As you probably know, the PowerPage has been served by 4D WebSTAR since we moved from serving on a Windows platform over three years ago. We were excited to hear that 4D has announced version 5.2 of the popular Web server software.

WebSTAR 5.2 no includes an easy to use, fast Mail server. The new Mail server in v5.2 has an architecture designed for high performance and robust scalability, with security and anti-spam features, anti-virus support, and a mail migration tool for WebSTAR v4 administrators.

The new 4D WebSTAR Server Suite V takes advantage of Mac OS X’s multiprocessor support, preemptive multitasking and faster networking, without sacrificing WebSTAR’s stellar reputation for ease-of-use and security. Beyond amazing speed increases in the web server itself, an overhaul of the caching sub-system provides even more performance improvements for the entire server suite. The completely redesigned Administration architecture provides a high level of flexibility with Delegatable Authority, allowing administrative permissions to be individually granted for virtual host administrators. The Admin Server is now separate from the Web Server, to monitor servers and maximize uptime. The new Admin Client is written in 100% Java, giving the Mac OS X look-and-feel, while allowing remote administration from any platform that supports Java. The Admin Client also now communicates via SSL for more secure administration. Overall Security now takes advantage of reusable realm security settings, and allow/deny security settings.
