Stone Design Announces "Homecoming Sale"

      September 16, 1997 - Albuquerque, New Mexico - Stone Design announced today the "Homecoming" Sale on its suite of NEXTSTEP software, which runs on NEXTSTEP and OpenStep MACH. In response to the placement of Steve Jobs as interim CEO at Apple Computer, and the return of Stone Design to the Macintosh software community, we wished to honor the pioneers who were early adopters of this next millennial technology with some awesome prices.

      The StoneWare suite consists of
DataPhile(TM), the multi-media, easy to use database manager, Create(TM), THE powerful graphics package, 3DReality(TM), a 3D modeler and renderer, and CheckSum(TM), a check writer and finance manager.

      A bundle of all of these Stone Design applications for NEXTSTEP is now available for only $199, a very special deal. These apps originally listed for $1,979. This bundle includes DataPhile 3.1, Create 3.1, 3D Reality 2.1 and CheckSum 2.0. All of the licenses will be upgradeable to "Rhapsody" - Apple Computer's codename for the next generation operating system. This sale is only available until Nov 2, 1997. If you do not care
to ftp the apps, add $20 USA ($30 International) for CD, shipping & handling. We accept VISA/MasterCard and money orders.

DataPhile 3.1 is a flat-file database designed for people who need flexibility without the complexities of a rigid, relational system. Using DataPhile's intuitive front end, anyone can build and manage a database, modifying it and generating reports easily. DataPhile also comes with a number of useful template databases so you can begin using it right out of the box. DataPhile requires no additional servers; it functions alone or in a networked environment, on Motorola, Intel, Sun and HP-RISC processors.

Create 3.1 is THE fully supported drawing application for NEXTSTEP. Create is a multi-page, full color, easy and fun to use graphics program that is perfect for professional artists and non-artists alike. Create's tool palette is highly extensive, including arcs, circles, lines, curves, splines, ovals, rectangles, squares, text, super text, and freehand tools. Create's User PostScript is unique, and perfect for advanced users or users who would like to learn more about PostScript, view, directly edit and repeatedly execute the PostScript code associated with any object created in or imported into the program.

3D Reality is a 3D modeling and rendering front end for Pixar's Renderman. 3D Reality creates photorealistic three dimensional drawings and includes many textures, shaders and sample images.

CheckSum is the personal finance manager and check writer for the NEXTSTEP platform.
