USERLAND SHIPS FRONTIER 6.0, THE FIRST WORKGROUP WEB SERVER
BURLINGAME, CA (April 4, 1999): UserLand Software announced today
that it had shipped version 6.0 of UserLand Frontier, the
market-leading content management system for Windows and Macintosh OS.
“When you add up all the new features, UserLand Frontier 6.0 is the
first Workgroup Web Server,” said Dave Winer, 43, president of
UserLand Software. “It brings powerful high-end features such as
membership, preferences, per-user storage, discussion groups,
searching, calendars, news sites, subscriptions and XML-based
distributed computing to popular user-oriented operating systems.”
“Our goal with UserLand Frontier 6.0 was to complete the workgroup
web server vision we re-launched the company with in 1996. That’s now
accomplished. Our next goal, for 6.0.x, and 6.1, is to build out
Frontier as the ideal network-based writing environment. Our team’s
experience with structured writing environments, such as MORE and
ThinkTank, will be applied to web writing. This is where we expect,
for the first time, our products to be highly relevant not only to
system managers and developers, but to managers, writers and
scholars,” Winer continued.
“Frontier 6.0 is an important step in our strategy to build
userland.com into a leading portal for thinkers, developers and word
people. By distributing the servers as a separate offering we’re in a
unique position to distribute our web presence. We will be able to
achieve results that other leading portals won’t because we can
leverage our authorship of the market-leading content management
software,” he concluded.
UserLand Frontier 6.0 is fully compatible with industry standards
such as Microsoft’s Common Object Model (COM), Apple Events, TCP,
HTTP, XML-RPC and other Internet standards.
