LOS ANGELES, California – 29 January, 2007 Fourth World today
released 4W WebMerge 2.4.2, an update to its popular tool for Mac OS
and Windows that generates static Web pages from database or
spreadsheet data. The new Mac version is now available in Universal
Binary format for native performance on new Intel-based Macs as well
as older PowerPC models.
WebMerge works with any database or spreadsheet that exports in
tab-delimited, merge, or other tabular formats, including FileMaker
Pro, Microsoft Access, and most affiliate data feeds. Using simple
tags in templates created with any HTML authoring tool, WebMerge
makes a new page from the data in each record of the exported file.
WebMerge can also create index pages with links to each of the detail
pages. Generated pages can be hosted on any Web server without the
need for a specialized database hosting solution.
“Apple’s new Intel-based Macs are blazing fast, and we’re very happy
to take full advantage of their performance with this new Universal
Binary version of WebMerge,” said Richard Gaskin, president of Fourth
World Media Corporation. “Our testers reported reported native
performance several times faster than previous versions, and
considering how much fan mail older versions have had about its speed
we’re very happy with this update.”
WebMerge 2.4.2 is available in a free download at the publisher’s Web
WebMerge can be used for free to generate up to 20 pages and has all
features enabled with no time limit. Registered copies of WebMerge
have no limit on the number of pages that can be generated.
A single-user license costs US$99, with discounts available for
multi-license purchases. Registered users of earlier versions get
this upgrade at no charge.
WebMerge requires Windows 98/NT/2000/ME/XP or Mac OS X 10.2 or later,
64 MB total system memory, and 9 MB disk space.
