Pulse 2.5 delivers on our promise to enterprise customers on compatibility issues while working both within and outside of firewall settings; it’s also much faster and gives greater control over software use and distribution
Flower Mound, TX (Vocus) July 20, 2009
Genuitec, LLC, a founding and strategic member of the Eclipse Foundation, announced today the immediate availability of Pulse 2.5. The release includes Eclipse Galileo (3.5) support, intelligent algorithms for optimal download speeds and greater control of the entire Eclipse software catalog. Enterprises will enjoy the ability to manage and share proprietary software among users with expanded support for varying architectures.
Free for individual users, Pulse 2.5 boasts the most flexible Eclipse software profiles on the market – managing Eclipse even behind corporate firewalls (including in-house tooling). For software teams and enterprises, Pulse now has better compatibility within corporate network infrastructure. Using the new Communications Wizard, IT managers can help developers install all necessary Eclipse and corporate propriety software in a secure environment.
“Pulse 2.5 delivers on our promise to enterprise customers on compatibility issues while working both within and outside of firewall settings; it’s also much faster and gives greater control over software use and distribution,” said Tim Webb, Pulse project manager for Genuitec. “In support of the growing number of Apple-based developers, Pulse is the only software distribution platform that includes 64-bit Cocoa – something that was not included in the Eclipse 3.5 release train in mid-June.”
Greatly enhanced Pulse 2.5 capabilities are:
- Accepts proprietary software into catalog for secure sharing
- Includes entire Eclipse 3.5 Galileo catalog
- Unique support for Apple’s 64-bit Cocoa
- Speed upgrades
- Greater control of software profiles and stacks
- New download dashboard to pause, resume and re-route incoming software
- User profile data lives in the Cloud for use anywhere on any machine and OS
- Fully customizable tool stacks made from the catalog, update sites, drop-ins or any combination
- Configuration simplification: No more "managed update sites" versus "local update sites"
- Enhanced proxy support: huge improvements to work seamlessly with all common (and many not-so-common) proxy configurations
- Still completely free of charge for individuals
“Genuitec’s Pulse technology continues to outpace the market by giving software developers exactly what they want – the ability to have their tools operate with one another thereby avoiding compatibility issues,” said Todd Williams, vice president of technology for Genuitec. “Corporate customers can add-in their own software to share and distribute to staff and end-users; this is the differentiator between Pulse and other offerings in the market.”
