(Somerville, MA - November 13th, 1996) Akimbo Systems announced today
that it is preparing to release version 1.1 of its Globetrotter Web
Publisher package, the powerful easy-to-use third-generation web
publishing package for Mac OS computers. The update will be free to all
owners of Globetrotter. Complete information about the product and an
order form are at the company's web site http://www.akimbo.com. Users who
purchase Globetrotter 1.0 will receive a free upgrade to 1.1 when it is
released. A new fully-functioning Demo version of Globetrotter 1.1 will
also be available on the web site.

Powerful New Features
Globetrotter 1.1 augments the powerful outlining and table functions,
making it easier for users to create and format outlines and tables.
Users can create bullet and numbered lists more easily, including
intermixing different formats within a single outline -- a feature unique
to Globetrotter. Users can set the format of each section of an outline
independently and can set a default format for a document.
Tables now support cell spacing and padding, vertical and horizontal
alignment of cells, and alignment of entire tables. A new graphical menu
allows users to directly create tables of a desired size. A Globetrotter
exclusive feature allows users to display table borders on screen only,
making it much easier to use tables for layout purposes.
Globetrotter forms, which already support automatically-named fields
and CGI script creation, now support grouped checkboxes and maximum field
lengths. Field lengths are enforced by CGI scripts for browsers that do
not support them.
Globetrotter's graphical button libraries, an exclusive feature that
allows graphical button pictures to be created automatically, may now be
used for any link in a document. A document option allows users to
quickly change the style of all links in a document. Button libraries
continue to be available for Globetrotter's automatically-created
navigation bars and next/previous buttons. Akimbo is also releasing
information that makes it possible for users and third-parties to create
their own button libraries.
Globetrotter continues to be the only web publishing product available
which supports publishing multiple pages from a single document, a
feature essential for publishing and maintaining web sites. The 1.1
release increases the limit to 512 web pages from a single document, up
from 64. Users publishing large web sites will be pleased with the option
to make any link absolute or relative, overriding the document-wide
preference which may also be used.
Globetrotter 1.1 is still unique in providing full support of fonts
and styles such as Small Caps, automatically correcting links when
documents are moved or renamed, properly scaling pictures which download
faster when they are reduced in size, tracking changed sections of
documents for publication of "New" Icons and numerous other key features.
Some of the other features of the new release include: support for
visited and active link colors; automatic addition of recently-selected
colors to the Color submenu; more flexible horizontal rule options;
user-named marks (in addition to automatically-named marks).

Documentation Updated in Response to User Feedback
Globetrotter's documentation, which has already been updated twice
since the shipment of 1.0, is being updated again, with the addition of
technical notes and a case study on the creation of a web site, plus
additional information in response to user feedback. The company plans to
continue updating the documentation on a regular basis to meet users'
needs.
The documentation, which was specially designed for online access, is
available at all times on the company's web site, and is included with
the application installer, for local access from a hard disk. The Demo
version also includes the complete documentation and sample files.

Free Update for Current Users, Introductory Pricing Extended
Akimbo is giving free upgrades to version 1.1 to all registered users
of Globetrotter. Registered users will be notified by e-mail about how to
update their copies.
Akimbo is also announcing that the introductory price of $99,
previously set to expire on November 13th, is being extended to all
copies purchased from Akimbo Systems and downloaded over the internet.
Users may purchase and download the product directly through Akimbo's web
site, which was created completely with Globetrotter. E-mail queries
should be directed to sales@akimbo.com. Customer support for Globetrotter
will be provided directly on the web site, as well as through electronic
mail (globetrotter@akimbo.com) and the company's support forum on America
Online (keyword: Akimbo).
