Near-Time, Inc. announced the commercial availability of Near-Time Current
for Mac OS X. Current transcends traditional text editors, bookmark managers, Web clipping software, outliners, newsreaders, and blogging software. It combines these functions, leveraging the immediacy of the Internet while offering a rich desktop environment for authoring and publishing. Current’s authoring and publishing capabilities allow you to create documents from many sources simultaneously, merge links and Web page content with your documents, and post the results to Web sites and blogs, with accompanying RSS or Atom news feeds. It works with both desktop and Internet content, and has a built-in Web browser and full text search capabilities. Application files of all types, including QuickTime, photos, html pages, and mp3 files, can be stored and launched within Current. Content from Current can be published to Weblogs via Blogger and MetaWeblog APIs, as RSS feeds and as Web pages to Apple iDisk or Web servers. This gives users one tool for authoring, gathering, organizing, and the publishing of content. Supported standards include XML, HTML, FTP, WebDav, SMTP, iDisk, RSS, and Web logs (via Atom). Near-Time Current is available for download and Near-Time Current licenses are priced at $49.95 per user.
