PagePlanet Software (http://www.PagePlanetSoftware.com/products.html) has announced the golden master release of Modular Gateway Interface (MGI) 3.2 for the Mac OS X and Linux operating systems. MGI is an Apache 2 module that adds full functionality to every web site on your server using a simple tag structure.
MGI includes 67 tags to enhance a web site with everything from simple counters and form processing to custom databases and shopping carts. You can also combine MGI's programming tags to make your web site accomplish a variety of things.
MGI 3.2 includes the new Advanced module and mgiPHP tag to process PHP code on any MGI page. The mgiPHP tag is flexible including parameters to exchange information between MGI and PHP. You can dynamically create PHP code, dynamically create MGI code or both. MGI's implementation of PHP also includes the GD graphic extension that can be used to resize images and create thumbnails on the fly.
PHP is bundled with MGI so it's plug and play. However, MGI doesn't use the .php extension, so you can continue to use any other version of PHP to process your .php pages.
MGI 3.2 is available at a discounted rate of US$297 (regularly $347) through April 17. Site licenses, educational and non-profit pricing available upon request. A demo is available for download.
