We have just uploaded some much needed updates to the Pangea connection application for Mac!  Technically, this is just a simple Applescript which instructs the Finder application to do a Connect To Server operation.  The issue we were seeing with the older versions is that users who had passwords that contained certain special characters were not able to connect.  Basically, those special characters were breaking the Applescript.  This new version contains a special bit of code which ‘encodes’ each character, making them Applescript friendly, and hopefully solving those issues.  Below you will find information on the new version numbers so you can see which one you have installed.  Let us know how these are working if you give them a shot!  Thanks!
