BadBlue PHP server adds instant MS Word publishing

The new, free BadBlue version 1.7 is now available – http://badblue.com/down.htm – with some cool new features. BadBlue is a very small, personal web server for Windows that includes peer-to-peer file sharing and instant MS Office publishing features. BadBlue is definitely one of the easier ways to serve or test PHP pages – see http://badblue.com/helpphp.htm for all the details.

New in BadBlue 1.7:

* When you share a Microsoft Word file, users can view it live in their browser window full formatted (images, tables and all text formatting is converted into HTML automatically) – see http://badblue.com/helpdoc.htm for easy instructions

* When you share Microsoft Office files, you can now prevent users
from downloading copies of your files and force them to use the
“live view” option only – they can only view the Word, Excel or
Access data but can not download their own copy of it – see
http://badblue.com/helpxls.htm for instructions

* Faster web serving – if you use BadBlue to serve HTML, PHP, CGI,
etc. and have turned off peer-to-peer sharing, you’ll find
BadBlue 1.7 runs all normal web serving functions faster – get
a copy at http://badblue.com/down.htm

* Search results ordering bug fixed – after pressing the “Stop
reloading” button, the prior order of search results is correctly
remembered; just click on any search result column to sort in that
column’s order
