[MD1] BeOS/MacTech Bundle Avail in Quantity

BeOS/MacTech Bundle Available in Quantity
January issue of MacTech Magazine contains BeOS for PowerMac DR8

As announced in October of 1996, the January 1997 issue of MacTech
Magazine includes the BeOS(tm) DR8 for Power Macintosh bundled, free of
charge, on CD and bound into the magazine.

This issue has been extremely difficult to get in bookstores and on the
newsstand. In fact, stores have had to take names for waiting lists --
something rarely done for a magazine.

To alleviate this problem, and with some luck, the publishers of MacTech
Magazine have been able to arrange to get additional copies of the issue --
something also very rare in the industry.

This back issue is available through DevDepot. Back issues of
MacTech Magazine cost $10 plus shipping and handling.

(Standard Shipping: $3 US, $5 Canadian, $6 Foreign; Rush/overnight charges
are more). Allow 2-3 business days for the issue to be shipped plus
shipping time.

To order contact DevDepot in the following ways:

* mailto:orders@devdepot.com
* 800-MACDEV-1 (US/Canada)
* 805-494-9797
* http://www.devdepot.com

The January issue includes articles on Porting Code to the BeOS and using
the BeOS plug-in architecture.

Note: BeOS for PowerMac DR8 does not run on all Power Macs. See below for
more details as to which models it runs on.

BeOS Background
---------------
The BeOS brings to the PowerMac platform a true, preemptive
multitasking, multi-threaded software system - offering protected
memory, true virtual memory, and an application architecture based on
shared libraries and modular code. The system's API is object-oriented,
an approach to software development that helps speed the addition of new
application capabilities. The BeOS leverages the latest in graphical
user interface concepts to produce an operating system that is both
powerful, and simple to use.

Within the BeOS, a variety of "software kits" and application tools
provide a wealth of functionality that includes integrated database
capabilities, 3D graphics, support for audio and MIDI data streams,
integrated Internet mail, remote log-in, and file and web serving
capabilities.

In addition to these capabilities, the BeOS incorporates many of the
data and network standards in use today, such as TCP/IP networking and
Internet protocols, TrueType and Postscript font technology, MPEG and
QuickTime video formats, Posix and standard UNIX tools, and more. In
addition, Be announced that it has licensed OpenGL(r), the industry
standard 3D environment from Silicon Graphics, and is working with
Metrowerks, Inc. to bring the Java language and environment to the BeOS.

The Bundled CD
BeOS for PowerMac, Developer Release 8
--------------------------------------
The CD bundled in the January issue of MacTech Magazine will be BeOS for
PowerMac, Developer Release 8. It supports a whole slew of 603 and 604
based PowerMacs from PowerComputing, Apple, and UMAX. For example, the
Catalyst and Tsunami architectures from Apple: Power Macs 7600, 8500 and
9500; Power Computing's PowerCenter, PowerTower, PowerTower E,
PowerTower Pro, and PowerWave; and the UMAX S900. DR8 does not support
drive partitioning, so you will need a small dedicated hard disk to boot
the BeOS. (Drive partitioning is supported in the release version of
BeOS for PowerMac currently slated for the first quarter, 1997).

The DR8 release of the BeOS for PowerMac is an early release meant for
development purposes. Be plans to ship the BeOS "Preview Release" in
the first quarter of 1997, and will be ready-to-run by end-users and
developers alike. MacTech readers who receive the DR8 release should
register with Be on the Be web site so that they can receive information
about receiving the Preview Release when it is available.
