Web and e-commerce tools developer
MDG Computer Services Inc. has released Web Server 4D/eCommerce 4.0r13, a new version of its Web server and e-commerce software that offers several new features, including auto-publishing through Froogle, Google’s searchable index of products available for sale through Web retailers. In addition, this update includes an option for automatically adding virtual domains to Google, automatic robots.txt file creation for search engine crawlers and changes to server cookies that enable you to keep them from being sent to search engines.
This is a free update for owners of Web Server 4D/eCommerce 4.x, except for the Froogle feature, which is US$50. MGD’s Web site lists upgrade pricing for earlier versions. Web Server 4D by itself is $295; with the eCommerce add-on, prices start at $595 for a single store. MDG’s Web site does not list the minimum version of Mac OS X required.
