Chuck Shotton Resurrecting MacHTTP -- Chuck Shotton, the man who created the first Web server for the Macintosh, is resurrecting that early program, MacHTTP, and is once again making it available to the Macintosh community. As the Internet's popularity grew, Chuck built on his experience with MacHTTP and was responsible for large parts of StarNine's WebSTAR (now owned by 4D). He left StarNine some time ago to focus on his own company, BIAP Systems, whose flagship product is the automated information retrieval program GOtrieve. Now, however, he has posted a minor update to MacHTTP, addressing a few performance issues and redoing the license to allow for free non-commercial use. MacHTTP isn't a high-performance Web server and it lacks the high-end features from products like WebSTAR and Tenon's WebTen. But hey, it's free, most people don't need serious performance, and it's great to have an old friend that once won Apple's Cool Tools award rejoining the community. Chuck is even considering making MacHTTP open source. You can download a copy of MacHTTP 2.3 (498K) at the MacHTTP.Org Web site. [ACE]
