Hannover, Germany, October 9, 2012 – HELIOS Software, developer of well-known file, print, image and PDF server software, released today a fundamental update for its Web file server WebShare UB2. Optimized code, with better performance and higher HTML compatibility are the major benefits from choosing the Eclipse IDE for the Java development.

Our attention to fine details such as localized date and time formats, time zone support, advanced file transfers, and remote file & folder synchronization enhance the overall user experience. I'm excited about this highly optimized and polished update.”

HELIOS WebShare UB2 now supports file up- and downloads of any size. Using the included Mac and Windows native application, WebShare Manager, resumable file transfers without any limits can be handled in a very convenient way.
