/n software Announces the Release of IPWorks SSL and IPWorks SSH Version 8.0 for Microsoft .NET and Java.

Introducing SSL and SSH security to the latest evolution of the highly anticipated IPWorks Version 8.0 product line.

December 18th 2007, Research Triangle Park, NC - /n software inc. (www.nsoftware.com), a leading provider of professional Internet development tools and components, today announced the release of both IPWorks SSL V8 and IPWorks SSH V8 for Microsoft .NET and Java today. The new Version 8.0 releases enhance the IPWorks core toolkit with advanced SSL and SSH security, and include major improvements to component usability, design and performance.

Building on the highly evolved IPWorks V8 core, both IPWorks SSL and IPWorks SSH V8 share the same core feature enhancements including streams, collections, 64-bit support, IPv6 addressing etc. IPWorks SSL also includes new SSL specific enhancements such as NTLM authentication, advanced digital certificate management, and performance enhancements such as optional SSL connection reuse.

IPWorks SSH V8 (formerly IPWorks S/Shell) has undergone a major redesign and is a departure from the previous IPWorks S/Shell base. Instead of various individual Secure Shell (SSH) enabled components found in the previous version, the IPWorks SSH package has been generalized with flexible new SSH Tunneling. In addition, performance has been optimized across components and a complete range of new SSH security features have been enabled.

In addition to the new features and performance enhancements, the new IPWorks product packages have been simplified, packing more value into each edition than ever before. The new V8 .NET Editions not only extend the previous version, but also include support for ASP.NET and the .NET Compact Framework. Likewise, the new Java Editions include both Java desktop and J2EE components optimized for server side development. Further consolidation of IPWorks will occur in the coming months with the release of a Win32 Edition supporting ActiveX, COM, Delphi, C++ Builder, C++ etc.

IPWorks SSL and IPWorks SSH V8 are available individually or packaged together as part of the /n software Red Carpet Subscription. Red Carpet Subscriptions include a license for all /n software products as well as free updates and upgrades to all products during the subscription term, per developer licensing, free email technical support, and discounted renewals.
