A suite of tools to dramatically simplify Apache configuration &
maintenance extended to support Apple’s new server OS

Santa Barbara, CA, July 17, 2001. Tenon Intersystems today announced a new
upcoming version of its web server tool suite, iTools 6.1 for Mac OS X 10.0
and Mac OS X Server 10.0. Tenon’s new iTools 6.1 will include an Aqua GUI
that enables webmasters to set up and configure Apache directly on Apple’s
Aqua desktop. The new GUI co-exists with Tenon’s secure, remote,
browser-based administration, enabling webmasters to seamlessly switch
between desktop management and anytime, anywhere browser-based control.

Using Apple’s bundled Apache as a point of departure and incorporating the
latest open source protocol implementations of Apache, DNS, FTP and
sendmail, iTools extends Mac OS X client and server platforms with a rich
set of internet services. Tenon’s iTools web server package is mature,
integrated and scalable. The package lets Macintosh webmasters realize the
full strength of an Apache-based web server, and at the same time have all
the advantages of an easy-to-use web server. “”””””””With iTools’ ease-of-use,
top-performance and extensibility, coupled with the strength of Apple’s new
OS, we are seeing Macintosh webmasters rapidly transitioning from Mac OS to
Mac OS X””””””””, said Tenon’s President, Anita Holmgren.

Tenon’s iTools includes SSL for secure eCommerce transactions, FastCGI and
mod_Perl for top CGI performance, an integrated, state-of-the-art caching
proxy server that augments Apache’s built-in proxy services, integrated
domain name services, integrated multidomain ftp services, integrated
logging, a high-performance Sherlock-savvy search engine. Also included is
support for Java servlets and Java Server Pages with Tomcat, support for
Active Server Pages with Halcyon’s iASP, and mod_dav to support the
transition from a read-only web to a collaborative, writable web via WebDAV
clients. In addition, a powerful WEBmail tool turns Mac OS X into a
complete POP3 and IMAP4 mail server and a fully customizable, anytime,
anywhere ‘hotmail’ style mail client.

Tenon’s iTools 6.1 is a free upgrade for all iTools 6.0 customers. It will
be available as a public beta by the end of July. The price is $399, $299
(educational and sidegrades), and $99 (upgrade from iTools 5.0 ).
