For immediate release:
http://tcl.apache.org/ August 2002. The Apache Software Foundation's
Tcl group and Netcetera AG are proud to announce the transfer of the
Websh technology to the Apache Software Foundation, and the release of
Websh is a mature, robust, and very full-featured application
programming framework. Websh is versatile and handles everything from
HTML generation to data-base driven one-to-one page customization.
Netcetera AG has been using it for years for many of their customer
projects, which typically are E-commerce shops or electronic banking
applications. Websh is extensible and portable, and its comprehensive
set of commands is quickly learned.
Version 3.5.0 maintains the same high standards of quality, and is
primarily a refinement on the proven base which has been very
successful to date. The main changes from earlier version include a
production release of Websh's Apache module mod_websh, and some
streamlining of the API.
The Apache Tcl group is pleased to welcome this addition to our group
of Tcl products for the web. "It adds a new dimension to our current
offerings" stated David Welton, Apache Tcl coordinator, "Websh has
some great code that we are happy to see available as part of our
project." "As heavy users of Apache software in virtually all of our
customer products, we're happy to contribute our Websh framework to
the Apache Tcl group" added Netcetera's Ronnie Brunner, responsible
for the integration of Websh into Tcl Apache.
