4D Inc. today announced the release of
4D WebSTAR Server Suite 4.5 for Mac OS 9. The update, offered free to all registered 4D WebSTAR 4.x users, is available for download now.
4D Inc. president and CEO Brendan Coveney explained that while his company is focusing intensely on 4D WebSTAR V for OS X, 4D WebSTAR for Mac OS 9 is still an effort they’re continuing.
To help cater to the specific needs of OS 9 users, the Web server in 4D WebSTAR 4.5 has been “decarbonized” to help improve performance and eliminate memory leaks, according to the company.
The Admin application has also been updated to allow connections to the new 4D WEbSTAR 4.5 server. A new File Upload plug-in for HTTP file uploads has been implemented — the plug in supports long file names and paths, including those from Windows PCs.
4D WebSTAR 4.5 runs on Mac OS 8.6 or higher. Mac OS 9 is recommended.
