Maxum Development’s NetCloak, the dynamic web server plug-in, will soon be available for Mac OS X, according to President John O’Fallon. The X version (3.2) is expected to be released this summer and will run as an Apache module under OS X Server as well as under WebStar V, 4D’s Mac-based Web server.
Version 3.2 will also offer enhancements that make NetCloak even easier to use, including a set of Adobe GoLive extensions and updates to the existing BBEdit, DreamWeaver, and TagBuilder drag-and-drop page building utilities, he added.
NetCloak is a plug-in or CGI that works with all Mac-based Web servers, including WebTen and AppleShare/IP, as well as WebSTAR. Its functions are all implemented by HTML-like commands. What’s more, there’s a Pro version that adds forms processing and e-mail integration.
“WebStar has always been the server of choice for NetCloak developers,” O’Fallon said. “We expect WebStar V running on OS X to continue to be the leading platform for Mac-based servers, and we’ll make sure that NetCloak is optimized for it.”
Complete information about NetCloak, including a fully functional trial of the current version, is available at the
product Web site.
