What We're Working On
=========================================

- New Site Applications (Perl, ImageMagick, SpamAssassin) -

Our Development Department has been hard at work on new software to be
integrated with your control panel (Site Manager), for instant
installation.

Perl 5.8.7 is an upgrade and will replace our current version of the
popular development language. ImageMagick is a powerful software suite
that integrates with other applications for creating, editing, and
composing bitmap images. We're also working on upgrading our current
version of SpamAssassin to version 3.0.4 which will make it even easier
to filter out SPAM from your e-mail inbox.
___________________________

- Infrastructure Improvements -

Our IT Department's primary efforts continue to be centered around
improvements to the speed and reliability of our infrastructure. We
have made positive gains thus far, but have aggressive plans over the
next few months. These efforts represent the core of our business and
remain a top priority.
