Stone Design Ships DataPhile Y2K
for NeXTSTEP & OpenStep

Albuquerque, NM, December 24 1998 - One of the few remaining original NEXTSTEP developers,
Stone Design, today shipped DataPhile Y2K - a major upgrade to the premier NeXTSTEP multi-media database manager DataPhile. New features include Year 2000 compliant date handling, ability to publish databases to the web, and ability to export all of the calculations in a database.

Katie Graunke, Director of Marketing, said, "Many customers wanted to know if DataPhile for NeXTSTEP was Year 2000 compliant, so we've taken the steps to insure a smooth transition into the next millennium. And to make this a worthwhile upgrade, we've added the ability to create web pages from your databases on the fly. We still have a big committment to the NeXT community."

This release will run on NeXTStep 3.1 or greater and OpenStep for Mach on the following architectures: INTEL, SPARC, HPPA and NeXT Computers. The upgrade is available for a limited time for $59 for current users of DataPhile 3.1; the cost of a new license is $159.
