Software Update: NetLimiter 3 Beta 1

Locktime Software has released a public beta release of NetLimiter version 3. With this program all incoming and outgoing network and internet traffic can be monitored. The program is available in three different versions, namely Monitor, Lite and Pro. The first is free to use, but only displays information. The other two cost seventeen and thirty dollars respectively, but can also do more, including setting the allowed bandwidth per application or process. A clear difference between the three versions is on this page to find. NetLimiter works on all Windows versions from 2000 onwards. Below are the release notes for this beta release:
