WebTen 4.0 for MacOS X Server
A web server that takes advantage of the power of Apple’s next-generation OS
Santa Barbara, CA, January 4, 1999. Tenon Intersystems today
announced WebTen 4.0, a version of its industrial-strength,
high-performance Apache-based Web server for MacOS X Server. WebTen
incorporates the highly-acclaimed Apache web server software
developed by the Apache Group. Apache is well-known as stable,
full-strength, feature-rich web server software used on almost two
million machines worldwide. Tenon has taken this mature, integrated,
scalable software and extended it with performance enhancements and
Macintosh-specific features to make WebTen’s Apache the fastest and
easiest-to-use Apache in the world. On MacOS X Server, WebTen extends
the open source Apache with a point & click interface, internet
object caching and security to provide an ideal foundation for
WebTen 4.0 is downloadable today for use with Rhapsody DR2 and will
be available in the future on CD for $495 when MacOS X Server ships.
Until MacOS X Server ships, WebTen 4.0 will be available for $299.
While taking advantage of MacOS X Server’s preemptive multitasking,
memory protection and advanced virtual memory, WebTen 4.0 gives
Macintosh users the same advanced features of WebTen 2.1 (for MacOS).
WebTen’s caching conforms to the Internet Caching Protocol to support
cascading proxies. The SSL 3.0 supports multiple certificates on a
single host. A high-performance, internet-standard search engine,
ht://Dig, is included. A downloadable 14-day demo is available at:
Both WebTen for MacOS and WebTen for MacOS X Server includes the
ability to dynamically add new Apache modules. Macintosh web plug-in
developers are encouraged to use Tenon’s WebTen SDK to create Apache
modules that will work not only with WebTen on MacOS, WebTen on MacOS
X Server and MacOS X, but also with the open source Apache included
with MacOS X Server, MkLinux and Linux for PPC. “Transitioning
WebSTAR-style plug-ins to Apache modules will expand Macintosh
plug-in developer’s reach to the almost two million Apache web
servers on other platforms,” said Steve Holmgren, Tenon’s President.
The WebTen SDK is designed to work with Metrowerks’ CodeWarrior or
Tenon’s own MachTen UNIX. It is freely available and downloadable
Tenon Intersystems is a leader in high-performance networking.

G3-based machines, is providing the framework for world-class
