Progress ships on Linux
Demonstrating its commitment to the fast-growing Linux developer community, Progress Software has released a number of products, including Progress Version 8.3 and Progress Web Speed Version 2.1, on the Linux operating system.
The move is likely to position Progress well in what analyst IDC describes as the fastest-growing operating system on the market today.
`As the popularity of Linux continues to grow, the combination of Progress technologies and the 5000 business applications provided by our ISV partners are well positioned to meet the needs of this rapidly expanding market,' commented Graham Sowden, MD of Progress Australia.
The Progress Version 8.3 deployment products are available for Red Hat 6.0 Linux immediately, while Progress Version 9, WebSpeed Version 3, Progress Apptivity and SonicMQ deployment products should be available later in the year. http://www.progress.comNetRegistry prepares for global pushOne of Australia's largest independent Internet domain registrars, NetRegistry, is about to begin an assault on the global domain name market, offering its services worldwide.
