WebSTAR 3.0 in Public Beta

StarNine Technologies has posted the public beta of WebSTAR 3.0, the latest version of their popular Macintosh Web server. Major new features include full support for the HTTP 1.1 protocol, support for single-link multihoming using Open Transport 1.3, an integrated FTP server, an integrated caching proxy server for increased security and performance, a built-in search engine based on Apple’s V-Twin technology, and a new TCP/IP-based WebSTAR Admin application. The 9.7 MB download is accessible after you subscribe to the WebSTAR Beta mailing list. Note that the FTP URL provided works only in Netscape Navigator without editing; since Internet Explorer 4.0 (and Anarchie and Fetch) honor the default directory set by StarNine’s FTP server, you’ll have to copy the URL and remove the /pub directory from the end to download using those programs.
