OpenOSX has begun shipping a new version (2.5) of their
for Mac OS X.10.2.2+ product.
The package restores and adds new functionality to OpenOSX OpenWeb and OpenDB installations. OpenWeb 2.5, designed for Mac OS X 10.2.2 and higher, brings updated software, additional enhancements and applications, including optional support for the new and slightly experimental Apache 2 Web Server series, according to Jeshua Lacock, the owner of OpenOSX.
The product includes separate Apache 1.27 and 2.0.43 based packages for the list of software included. Both versions may be installed on the same system separately or simultaneously.
OpenWeb is based on Apache versions 1.3.27 and 2.0.43 with PHP 4.3.0RC2 (built as Apache 1 and 2 modules), Jakarta Tomcat 4.1.12 along with mod_jk 1.2.1 (also built as Apache 1 and 2 modules), Perl 5.8.0 with mod_perl versions versions 1.27 and 1.99_07, MySQL 3.23.53 with MyODBC 2.50.39, OpenSSL 0.9.6 with mod_ssl 2.8.12. A free PHP 4.3.0 update will be made available when 4.3.0 is finalized.
The OpenWeb package is available immediately for US$60; upgrades from previous versions of the product are $20. Limited installation support and documentation is included. Visit the OpenOSX Web site for details.
