For Immediate Release
Bleu Rose Ltd. Announces New Version 1.1 Release – Black & Bleu(tm)

Hacienda Heights, California, (June 1, 1999) – Bleu Rose Ltd. today
announced the release of Black & Bleu(tm) Version 1.1, an application
that shows Apple’s explanation of all of the common and most of the
unusual Macintosh OS error codes. Black & Bleu(tm) now contains about
3000 error codes. Many have detailed explanations and remedies
available. This update provides:

* Enhancement of all “User Oriented” detailed explanations with
additional information.

* Addition of a way to distinguish between error codes that use the
same number.

* Addition of the name of the system component that is associated
with the error (such as QuickTime).

* Addition of a way to list only those errors that are associated
with a specific system component.

* Over 400 new error codes.

* Many more detailed explanations.

This is the most comprehensive list of error codes and remedies
currently available anywhere.

A free error analysis by one of our experienced developers is
available for errors that don’t have a detailed explanation. This
service is available to anyone, at no charge, even if you haven’t
purchased Black & Bleu(tm).

Explanations give users detailed information in 2 categories:

* a Non-technical User orientation

* a Programmer orientation

The Non-technical User explanation is presented in a way that someone
without a programming background can understand. The Programmer
explanation is written in VERY technical terms that usually includes
source code that demonstrates the error. To fully understand the
Programmer explanation, the user should be familiar with Macintosh
programming (in C or C++).
