FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 8, 1997

BLUE WORLD TECHNOLOGY ACQUIRED BY CLARIS
Underlying Lasso technology part of FileMaker Pro 4.0

BELLEVUE, WA - September 8, 1997 - Blue World Communications, Inc. and
Claris Corporation today announced that Blue World's Lasso for
Web-enabling databases has been integrated into FileMaker Pro 4.0 for
Windows 95, Windows NT, Windows 3.1 and Mac OS from Claris Corporation.
Under the terms of the agreement, Claris has acquired the Lasso technology
and licensed certain rights back to Blue World. Blue World plans to
continue enhancing Lasso and distributing new versions of Lasso as a
commercial product.

"We believe Blue World has developed a fast, elegant approach to putting
FileMaker Pro databases on the Web, a solution that all FileMaker Pro users
will welcome," said Claris President Dominique Goupil.

"Our customers have always considered Lasso to be the leading solution for
Web database publishing with FileMaker Pro for Mac OS," said Blue World
President & CEO Bill Doerrfeld. "Claris' incorporation of Lasso technology
allows us to keep improving an established product and work on new ways to
further Internet-enable FileMaker Pro."

FileMaker Pro 4.0, scheduled to ship in October, embeds a subset of Lasso
2.0 technology as FileMaker Pro's web companion. This integration provides
FileMaker Pro 4.0 owners with out-of-the-box Web database publishing and
server capabilities.

Blue World will continue to sell the full Lasso 2.0 product to users of
both FileMaker Pro 3.0 and FileMaker Pro 4.0 for Mac OS. Lasso 2.0
Web-enables FileMaker Pro 3.0 and a Lasso 2.0 Server version adds a
stand-alone Web server with integrated Lasso 2.0 CGI.

Lasso 2.0 also provides additional features for FileMaker Pro 4.0 databases
beyond what is included in the new version, including an "inline" command
to process multiple database operations within a single HTML file; a "log"
command to log traffic statistics to target databases and/or text files;
and Apple Event control of other server applications. Lasso 2.0 is
available from select resellers and Blue World
(http://www.blueworld.com/lasso/order/).

Separately, Blue World announced Lasso 2.1, an upgrade scheduled to be
available in the fourth quarter of 1997. More details are available on Blue
World's Web site at www.blueworld.com.
