Fort Lauderdale, FL – December 2, 2004 – OmniPilot Software, Inc., a global
provider of integrated management software, officially ships Lasso
Professional Server 8 (LP8) today. Lasso Professional Server 8 is the
premier tool for developing, serving and managing data-driven web
applications, and offers a “build once, deploy anywhere” approach for
developers who demand an easy-to-use, yet powerful development environment.

According to Chad Roll, chief operations officer (COO), “Lasso Professional
Server continues to optimize the user experience with dramatically enhanced
performance and security. LP8 allows developers to quickly and securely
develop applications with any database on virtually any platform – without
a degree in programming – and with far less code than ASP, PHP, JSP or
ColdFusion. LP8 is 100% backward compatible with LP7 and it is an
incredible step forward in Lasso’s product evolution.”

One license of this major upgrade is FREE for all Lasso Professional
Alliance (LPA) members. New users can purchase Lasso Professional Server 8
for only $649 while current LP7 users who wish to upgrade to LP8 can do so
for only $349. Users of LP3 – LP6 can upgrade to LP8 for only $399.

The top new features include:

* New multi-site features allow each site on a server to be isolated in
it’s own process and configured with unique data sources, security
settings, global variables, and more. This leads to enhanced site
stability, great for ISPs and servers that host sites for multiple clients.

* On-demand tag loading makes it easy to add or update tags while Lasso is
running. LassoApps and tag libraries can be served directly from the Lasso
Professional application folder.

* POP support allows email to be downloaded directly from email servers
into Lasso. Improved SMTP support better handles the sending of large
volumes of mail and automatically supports multi-part HTML messages.

* Includes enterprise features such as a built-in SOAP client makes which
makes calling remote procedures as easy as calling local custom tags,
JavaBeans support, and a J2EE servlet Web server connector.

* Numerous other features make Lasso easier to use including tag
namespaces, new compound data types like stacks, queues, sets, and lists,
improved file upload tags, new encryption tags, new parameter tag syntax,
deprecated tag logging, and more
