iTools Updated With Apache 2 Support

Tenon Intersystems has released an update for iTools, bringing it to version 7.3. iTools is a server tool suite designed for Web developers needing to configure Apache directly from the Aqua desktop. The update features support for Apache version 2 and improved iTools Manager performance. According to Tenon Intersystems:

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.

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.

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.
