friendly şi are şi interfaţă în limba română.

QuickTime Alternative 1.30 RC3 - 6.4 MB
QuickTime Alternative will allow you to play QuickTime (.mov .qt) files. This way there is no need to install the offical QuickTime Player. As a bonus, Internet Explorer will play all QuickTime movies that are embedded in a webpage. You do need a player that is capable of handling QuickTime movies. The included Media Player Classic works very well with QuickTime.
RealPlayer 10.0 Beta - 9.5 MB
Iarasi, un soft ce nu mai are nevoie de prezentare. Pentru cei ce au lipsit in ultimii zece ani de pe planeta Pamint, o scurta prezentare:

AudioGrabber va fi lansat ca freeware.

Autorul software-ului (Jackie Franck) este cel care a dezvoltat AudioCatalyst pentru Xing (detalii). De AudioCatalyst n-am mai auzit de mult timp nimic, de când (bănuiesc că) au fost cumpăraţi de Real Networks (link-ul de download duce la această pagină, de unde se poate cumpăra Xing MP3 Encoder.

M-am pierdut în amănunte, ideea e că AudioGrabber va fi oferit gratuit datorită contractului cu Xing care va expira pe 9 februarie 2004.
