4D Inc., publishers of the 4th Dimension RAD/RDBMS Environment and 4D WebSTAR Server Suite, have announced 4D WebSTAR 5.0.1, the first update to 4D WebSTAR Server Suite V.
WebSTAR now has a built-in update notification feature, 4D Connect plug-in, performance boosts to the HTTP server, FTP server and Search plug-in, and several other improvements, according to company spokesperson Naomi Pearce. Included in the 4D WebSTAR 5.0.1 update are a distribution of PHP 4.0.6 as a CGI, a menu option for update notification in the WebSTAR Monitor, and a new plug-in for connectivity to 4D RDBMS. HTTP, FTP and Search are all faster, and technical documentation has been updated, she added.
The WebSTAR Server Suite features Web, FTP, Mail and Proxy servers integrated in a modular application, with secure, IP-based remote administration. WebSTAR V will take advantage of the speed and stability of Mac OS X, according to Brendan Coveney, 4D president and CEO. 4D 6.7 offers a more flexible development environment, an enriched set of Web development tools and greater support for larger database development, he added.
