KLone 1.20; an embedded web server with dynamic pages support

KoanLogic has released KLone 1.2.0 a fully-featured, multiplatform embedded Web server which allows dynamic pages to be written in C/C++ (usual web scripting style). It is a self-contained solution which includes the HTTP server and an SDK for cr eating stand-alone WWW sites with both static and dynamic content.

The site developer writes his/her dynamic pages in C/C++ and uses KLone to trans form them into embeddable, compressed (and possibly encrypted) native code with the native C/C++ compiler.

The result is then linked to the HTTP/S server skeleton to obtain one single, ROM-able, binary file.

Given its nature, it can be linked natively to any C/C++ library (database, XML, graphics, etc.), without an intermediate layer.

KLone is open-source, and it can be downloaded and compiled on several operating systems: currently Linux, Windows, QNX, VxWorks, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD and Darwin (Mac OS X).
