What We Are Working On
=========================================

- Joomla! 1.0.4 -

The latest version of this Open Source Content Management System
(CMS) contains fixes for a number of security vulnerabilities.

Joomla! is the upgrade to WestHost's previous CMS Site Application,
Mambo, an earlier creation of the core Joomla! development team. It
is a great application if you are looking at building and easily
maintaining a site with forums, blogs, news, links, polls,
calendaring, and just about any other type of website content.

- Dadamail 2.10.1 -

A number of new features will come with this popular mailing list
manager release. Dadamail (similar to Majordomo) allows you to
create and manage large distribution e-mail lists.

- Infrastructure Improvements -

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

This month we'll be making improvements to the redundandy of our
network and in the next couple of months increasing it's capacity,
upgrading one of our DS-3's to an OC-3.
