Jul 02, 2003
All Five Editions Enhanced

Aliso Viejo, CA -- The Internet and Software Solutions Division of Smith Micro Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMSI), a developer and marketer of software solutions for the Internet development tools market, today announced that Version 5.1 of the WebDNA™ development tools is now available.

The various WebDNA editions are sophisticated eBusiness rapid development and deployment products. The five editions, Developer, Partner, Commerce, Intranet, and Enterprise, comprise the WebDNA family. Each are tiered for functionality and priced to closely match specific developer requirements.

In addition to the benefits provided by the Version 5.0 release earlier this year, such as XML document parsing and validation, XSLT translation, the Web Services Wizard, ISP Sandbox and support for WSDL, XML, and XSLT, this new enhanced update includes a Java editor for the WebDNA Lab, an improved Content Management System, and numerous updates that result in a faster, higher performance product.

"The release of WebDNA 5.1 demonstrates our continued commitment to the development community," said Chris Lippincott, General Manager of the Internet and Software Solutions business unit at Smith Micro. "Version 5.1 builds upon the foundation established by Version 5.0 for broadening the ability of WebDNA to support a high level of secure, multi-site ISP use and adoption into organizations where multiple business departments must have input into website modifications," he concludes.

WebDNA has generated a strong following among solution providers and website developers due to its ease of use, rapid learning curve, flexibility, performance and its support of multiple platforms including Windows, Mac, Unix, Linux and Solaris. Based on WebDNA's successful track record in the development community, Smith Micro upgraded the technology to a large degree from the feedback received from its development community and customer base.
