Version 1.0, build 121 is here and is available on download.com too. There are some new features in the v1.0 as compared to the RC build 109. You will find features like many-to-many backup to backup multiple local folders to multiple cloud storage services; better bandwidth control and better task manager. The focus of the v1.0 is on how to enhance the user experience of transferring data between local PC and remote cloud storage, with a mapped network drive.
V1.0 is a pretty big milestone after the long beta march. We would like to thank our beta users first. We wouldn't have achieved version 1.0 without their feedback and bug reports. For those beta users that have reported issues to us, we would like to give a free v1.0 professional edition license in a couple of weeks. Starter Edition remains free as our contribution to the Internet community.
V1.0 is also a starting point of a long journey to version 3.0, where most software reach a great balance between stability and feature in a complicated software eco system such as Windows. We will continue to improve.
As we were preparing for the V1.0 launch last week, we saw the news of AT&T/EMC entering into the cloud storage business. If Amazon S3 has pushed the idea of cloud storage into the minds of web services developers and business users, AT&T may be able to turn the idea of cloud storage into a household commodity. When the web goes from web 2.0 to web 3.0, when the cloud storage becomes a common practice, Gladinet will be ready to contribute more.
