Helios server software for Rhapsody released at Apple Worldwide Developer
Helios AppleTalk Toolkit and APIs also available for Rhapsody
May 11, 1998- Cupertino, CA, Apple Worldwide Developer Conference-
Supporting more AppleShare servers worldwide than any other Unix software,
Helios Software GmbH, a leading vendor of Unix/RISC-based network and
prepress server software, announced the availability of Rhapsody versions
of Helios EtherShare, EtherShare OPI , and PDF Handshake at Apple
Computer’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).
All WWDC participants will receive a CD with Helios “a2” pre-versions for
the latest Rhapsody developer release in their conference binder. Helios
will also provide these versions to Apple’s official Rhapsody seeding
partners on request. Due to tight deadlines, Helios PDF Handshake could not
be included on Helios’ WWDC CD, but is made available over the Internet.
The Helios web server http://www.helios.com provides detailed information.
“This Helios software makes any Rhapsody Macintosh a powerful file and
prepress server,” says Helmut Tschemernjak, president of Helios. “Macintosh
users can access their Rhapsody machine like any other AppleShare file
server. Developers will like this idea because it makes transfer of program
listings and binaries between MacOS and Rhapsody a lot more convenient.”
In addition to the developer community, system managers and network users
will also find Rhapsody-based Macintosh computers a fast and versatile
print spooler, OPI server, PostScript font server, ColorSync separation
server, and a powerful PDF color print and workflow server. Administration
of an Helios server on Rhapsody can be done from any Macintosh in the
network, or from within Rhapsody’s BlueBox.
Helios also announced the release of pre-versions of its AppleTalk Toolkit,
which offers identical APIs for AppleTalk on all Helios supported server
platforms, and its other developer tools for Rhapsody.
The Helios pre-releases for Rhapsody are provided free of charge. However,
the license is time limited until November 2, 1998.
