[prMac.com] Cincinnati, Ohio - Code by Kevin has released version 2.1 of QuickWho, an OS X GUI to help users look up Internet domain registrations. QuickWho provides a handy graphical interface to the Unix "whois" command-line utility on OS X, which is used to find out more about who registered a particular Internet domain name. Are you curious about who owns a particular domain name? Do you want to contact them, or gather more information about them? QuickWho can help you with these tasks.
QuickWho compared to other "whois" tools:
* Simpler than using the command-line. Type, hit return, and view the data
* Faster than other GUI tools: tree view makes it easy to query multiple servers with mouse or keyboard clicks
* Less cumbersome than using an Internet-based whois tool. No need to load web page into browser
* Pleasant-to-use, Mac-native interface
Among the new features in QuickWho 2.1:
* Now a fully 64-bit application built on the Cocoa frameworks
*Now includes support for AppleScript and Services
* Main window behavior now fully conforms to Mac UI standards: window hides when closed or via Command-W, and minimizes via Command-M
* Bug fixes and optimizations for faster output
* Assorted user interface improvements
Pricing and Availability:
QuickWho is shareware. The download is a 30-day demo; you can purchase a license to use the program past the 30-day trial period. Mac OS X 10.5 is the minimum supported platform. QuickWho is a universal binary and licenses cost $12.95 (USD).
