THE MACTECH CD-ROM VOL 1-13 NOW SHIPPING
-- CD now includes the first release of the THINK Reference Compiler

NEW YORK CITY -- July 8, 1998 -- Xplain Corporation, the publisher of
MacTech(r) Magazine, today announced that it is shipping the latest release
of the MacTech CD-ROM, Volumes 1-13, at the Macworld Expo in New York (July
7-10). The new CD includes the first release of the THINK Reference(tm)
Compiler.

As one of the first CD-ROM publishers, MacTech Magazine has updated its
historical CD each year. The CD has become an essential reference tool for
Macintosh programmers, containing a wealth of programming information,
hundreds of megabytes of source code, special offers, preview demos of new
programming tools, and much more.

The MacTech CD, Volumes 1-13, includes every article published in MacTech
Magazine (from November, 1984 through May, 1998). It has the entire history
of Apple's develop technical journal (over eight years of articles most by
Apple's own system engineers and programmers). The CD also includes Apple's
original Inside Macintosh technical documentation (Volumes I-VI), and the
most complete set of Frameworks archives known (the publication of the late
Software Frameworks Association) making the MacTech CD-ROM the single most
extensive collection of Macintosh programming literature available.

All of this information is presented in the form of THINK Reference
databases and a new version of the THINK Reference Viewer is provided on
the CD. THINK Reference is one of the most beloved developer resources ever
available for the Macintosh. Metrowerk's CodeWarrior, Bare Bones' BBEdit,
Symantec C++, and other Macintosh application development environments
offer a transparent interface between their editors and THINK Reference,
allowing programmers to simply hilight text and then search THINK Reference
databases for that text with a simple key combination.

The new THINK Reference Viewer, version 2.6, released on the MacTech CD
offers new search tools. Users can now employ boolean expressions ("and",
"or", "not", "near" and others) to refine and focus their searches. The new
search engine also offers performance improvements, making searches up to
10 times faster than in previous versions. Also, with this release the
viewer supports embedded URLs -- allowing users to access references on the
world wide web with a single click.

This release of the MacTech CD includes the first public release ever of
the THINK Reference Compiler. This tool allows programmers to convert their
own HTML file collections into personal THINK Reference databases. The
power and versatility of the THINK Reference Viewer can now be applied to
whatever reference information programmers choose to create and collect --
allowing them to organize, expand and customize their personal Macintosh
reference library. Commercial licenses are available as well.

The MacTech CD has a list price of $129, but will be available for a
limited time at the introductory price of only $99. The introductory price
will only be available until July 31st. All customers who purchased the
MacTech CD 1-12 after March 1, 1998 will automatically receive the new
version at no charge and other customers who have purchased earlier
versions of the MacTech CD-ROM will be able to upgrade for $49. All orders
and customer service questions are handled through DevDepot,
MacTech's primary distributor. Sales: 800-MACDEV-1, Voice: 805-494-9797,
Fax: 805-494-9798, orders@devdepot.com.

The MacTech CD is available at Developer Central during Macworld Expo New
York July 7-10, 1998. The MacTech station will be located within Developer
Central at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City.
