We're in leak-mode on a new version of Frontier for an operating system that more people are starting to use.

Some have asked What About Frontier? Oh yes, we have major new stuff in Frontier 7, that's next on the plate. No change in price. Frontier is the server for huge numbers of Manila sites. Radio is a desktop tool. We've been talking about the "workstation product" for a few years. That's Radio. It's for people. Frontier is for big groups of people. They work together well, by design.

Hey I got an email from Pete Dako who was Rookie of the Year in the Frontier community in 1992. Nice to hear from an oldtimer. He did the production for the Frontier 3.0 docs, for love, very little money. That was back when we printed docs on dead trees. Them was the days. Come sit on my knee, I'll tell you all about it.

A new callback for Manila sites.

Brent documented the new xml.rss verbs in Frontier 7. These verbs are the core of My.UserLand, so now it's easy to build your own RSS-based aggregator with Frontier.

Pfieffer Report: "In a funny way, we are back to where publishing was before DTP came around: content creation and management is once again the playground of larger players, and requires heavy investment, just as publishing technology did before XPress arrived." Amen.

Another new sample is from Emmanuel Décarie: Sending a file with tcp.sendMail.
