Ottawa, Canada August 19, 1999 Corel Corporation (NASDAQ: CORL, TSE: COR)
is pleased to announce that the free* download for Corel WordPerfect 3.5
Enhancement Pack for Macintosh is now available from its Web site
Corel announced in July that it would make Corel WordPerfect 3.5
Enhancement Pack for Macintosh available as a free* download. Despite some
minor incompatibilities with the latest release of the Mac OS, Corel
believes that WordPerfect 3.5 for Macintosh continues to provide great
value to the Macintosh community.
Corel WordPerfect 3.5 Enhancement Pack for Macintosh, released in August,
1997, is the latest version of this product by Corel. The version that is
available for download is a complete product and not just a patch, update
or add-on pack to a previous version. This download offers new and existing
customers a complete word-processing solution and incorporates all updates
and patches issued by Corel subsequent to the original product release.
The free* download consists of the WordPerfect application and utilities
only. Clipart, web art, sounds, templates and some fonts that are included
with the full product will not be included in the downloadable package.
Customers who wish to purchase the full product may still do so through
Corel Customer Service (1-800-77-COREL) or through Corel eStore, while
WordPerfect 3.5 Enhancement Pack for Macintosh offers incredible value
with its compatibility with older, non-power PC-based Macintoshes, speed,
customizability and rich functionality, said John Geleynse, Macintosh
brand manager at Corel Corporation. Continuous feedback from our customers
has clearly demonstrated the Macintosh communitys loyalty to WordPerfect
for Macintosh. We are offering this free download so that users have a
low-cost alternative word processing solution.
Please note that technical support will only be available until October 29,
1999. For information on technical support, please call 1-800-861-2410.
Aging source code and increasing differences in functionality between the
Macintosh and Windows versions of WordPerfect have made it no longer
feasible for Corel to enhance or build on the WordPerfect 3.5 Macintosh
code base. Therefore, no further versions of WordPerfect for Macintosh will
be released based on the 3.5 code base.
