Seapine Software Brings TestTrack to the Linux Platform

MASON, Ohio, March 7, 2001 -- Seapine Software™, Inc. has ported its innovative TestTrack Pro™ 3.1 software application with XML support to the Linux platform. The industry-leading defect tracking solution's capabilities are now available to developers running Linux servers.Adding Linux compatibility to TestTrack Pro's client/server architecture expands the flexibility of a product already unsurpassed in the industry for its speed, flexibility, and ease of use. "The server room is a heterogeneous environment, with Linux, Windows NT, and Solaris coexisting to provide a variety of intranet and extranet services," said Richard Riccetti, President of Seapine Software, Inc. "TestTrack Pro is ideally positioned to provide strong defect tracking support on any of these server platforms."According to the International Data Corp., Linux is one of the fastest-growing server OS platforms in the marketplace. Use of Linux as a server OS had grown to 25 percent by the end of 1999, the most recent year for which figures are available. Much of Linux’s popularity is based on its rock-solid performance as a server OS.A Solaris version of TestTrack Pro's server component for both Intel and Sparc platforms is also under development and is slated for release later in 2001."TestTrack continues its commitment to delivering the best solutions for our customers with the Linux port," Mr. Riccetti said. "Linux and the open source movement represent a growing force in the developer marketplace. TestTrack Pro for Linux allows us to offer the maximum flexibility to our customers."
