SignatureTool & BlackBerry JDK & IPv6

A new post to update the post about “Devel on a BlackBerry device”.

OpenSync is modular : a core and plugins for content formats and different kind of connection types.

ProgWeb IPv6 support

Maybe that somebody have noticed that ProgWeb is available from an IPv6 network. Indeed, I have added the IPv6 support for my web server for some days.
