over 3 years ago by IanDorfman

ExpanDrive, Inc. announced the release of the public beta for version 7 of its popular virtual filesystem ExpanDrive last week on its official blog. Touting enhanced performance ("faster and more powerful in nearly every dimension"), support for Linux kernel operating systems, and a new user interface, the company says this is the biggest release for the application since version 3 and its added support of several cloud hosting providers.

According to the ExpanDrive 7 download page, the app's "multi-threaded connection engine" is 500% percent more powerful than ExpanDrive 6, allowing it to perform dramatically faster parallel transfers in the background while you go about your other tasks.

The Linux download page includes packages that support Debian, Linux Mint, and Ubuntu (Deb format), as well as Fedora and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RPM format). The page also includes installation instructions.

Version 7.0.4 of ExpanDrive is available to download from the product's official website.
