[ANN] Swazoo web server 2.0 released

Janko Mivšek
Dear Smalltalkers,

Swazoo 2.0 is here, on Squeak and VisualWorks simultaneously while
Dolphin and Smalltalk/X ports are already on the way.

What's new in 2.0 since 1.0?

- input streaming for uploading large files
- output streaming (chunking) for sending large files,support for Comet
- improved request framework
- Sport portability layer introduced for easier porting
- improved exception handling
- reorganization of packages
- extensive SUnit tests, all pass

Download and installation instructions are on Swazoo's website
http://www.swazoo.org, where you can find also short description of
streaming at http://www.swazoo.org/streaming.html where a short
benchmark of throughput is also present.

A few words about it: Swazoo (Smalltalk Web Application Zoo) is an open
source, vendor agnostic, dialect neutral Smalltalk HTTP server with
resource and web request resolution framework, a fruit of a first Camp
Smalltalk 2000 in San Diego. Its main features are:

   * virtual site support
   * clean web request resolution framework
   * static web serving
   * input streaming of HTTP requests (for large file uploads)
   * output streaming (chunking) for responding large files and for Comet

I hope that you will find Swazoo useful and therefore help us achieve
its main goal: to become a web server of choice for all dialects of

Best regards
