PLOTVIEW 4.0 RELEASED

STEVENS CREEK SOFTWARE UPDATES ITS HP PLOTTER EMULATOR FOR THE MACINTOSH

CUPERTINO, Calif.--May 16, 1997--Stevens Creek Software announced
today that it has begun shipping the long-awaited update to its first
commercial product, PlotView (tm) for the Macintosh. Since its
introduction in 1988, PlotView has been the only Hewlett-Packard
plotter emulator on the market, not only translating files of
Hewlett-Packard Graphics Language (HP-GL) commands into PICT images,
but also accepting HP-GL input direct via the serial port of the
Macintosh. Users of PlotView include users of a wide variety of
scientific instruments, digital oscilloscopes, and computer software
on other platforms which produces HP-GL output.

PlotView 4.0 is a 32-bit clean version that runs on all PowerMacs and
is compatible with the latest System software. It also features:

  o Greater flexibility and reliability when connecting to scientific
    instruments or other computers via the serial port, giving users
    control over handshaking options and port selection. 
  o Increased control over the HP-GL interpretation, giving users more
    choices in line thickness and a wider range of font sizes.
  o Significantly higher resolution printed output than earlier
    versions.

Version 4.0 of PlotView is shipping now. Full information about the
software, sample "plots" illustrating a wide range of applications,
as well as a complete online HTML manual, can be found at:
<http://www.stevenscreek.com/PlotView>. A functional trial copy of
the software (with limitations on printing and saving) can also be
downloaded from the site. Users of older versions of the software can
order upgrades at the Web site, or by email (sales at stevenscreek.com),
phone (1-800-823-4279) or fax (1-408-725-0424).
