The iFolder project, a Novell-sponsored open source initiative that
simplifies synchronizing files across multiple systems and enables users
to securely access and share files with other users, today announced its
first open source release since 2007. Available immediately, users and
developers can download iFolder 3.7.2 client and server packages and
source code. The latest release adds several features, including support
for new platforms, additional security options, improved handling of
file conflicts, and capabilities for merging files. In addition to an
updated project Website, Novell has put in place a community development
plan to ensure that iFolder becomes and remains a vital open source project.

With support for all major client platforms, the iFolder client software
is now available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, including openSUSE
10.3 and Windows Vista. Users also get enhanced security, back-up and
restore capabilities and the flexibility to access files from a web
browser on any computer. Merging files is now supported and managing
multiple file versions is simplified with improved conflict management.

Available under the GNU General Public License version 2, iFolder is an
ideal solution for power users, road warriors and teams that need to
share files. The source code is available immediately and packages for
openSUSE 11.1 will be available in the second quarter of 2009. The
iFolder project serves as the foundation for Novell iFolder, which is
part of Novell Open Enterprise Server. For more information on the
