StarNine Announces WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0 -- StarNine Technologies has announced WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0, the next version of its WebSTAR Internet server package. WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0 will include a new integrated email server (supporting SMTP, POP, and IMAP) and the capability to publish FileMaker and ODBC databases to the Web, in addition to WebSTAR's core suite of Web, FTP, and proxy servers. WebSTAR's database publishing capabilities are based on Blue World Communications' forthcoming Lasso Web Publisher 3.5, a subset of the full Lasso 3.5 Web Data Engine that enables turn-key publishing of database-driven Web resources. WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0 also integrates SSL encryption for sites conducting net commerce, supporting more certificate formats and encryption technologies (including Server Gated Cryptography). In addition, a redesigned intelligent caching system and other low-level enhancements should offer substantial performance improvements - according to StarNine, overall performance should be double that of current versions of WebSTAR, with data transfer rates as much as five times faster. WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0 should be available this June; pricing details haven't been finalized. [GD]
