Santa Barbara, CA, March 26, 2004. iTools 7.3, heralded for its simplicity and power, saves webmasters time and money. Webmasters can setup unlimited web sites on Mac OS X, and let each client administer his own domain. iTools 7's secure, domain-specific remote Apache administration, using a 5th generation suite of tools, makes Apache on Mac OS X 10.3, the easiest Apache in the world to administer. The new iTools 7.3, released today, adds features, performance enhancements, and the latest Apache 2. Apache 2.0.49, released last week, is considered the best Apache version available.
Added to the basic ability to set up an Apache web server, a DNS server or an FTP server, iTools now includes tools for setting up community discussion boards, displaying photos on the web, starting your own blog, and creating web portals to enable organizations & communities to access information, share calendars, and collaborate efficiently, all in the context of a browser-based environment. The add-on utilities now include: phpBB, Gallery, b2++, and PHP-Nuke.
iTools 7.3 adds a ten-fold performance improvement to the desktop iTools Manager. Other enhancements include the optional use of encryption during browser-based configuration sessions, the flexibility to restart various server daemons either manually or automatically upon configuration changes, FastCGI support, the ability to use the iTools GUI to change the order that virtual hosts are loaded by Apache, new log viewing options, and extensions to the automatic system update facility to include add-on packages. The documentation, as well, has been enhanced and the open-source add-on packages have been updated to the latest available versions (PHP 4.3.4, MySQL 4.0.18, Tomcat 5.0.19, ht://Dig 3.1.6). This release also includes a number of minor bug fixes.
iTools 7.3 is $349. A companion mail server and list server, Post.Office, is available in special iTools bundles. iTools 7.3 is a free upgrade for existing iTools 7 customers. iTools can be used with either Panther (Mac OS X 10.3) or Jaguar (Mac OS X 10.2) and works equally well on Mac OS X 'client' or Mac OS X Server.
