Gracion Announces Universal Version of DigiTunnel Application

ASHLAND, OR -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 13, 2006 --Gracion Software LLC today announced the availability of a Universal version of its DigiTunnel VPN (Virtual Private Network) client software for Mac OS X version 10.4 "Tiger." Today's announcement means DigiTunnel is now compatible with both Intel- and PowerPC-based Macs.

"Creating Universal applications has been an easy process, even though DigiTunnel works at a low-level within the operating system, where you would expect significant compatibility issues," said Paul A. Collins, Gracion's President. "The tools, documentation, and support provided by Apple have made for very smooth sailing and we're delighted our DigiTunnel customers can now use the power of the new Intel-based Macs."

"Xcode gives developers the opportunity to quickly and easily deliver Universal applications for our blazing fast new hardware," said Ron Okamoto, Apple's vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. "We're thrilled Gracion has joined the rapidly growing community of developers with Universal versions of their applications."

DigiTunnel is a VPN client for connecting to VPN servers such as Windows Server, NT Server 4.0, Watchguard, Nortel, TrendNet, and Mac OS X Server version 10.4 "Tiger" using industry standard PPTP. Working over ordinary Internet connections, DigiTunnel creates an encrypted extension of a remote network. Secure file sharing, email, and Intranet web services are then available to remote Mac users. DigiTunnel Setup Assistant and the system-wide control/status menu make setup and use a snap, and prompt email and phone support is provided. DigiTunnel 1.4.3 is $58, and upgrades from DigiTunnel version 1.3 are free.

Gracion also announced today that the Universal version of Pronto Patent, the graphical patent document download utility, is on schedule to ship late February 2006.
