Pop-up URL menu fix
April 3, 2001 - If you've ever used the URL pop-up menu and entered _blank in the Target field to have the destination pages open in a new window, you may have noticed that the resulting pages did not have an address bar, button bar, scrolls, etc. I found this incredibly frustrating. But notice that the menu on my home page works beautifully. That's due to Rob Keniger's brilliant fix. This is not an official Adobe fix though, so you use it at your own risk. You can download the fix here, both a pre-fixed file and the do-it-yourself directions. (If you're on Windows and do not have StuffIt Expander, now's the time to get it, so you can open this file.)
4D Bundles GoLive 5.0 to Offer Complete Dynamic Web Server SolutionsApril 2, 2001 - 4D SA announced today that it has bundled GoLive 5.0 with its 4D Developer Edition, 4D Server Standard, and 4D Server Developer Editions, and a new product called 4D Web Edition.
This provides complete Web Server Solutions that enable the integration of dynamic database content into your GoLive-created site. If I understand correctly, 4D (v6.7.1) includes an Extend Script that gives you a 4D tab in the Objects palette. So to integrate a 4D database into your site, you'll get 4D Web Edition 6.7.1, which sells for US $449. To actually serve the database, one of the other packages are needed. (I am checking on this.)
Netscape 6 Fix Released
March 26, 2001 - As every web designer knows, Netscape 6 wreaked havoc on web sites as it took an evolutionary direction to comply with W3C standards.

This issue is now addressed with the release of a new extension that provides a new command, Make NN6 Compatible, which becomes available under the Special menu. You can download the extension and instructions from the following locations at Adobe:
4D is the publisher of the 4th Dimension RAD/RDBMS Environment and WebSTAR Server Suite. More info at their site.
