Westlake Village, CA -- December 26, 1997 -- Xplain Corporation, the

To that end, these editorial additions come at a great time for the
magazine while it is enjoying its continued growth and success.

"The Mac developer industry is at a point today where now, more than ever,
developers are looking for information, direction and news." said Neil
Ticktin, Publisher of MacTech. "MacTech has continued to grow, even in the
past year, providing a variety of services in a variety of formats. Our
