Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.news Subject: APE and Prosystem '98 Beta Available Posted-By: xx004 (Atari SIG) Date: Sat Jun 19 17:30:21 1999 From: "Steven J. Tucker" Date: Thu May 27 13:23:43 1999 Final beta test versions of Ape '98 and Prosystem '98 are now available for registered users of APE. A few of the new features in APE '98 vs. the dos version are: Excellent stability under even the heaviest system loads, runs as a real windows device driver in the background. No more sputtering or timeouts when running programs. Runs in the system tray and uses 0% of the CPU when idle, even on a 486 system. Does not use more than 3-4% of available CPU time even when loading from the Atari at highest possible speed. 8 independany PC-MIRROR drives, as well as the complete big disk support your used to in APE. Each independant PC-MIRROR drive can also act as an independant APELOADER drive if your OS supports booting from drives other than drive 1. A file browser with built-in support for viewing the complete directory tree of any Atari/Mydos or Spartados image, and extracting files. Advanced printer support. Print from your Atari to any windows printer driver, using truetype fonts, direct to the pc printer port, to a file, or to a print monitor window. Plus many other new features like the nice GUI and ease of use. Check it out if you have Windows and are using APE. The prosystem has been completely rewritten and includes batch support of 1-4 drives for every operation. Need to image a bunch of disks? Just hook four drives upto your Prosystem interface and press start. Need to format a box of disks? how about formatting all 4 drives at once to make things easier and faster? To get your beta copy just e-mail me with your registration information and I will send you the dpownload URL and password. Any information regarding bugs or new features would be greatly appriciated.
