TechTraker Pro OS X - the software-management tool that upgrades software and finds new OS X releases - is shipping.

Running as a native Cocoa application, TechTracker Pro OS X creates a list of installed software and notifies users when software requires updating - allowing a personal computer inventory of applications to be tracked.

Developed by TechTracker, the app provides a personalised home page that tracks software by category or keyword.

The software is available free for a 30-day evaluation. After that, it costs $99.95 a year. For a limited introductory period, the software is being offered for $49.95. No UK pricing is available.
