In its first product release since merging with Allaire, Macromedia on Monday unveiled new Web server software. ColdFusion Server 5, which allows Web developers to create applications and content, offers features such as a new integrated charting engine and advanced full-text searching. In January, San Francisco-based Macromedia announced a $360 million merger with Newton, Mass.-based Allaire, which builds Web application server software.
ColdFusion Server 5 was developed by Allaire and includes software from Macromedia. The combined product enables people to embed code within their Web pages with Allaire's technology while building graphics with Macromedia's tools. Windows, Linux and HP-UX versions are set for release in June. A Solaris version is expected in August. Prices ranges from $1,295 to $4,995.
