Original Press Release:

System Imaging Made Easier than Ever with FileWave 3.7

SAN FRANCISCO, April 23 -- FileWave, a technology leader for software management on the Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux systems, announces the release of FileWave 3.7 for Mac OS. In addition to distributing, installing and configuring operating system upgrades, FileWave permits users to efficiently mass deploy and manage all other types of software, from large ready-to-use applications such as Adobe Creative Suite 4 and Microsoft Office to vital security patches, both in a single- and a multi-platform environment.

FileWave(TM) 3.7, with its own significant performance enhancements and greater administrative flexibility, transforms the process of installing a complicated and time-consuming upgrade into a straightforward and hassle-free affair. FileWave(TM) 3.7 includes a new feature to re-image an entire computer. FileWave had always been able to deliver and remove software but now we've made it easier to duplicate an existing computer and have other computers have exactly the same software installed. To use the FileWave Imager the FileWave Administrator selects a mounted disk volume and creates a new installation from the mounted disk volume. Additionally, the Administrator can control pre and post-installation actions to preserve computer names and user settings.

Additional enhancements to FileWave 3.7 include better searching for clients contained in groups, an idle-log-out of FileWave Admins from the FileWave Server and Fileset Properties to give finer grained control of Filesets stored on the FileWave Server.

"We are pleased to ship FileWave 3.7 with the imaging and Fileset Properties features for the Mac OS," says Ben Forsyth, Director of Software Development at FileWave (USA), Inc. "We've had many requests from our customer base to provide a more seamless imaging solution and with FileWave 3.7, those features are now available."
