1. A Web Application Delivery Framework for AllegroServe

This Tech Corner article describes a simple framework for delivering
AllegroServe web applications. It includes built-in code to run a
server as a daemon or NT Service, allows on the fly reloading of the
published application, offers telnet access for debugging from the
localhost only, and automatically sets up logging with additional
support for log rotation. It also includes a sample web application to
demo these capabilities.

2. A major CLIM update on all platforms

The update was made available in mid-March. There are different
Windows and UNIX/UN*X-like versions. Updates are downloaded with
sys:update-allegro or, on Windows using the IDE, with the Download
Patches dialog accessible from the Help menu. The following issues are
among those dealt with in the update:

* Added support for international character input/output on Motif
platforms.

* Added support for loading pixmaps from CL streams on Motif by
passing an explicit format argument to make-pattern-from-bitmap-file.

* Modified the minimal width of text fields on Windows so they can now
be narrower than 75 pixels.

* Fixed behavior of multi-value selection list boxes on Windows.

* Fixed the cursor positions reported by text-field-cursor on Windows.

All CLIM users should get the update. The CLIM documentation has not
changed.

3. Free Webinar: Social Network Analytics using an RDF Database

Wednesday, May 7, 10:00 - 11:00 am Pacific.

Many enterprise databases contain information about people, companies,
along with relationships between people and companies. The Semantic
Web carries the promise that we can use Semantic Technologies to
analyze networks of people and companies as well as events in time and
space. In this seminar, we will show how we can combine the current
state of the art for RDF and OWL reasoning with a number of well-known
Social Network Analytics.
