The WebServe web server 2.0 is available for download:
http://www.pmoylan.org/pages/os2/webserve.html

"WebServe is an http daemon for OS/2 - or, if you like, a WWW server. It is not the only available web server, but this one aims to be a lightweight server. It implements the basic server functions, but tries not to overload the software with too many bells and whistles.


This program is free, and source code is included.

The features of WebServe include

  • Multiple domains can be hosted.
  • CGI applications can be anything that is executable from an OS/2 command shell: Rexx scripts, Perl scripts, *.exe files, and so on.
  • The "server-side include" feature supports the #include and #exec directives, although "#exec cmd" has been disabled on safety grounds.
  • Several different logging options are supported.
  • Remote configuration is supported. That is, you can run the server on one computer but control its properties and options from a different computer."

We continue to explore new ways to make the ArcaOS desktop experience more user-friendly and useful. To that end, we'd like to share some upcoming enhancements which should be available in the near future.

An update to the Arca Noae Removable Media Monitor widget for the XCenter is currently in testing which handles JFS, HPFS, and FAT32 media changes better, avoiding a trap which could otherwise occur when removing one device and inserting another without a proper eject operation.

We also have a component in testing now which transparently switches audio output from the built-in audio device to a USB audio device and back again when the USB device is attached or removed.

If you have a Brother laser printer, and have not been able to print to it, even via CUPS, we have some possibly good news for you: The brlaser CUPS driver package (RPM) has recently been updated to version 6.0.0, and our port should be moving from our experimental repository to the subscription repository very soon.

Don't have ArcaOS yet? Now is a great time to pick up a license or two and replace that aging Warp 4 or eComStation installation. Better yet, why not upgrade to newer hardware entirely, and install ArcaOS fresh? ArcaOS supports more modern hardware than any other OS/2 distribution available today.

You may view the latest post here:
https://www.arcanoae.com/arca-noae-progress-report-bits-and-pieces/

We at Arca Noae would like to thank our development partners, bww bitwise works, GmbH and Netlabs.org for their continued contributions to the OS/2 platform. Monetary contributions to offset their operating costs may be made either through Arca Noae at https://www.arcanoae.com or bww bitwise works, GmbH at http://www.bitwiseworks.com.

Best regards,
Arca Noae
