After three years in development, Macrobyte Resources is pleased to
announce the release of Conversant 1.0b1.
What is it?
Conversant is a flexible web application development platform,
with emphasis on groupware applications such as Intranets,
project work groups and collaborative learning environments. It
provides exceptional integration of web, email, and even
news-based (NNTP) collaboration.
Secure Conversant Servers
Features of the standard version of Conversant include: membership
management, discussion groups, news sites and weblogs, a flexible
search engine, database customization, and more. Conversant can
also be easily enhanced and customized by both developers and site
Conversant runs on Windows (95/98/NT/2000/XP), Mac OS X and Mac
OS 9 on top of the UserLand Frontier(tm) or Radio UserLand(tm)
Conversant integrates transparently with TLS, Macrobyte's
security module for Frontier and Radio, to instantly provide all
of your site content over https. Securing your Conversant-based
sites is as easy as installing TLS (sold separately) and
changing a single preference in Conversant.

Hundreds of websites are already using Conversant through Macrobyte
Resources consulting and hosting services, including the popular
"Free-Conversant" service (http://www.free-conversant.com/), but this is
the first public release of Conversant.
