John Mauro Software is proud to announce the release of PowerCalc 4.0, one

version 4.0, up to 1000 values may be stored. Each value is easily

colors to the welcome message may be customized. PowerCalc 4.0 is 100%
compatible with Apple’s new version of the Appearance control panel.

point to it. A balloon will pop up explaining how to use the feature.
