Stairways Releases Anarchie 3.6
Stairways Shareware has released Anarchie 3.6, dropping “Pro” from the name and improving performance by up to 30 percent over version 3.5. (See "Anarchie (Pro) Continues to Rule" in TidBITS 448 for a review of Anarchie Pro 3.0 and "Anarchie Pro 3.5 Adds Mac OS 8.5 Features" in TidBITS 458) Anarchie 3.6’s improved performance comes from a totally new transfer engine rewritten to the forthcoming Carbon API (see "Mac OS X or Mac OS Next?" in TidBITS 483). New features include the capability to test Sherlock plug-ins, support for downloading from password-protected Web sites, and the capability to resume more failed FTP and Web transfers. At minimum, Anarchie requires System 7 and MacTCP 1.1, with System 7.5.5 and Open Transport 1.2 or later recommended. Anarchie 3.6 is $35 shareware (upgrades are free to registered users of 3.0 and 3.5) and is a 1.4 MB download.
