MGI 1.6d


Raleigh, North Carolina: PagePlanet Software, Inc. is pleased to announce
the release of MGI 1.6d, its plug-in to 4D's award-winning web server for
the Macintosh, WebSTAR. This release represents several major milestones in
the development of MGI over the past four years.

MGI 1.6d includes full and seamless support for the Accesspoint system of
credit card verification and real-time credit card processing. PagePlanet
Software, Inc. is proud to be associated with Accesspoint, a
California-based corporation founded in 1995. Using the custom-constructed,
Accesspoint-enabled tags of the MGI shopping basket suite, a web designer
can now integrate a web site from product selection to credit card
transaction deposit using a single piece of software designed specifically
for that purpose.

In addition, Accesspoint is capable of providing merchant services for
on-line businesses that are otherwise unable to obtain such services
through their local bank while also keeping the total cost of the entire
system comparable to those costs one would expect from a bank. MGI clients
can also use Accesspoint to accept check payments on-line just as they
would credit card transactions.

"In establishing this relationship between PagePlanet Software and
Accesspoint, we hope to bring equitable and fair access to credit card and
check processing so that small businesses can afford to get on the web with
fully-enabled, e-commerce sites. We recognized that too many companies who
attempt to act as credit card processors not only impose significant
technical barriers, but also make the task cost prohibitive with enormous
set-up expenses, excessive monthly charges, and exhorbatant
percentage-of-sale fees; Accesspoint eliminates all those barriers," said
Valerie Crisp, president of PagePlanet Software, Inc.

In addition, PagePlanet Software, Inc. is in final development to provide
credit card processing services to clients in Australia via the eSec
Limited system. The technical details will be finalized early next week and
the product add-on to MGI made available for immediate use. The eSec system
will allow for seamless integration of commerce-enabled shopping baskets
for businesses located in Australia, enabling them to transact real-time
credit card processing with local Australian banks in Australian currency.

The current MGI release also includes full support for quoted printable and
encoded word (8-bit) formats in the mgiPOP tag, a means by which hosting
services or individual businesses can provide their users with web-based
email. "mgiPOP, whether in client mode or window mode, can now be used
effectively by our European clients in their native languages," said Steve
Crisp, general manager for PagePlanet Software, Inc. "This advance opens up
the world of web-based email to many potential clients who had no such
option unless they were willing to communicate in English."

MGI 1.6d will also be the last release of MGI in the 1.X series.
Development of MGI 2.0 is progressing on schedule and is slated for release
in the fourth quarter of 2000. MGI 2.0 will include major advances in all
processes including database integration, ODBC capability, and will run on
both the Macintosh and NT platforms without any code adaptation whatsoever
on the part of the web designer. PagePlanet Software, Inc. is also firmly
committed to porting MGI 2.0 to run under Mac OS X upon its release as a
commercial product as well as adaptation to run under WebStar 5.0 upon its

About MGI: MGI was developed over four years to satisfy the needs of over
1600 web hosting clients using PagePlop Web Hosting Service of Raleigh,
North Carolina. The goals of MGI are ease of use even for those without a
bit of programming or scripting background (using an intuitive,
English-based tag structure,) being fully secure from intrusion, robust to
handle the needs of any small to medium-sized business, and scalable enough
to used as the web site grows. MGI is ideal for not only intranet use in
schools and businesses, but also internet integration in a single-domain or
multi-domain environment as seen at an ISP. All aspects of MGI are fully
tested under live-hosting conditions with operating web sites before being
released to the public. MGI is used by thousands of web sites at ISPs
located world-wide, major universities, and Fortune 500 companies.

About PagePlanet Software, Inc.: PagePlanet Software, Inc. is a privately
held corporation formed in 1998 to further develop and market MGI. The
company was founded on the principles that software needs to be designed
for use by those with minimal experience, yet designed with enough
flexibility to satisfy the needs of experienced programmers -- and
developed driven by the needs of the end user rather than the comfort of
the product's programmers. PagePlanet Software also firmly believes in
standing behind its products with world-class customer service and support
as well as a license policy that makes sense, i.e., 90-day money-back
guarantee, no-penalty upgrade path, and an allowable-use policy that takes
into consideration exceptions to the rules and emergency use under
unforseen circumstances.
