Access OpenType Font Features

OpenType fonts (.otf) often have special features, such as swashes and alternate characters, that are accessible in any app that uses the OS X font panel, including Pages and TextEdit. To access them, type and select your text, press Command-T to open the font panel, and then choose Typography from the Actions pop-up menu. That shows the Typography panel, where you can toggle available options for the font and characters you've selected.

WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0 Adds Email, Performance, and More

WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0 Adds Email, Performance, and More -- StarNine Technologies has shipped WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0, the latest version of its widely used Internet server software, positioning it as an integrated, easy-to-use solution for common Internet services. WebSTAR 3.0 added several features to WebSTAR's traditional Web-serving toolkit (including a proxy server and a built-in FTP server). WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0 expands that range by rolling in feature-rich SMTP, POP, and IMAP mail servers (with, naturally, Web-based email access) and new tools based on Blue World's Lasso middleware technology for serving information from FileMaker or ODBC databases. WebSTAR Server Suite 4.0 also integrates SSL encryption and advanced security options directly into the main application and includes numerous under-the-hood performance enhancements that can double WebSTAR's serving capability and significantly reduce connection latency.
