IPWorks for Kylix announced at LinuxWorld Expo, 2001.

The most comprehensive suite of Internet Programming Components now available natively for the Linux Platform.

New York City, January 31st, 2001, LinuxWorld Expo 2001 - /n software (www.nsoftware.com) today announced two native Linux versions of its award-winning IPWorks Internet Toolkit: IPWorks C++ Edition for Linux and IPWorks Kylix Edition for Linux.

Initially introduced in 1995, IPWorks is actively used by most Fortune 500 and Global 2000 companies, as well as thousands of independent software developers worldwide. The product eliminates much of the complexity of developing connected applications, by providing easy-to-use programmable components that facilitate tasks such as sending email, transferring files, browsing the web, accessing directories, etc..

"IPWorks is an industrial-strength package, result of more than five years of research and development and active testing in the marketplace," says Gent Hito, President and CEO of /n software, "Tens of thousands of applications, including mission-critical software, rely on IPWorks as a foundation for their communication needs. As the first RAD tool for Linux, Borland's Kylix provides the perfect vehicle for delivering the power of IPWorks to Linux developers."

"We are very pleased with the enthusiastic response from third party vendors porting their components to Kylix," says David Intersimone, Vice President of Developer Relations, Borland Software Corporation, "Having component packages like IPWorks available in Kylix provides Linux users with components for building Internet applications with full commercial support from a company whose core business is Internet software development."

IPWorks contains easy-to-use high level programmable components such as interfaces to Internet Mail and Usenet News, as well as powerful TCP/IP programming tools used to build generic clients and servers. All components have simple, yet powerful, interfaces that shield developers from the complexity of TCP/IP programming. Corporate developers will find the features they need to quickly enable their applications to participate in a TCP/IP network without steep learning curves. Internet developers will find fast components with small footprints that provide excellent performance over dialup links.

IPWorks is available in several editions for several development environments, technologies, and platforms. These include COM Libraries, ActiveX Controls, C++ Classes, C Libraries, Native VCLs, Pure Java Beans, and now CLX Components for Kylix. Operating Systems supported natively include all versions of Windows (including Windows CE), and now Linux. A Solaris port is under the final stages of development, and will be released in the near future.

Live demos of IPWorks Kylix Edition will be shown in the /n software booth located in the Borland Partner Pavillion at LinuxWorld. Public beta releases of both IPWorks Kylix Edition for Linux and IPWorks C++ Edition for Linux will be available for download from the company website at www.nsoftware.com soon thereafter.
