With recent changes coming to both Mac and Windows OSes, Thursby on Tuesday released new versions of ADmitMac, its Windows Active Directory client software for Macs, and DAVE, its file- and printer-sharing solution. The updates feature support for Mac OS X 10.6 Leopard and Windows 7.

The previous ADmitMac Version 4 and DAVE Version 7 did not support Snow Leopard and a link to uninstalling instructions was featured on the company's support pages (and still is). The current versions of ADmitMac for CAC and ADmitMac for PIV are still incompatible with Snow Leopard.

ADmitMac Version 5 improves compatibility with Active Directory and now supports the Windows Group Policy console.

Administrators can manage their domain users in a consistent way – regardless of whether they use a PC or a Mac. And ADmitMac requires no Active Directory schema changes.

According to the company, DAVE Version 8 supports all current Windows operating systems including Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, Windows XP, Windows 2000 and WIndows NT

When running on Snow Leopard, both products now support 64-bit multi-threaded operation and multiple processors.

The ADmitMac v5 upgrade is $89.95 for users of Version 4.x; the DAVE v8 upgrade is $69.95 for users of Version 7.x.
