    Important Notices

    - WestHost 3.0 Launch -

    WestHost 3.0 represents a number of significant and favorable changes
    for new and existing clients, and will launch this coming Monday,
    April 23rd. We're very pleased to offer this to our clients, and we
    feel you'll be happy with the changes as well.

    New accounts will have immediate access to the 3.0 system after the
    launch, and will enjoy a number of benefits inherent in the 3.0
    system, including:

    - An improved Site Manager, with better performance and a more
    intuitive interface. To view a screenshot demo of the new Site
    Manager, please go to

    - Upgraded applications, including:

    Perl 5.8.8
    MySQL 4.1.22
    MySQL 5.0.27
    Ruby 1.8.6
    Ruby on Rails 1.2.3
    AWStats 6.6
    Apache Tomcat 5.5
    Gallery 2.2
    ImageMagick 6.3.3
    Darwin 5.5.4

    Please note that existing clients will not have access to these
    upgraded applications until having been upgraded to the 3.0 system.
    The process of upgrading existing clients to WestHost 3.0 will
    start after the upcoming launch, and is scheduled to be finished
    by the end of September.

    - An upgraded kernel and Apache 2, which will allow WestHost and
    our clients greater flexibility in the deployment of future
    applications, as well as address some issues inherent with our
    previous kernel version, resulting in better overall performance.

    - An upgraded version of Sendmail (v. 8.13.1).

    With the release of 3.0, WestHost will also be deploying increases
    to our offering across some of our Personal and Business plans.
    WestHost will be sending notification of plan updates next week to
    clients whose plans have changed.
