NIS 4 for Mac update - available 11/17
I wanted to give you an update about work on NIS 4 and Norton Confidential for Mac. Though we all hoped to have it out this week--and I bent the rules and actually explained the actual date with the caveat that I hated giving dates out because then people would be irritated and angry when we didn't hit that actual date--we have had to push out the schedule a few weeks.
If you are wondering why--and I would be wondering why--it's frankly due to the vast amount of testing that has to be done. Each feature of each product has to be tested on Mac OS X 10.4, 10.5 and 10.6 on both PowerPC and Intel Macs. I could use the testing matrix to wallpaper my apartment. (It's not a big apartment, but it has lots of wallspace.) We're plugging away at it and if we can get the patch out earlier, we will.
I understand how frustrating this is (I had a similar experience with a calendar and contact system that is at least two years late with their major updates) and all I can do is tell you were working as fast as we can. If I have any more updates, I will post to this thread.
In the meantime, NIS users should find that their AV works and firewall functionality is working. We just need to get the privacy tools done.
thanks so much.
