New release builds on Server Extensions, File Transfer, Chat features, and
OS Updates.

Irvine, CA - October 22, 1998 - Spider Island Software,
http://www.spiderisland.com, announced today that a new release, version
5.7, of its highly rated TeleFinder Internet BBS Server will be available
next week.

TeleFinder v5.7 extends its use of Apple Scripting to support: server side
file transfer and new user processing, and client side chat extensions.
File Transfer speed has been optimized for fast network connections, and is
up to four times faster than previous versions.

BBS SERVER
Successful uploads to the server are automatically passed to the
"ProcessFileTransfer" server exetension along with specific details about
the file, user and destination. Using AppleScript, C/C++, or other
scripting software, thise feature makes it easy to integrate incoming files
into a business workflow.

There is also a new extension interface for scripts and 3rd party software
for hooking into the creation of new user accounts that can automate the
routine aspects of new user maintanence.

MACINSTOSH BBS CLIENT
The TeleFinder v5.7 Macintosh adds the ability for users to create "Chat
Bots" using the Apple Scriptable Chat Extensions.

Using Chat Extensions users can create client side custom loggers, add
spelling correction, "twit" filters, fortune tellers, online help and more.

Version 5.7 also supports user definable file transfer "Helpers" using the
MacOS 8.5 Internet Control Panel data, or an application specific database.
file transfer Helpers process files after successful downloading.

This version now includes it's own File Transfer Log to record the results
of all file transfer activity on the client side. Adds ability to use Chat
Rooms in any part of the BBS. Inlcudes support for MacOS 8.5's Navigation
Services.

File Tranfers using TeleFinder's high speed "Background" protocol can now
recover from broken connections without data loss. The Background protocol
has also been optimized to get the full benefit from T1 or better
connections.

WINDOWS BBS CLIENT
In TeleFinder v5.7 the Windows client is now 32 bit native for Windows
95/98 and NT. The new version adds long filename support, the new Windows
File Browser, and 32 bit networking. TeleFInder/User for Windows also
includes it's own File Transfer Log. Integrated "Thumbnail" viewer no
longer requires the additional QuickTime for Windows installation. Adds
ability to use Chat Rooms in any part of the BBS.

WEB SERVING
The Web Server is optimized for Open Transport 2.0, and is now capable of
serving in excess of 17 million requests per day. TeleFinder v5.7 also adds
new options available in the Active Pages including sorting of directory
listings and support for the CGI "Query String" parameter.

The Web Server also prevents "dead listeners" by monitoring the state of
the TCP-IP link and resetting TCP-IP when it detects a failed link. The
server's log can now be rolled over on a predefined interval.

MODEM SUPPORT
Added support files for Apple GV 56K, Farallon Netopia, Megahertz
CruiseCards, Hayes Accura 56K and Global Village Teleport X2.

PRICING
TeleFinder is $675 for the Web, Email and BBS Servers. A license for
unlimited distribution of the TeleFinder clients and 2 concurrent users is
included with the package. The upgrade is free to purchasers of version
5.6, $150 from previous versions. Version 5.7 is available now.

OEM, Site, and Source code licenses are also available.
