Tuxera NTFS for Mac 2011.4 Now Available
Improves Responsiveness for 64-bit Kernels and Supports Mac OS X Lion

HELSINKI, FINLAND – May 3, 2011 – Tuxera Inc., the leading provider of Windows-compatible file systems for Linux, Android, Mac and other platforms, today announced the availability of a new release of its widely adopted Tuxera NTFS for Mac. Among the numerous added enhancements, the new version includes automatic translation of filenames and important improvements in performance on 64-bit kernels. Tuxera NTFS for Mac also ensures full support to the next Mac OS X version 10.7 Lion expected to be released later in 2011.

New components of Mac OS X recently started to encode file attributes in a way that Windows Explorer was not able to access. Tuxera NTFS for Mac 2011.4 brings in automatic translation of filenames, removing any problem when copying files to NTFS volumes. Additionally, this release ensures improved responsiveness when using multiple simultaneous NTFS volumes on 64-bit Mac OS X kernels.

Tuxera NTFS for Mac allows Apple Mac OS X users to read and write in Windows NTFS format fuss-free. Transferring files from Windows to Mac and vice versa is made easy with the help of Tuxera software as the common Windows-formatted hard drives and memory sticks can be used. Tuxera NTFS for Mac is also very popular in companies and universities with heterogeneous computing environments that include both Windows and Mac computers.

¨We are pleased to announce the awaited new Tuxera NTFS for Mac 2011.4 release that makes Mac-Windows interoperability easier and more productive” says Oscar Santolalla, Product Manager at Tuxera. ¨Tuxera is fully committed to provide Mac users with the best file system interoperability experience.
