REVISION 2 OF WEB FM 4.0 NOW AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD OR PURCHASE ADDS
SUPPORT FOR W*API 1.3 VIRTUAL HOSTS AND VARIABLE ROOT DIRECTORIES
Palo Alto, CA -- June 3, 1998 -- WEB FM 4.0 is a plug-in to popular Mac OS
web servers such as WebSTAR, Quid Pro Quo, WebTEN, and AppleShare IP that
enables FileMaker Pro developers to quickly and easily build wicked fast,
truly dynamic and interactive online database applications. WEB FM is
optimized for top performance, and version 4.0 introduced support for
easy-to-use, Internet standard Template files void of confusing,
incompatible, and proprietary markup [/tags].
VIRTUAL DOMAIN SUPPORT
Revision 2 of WEB FM 4.0 adds support for W*API 1.3 Virtual Hosting and
multiple root web server directories. "With Virtual Host support in WEB FM
4.0v2, serving the right information has just become easier." said Chris
Kilbourn, President digital.forest, Inc. "We can now offer WEB FM hosting
on dedicated servers."
Previously, defining web server Virtual Domains with different root
directories (or selecting a root directory that's not the application
directory) could break the ability of database CGI's to locate Template or
Format files on disk. WEB FM 4.0v2, when used with a Mac web server
supporting W*API 1.3, now uses the proper root directory when locating
Template files for its context-sensitive [field name] token support and its
breakthrough, highly intelligent parsing algorithm that automatically
selects pop-up/pull-down menu items and automatically checks radio button
or checkbox elements using database record information.
Revision 2 of WEB FM 4.0 includes bug fixes and improved compatibility with
68K Mac servers, MSIE 3.0, SSI Processors like NetCloak 2.5, and web sites
using HTTP cookies.
UPDATED FM@ILER 1.1
Revision 2 of WEB FM 4.0 includes an updated FREE version of FM@iler 1.1
for FileMaker Pro. FM@iler 1.1 is a convenient $195 application for
automated mailing list archivals to a searchable web database.
