Stone Design Ships C R E A T E (tm) 5.0
For OpenStep and Rhapsody Developer Release 2

Albuquerque, NM - November 12, 1998 - Longtime OpenStep and Yellow Box
developers, Stone Design, announced that Create 5, the powerful draw studio
and web page maker has shipped for OpenStep and Rhapsody Developer Release
2 today. This release incorporates numerous new features on the much
imitated but never duplicated Create.

Create is the all-in-one drawing and web page production application that
has been shipping for NeXTSTEP/OpenStep for over 9 years. Create has the
power and features that graphic designers need to make professional web
pages, flyers, letterheads and much more. The Stone Design web site, which
was fabricated in Create, shows off the range and power of this application.

Create lists for $695, but is specially priced to move at $249, and
includes the web animation making tool, GIFfun. Also included is a free
upgrade to the Mac OS X Server or Yellow Box version when they ship.
Previous registered users of Create 4.2 can upgrade for $39. Version 3.x
can be upgraded for $149.

Stone Design is offering a 25 Day free trial period on this release (good
through Dec 7th, 1999), beginning today. Downloading is available now.
