IBM and Interleaf Inc have at last got Interleaf Publisher under control, and yesterday announced a new Version 1.0.1 of the document composition program that requires only 2Mb of memory compared with the outrageous 6Mb needed for Version 1.0. IBM is offering the program for $1,000 – a dramatic reduction, because it did cost $2,500 – and in the US it will be $750 until August 31. The program, which runs under MS-DOS on an 80386-based PS/2 – including the new 80386SX-based PS/2 Model 55 – and now uses virtual memory to reduce the demand on main memory. It also announced a Custom Migration Support – Data Facility Storage Management Subsystem service to enables users to save time and cost in migrating to a system-managed storage environment, the work to be done at a new San Jose Migration Center. The rest of IBM’s Tuesday announcements included more repeats than the summer TV schedules, price changes and special offers and support for RT packages under AIX PS/2.
