A security flaw is delaying the release of Lotus's Domino Go Webserver and Domino Go Webserver Pro 4.6.
The package is expected to roll out September 19, 11 days after its original shipment date, because of a "security-related bug" and the development of its subsequent fix. Lotus will also post the fix on its company Web page tomorrow for download by users of beta copies of the software. The IBM subsidiary said customers who have downloaded the software from the Web site have been notified.
As reported in July by CNET'S NEWS.COM, Lotus Domino Go Webserver Pro 4.6 includes a basic Web server, NetObjects' Fusion authority software, and Lotus BeanMachine for Java, which lets non-programmers create simple JavaBeans.
As reported last month, the price for Lotus's basic publishing Web server is $595, $200 less than originally announced. The cut is a direct result a $200 price reduction on Fusion, which NetObjects announced August 11.
Domino Go Webserver Pro is marketed to Web developers as a tool to quickly design, build, launch, and change publishing sites. Domino Go Webserver, a stripped-down version that does not include NetObjects Fusion and Lotus BeanMachine, will be available for $495.
The Web server has been branded as Lotus Domino, a signal that it is part of a broader product family that includes a mail server, collaborative applications, and Domino Server for enterprise uses.
Domino Go Webserver Pro is available for Windows 95, Windows NT, IBM's OS/2 and AIX, Sun Solaris, HP-UX, and IBM OS/390, with mid-1998 support for IBM OS/400.
