San Francisco, CA, February 12th, 2002, VSLive! 2002 - /n software inc. (www.nsoftware.com) announced the release of IPWorks Internet Toolkit for the Microsoft .NET Framework. IPWorks for Microsoft .NET is a special version of IPWorks written entirely in managed code, specifically for the Microsoft .NET Framework. This release includes more than 30 fully managed components for Internet development built for the Microsoft .NET Framework.

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, consuming XML Web services, parsing XML documents, etc.

"IPWorks is an industrial-strength package, the result of more than seven 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. The new IPWorks for Microsoft .NET builds upon this foundation and experience, and provides a comprehensive, fully-managed package, specifically tailored for the Microsoft .NET Framework."

"Microsoft is excited that /n software has released its IPWorks Internet Toolkit for the Microsoft .NET Framework" said John Montgomery, group product manager for the Developer and Platform Evangelism Division at Microsoft Corp. "The IPWorks suite of components consists of more than 30 Internet components, expanding the possibilities for developers who use the Microsoft .NET Framework"

IPWorks for Microsoft .NET 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. In addition, the interfaces of the IPWorks components for Microsoft .NET have remained identical to the IPWorks interfaces across platforms and IDE's drastically reducing development time when porting code.

All IPWorks 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 both dialup and broadband connections.

IPWorks Version 5 is available in more than 20 editions, targeting various platforms, IDEs, and component technologies. IPWorks provides a complete solution, and its excellent 5+ year track record means you get a robust enterprise-class toolset backed by professional technical support.
