WebSTAR 4.2 Optimized for G4s -- StarNine Technologies has unveiled WebSTAR Server Suite 4.2, the latest version of its integrated collection of Internet servers. The collection includes Web, email, FTP and proxy servers as well as database publishing and site searching capabilities. WebSTAR 4.2's primary advance is that the main WebSTAR application and the majority of its components have been optimized for the PowerPC G4 and its Velocity Engine, enabling WebSTAR to process requests faster, especially for dynamically generated material. WebSTAR 4.2 also includes bug fixes and enhancements unrelated to G4 systems - particularly in its email, Lasso Web Publisher, and search components - making the upgrade valuable to all version 4.x owners. Version 4.2 is a free upgrade for owners of WebSTAR 4.x; otherwise, WebSTAR Server Suite is $600 with educational, upgrade, and volume discounts available. [GD]
Open Links from Mail in the Background
Tired of switching back and forth between Mail and your Web browser every time you click a link in a TidBITS issue or other email message? Here's an easy workaround. Hold down the Command key when you click links in Mail to open them in your browser without switching away from Mail. That way you can keep reading in Mail and then read all the Web pages you've opened.
