Altura Software, Inc. Announces Mac2NeXT Compatibility

PACIFIC GROVE, California - December 25, 1996 - Altura Software, Inc.
announced today its intention to create a Mac2NeXT Porting Technology to
provide Macintosh Developers a quick and easy way to port their Mac
Applications to Apple's "NewOS" operating system.

Altura will leverage it's Mac2Win Porting Technology which is being used
by major Mac Developers such as Fractal Design, Claris, ACI, Macromedia,
and Metrowerks. Mac2Win is a library that allows MacOS code to be ported
to Windows 3.1, Windows 95, and Windows NT without it having to be

"We're as excited as the rest of the Mac community about Apple's recent
announcements regarding NeXT," commented Lee Lorenzen, President of
Altura. "Of course, this is all very new, and we can't be sure of all the
details. But, we knew immediately that we wanted to voice our support for
the new direction by making this announcement."

Altura currently works very closely with Apple and Metrowerks (the major
tools provider for Mac Developers). These relationships give Altura a
head-start in re-targeting its Mac2Win Technology for NeXT as soon as
documentation and tools become available. Additional details regarding
price and availability will be provided at Altura's booth in Developer
Central at the MacWorld(r) Exposition in San Francisco, January 1997.

"Mac2Win made it possible to quickly port our application to Windows
without having to rewrite it," remarked Dieter Weidenbruck, Chairman, the
IsoDraw Company. "With Mac2Win, it's a real Windows app. It has the
correct look and feel. With Mac2NeXT, I'm sure Altura will achieve this
same level of smooth integration and native platform look and feel. I know
that Altura has the experience necessary to deliver a dynamite Mac2NeXT
