Rank-Xerox has released the Gold Series version of the Xerox Ventura Publisher software which combines the formerly separate Base Product, Professional Extension, and Network Server of Version 2.0. The new software supports 3Com, Novell, PC Net, Expanded Memory and Read Only File/Stylesheets Support. Apart from a GEM Windows 3 version under MS-DOS, Presentation Manager 1.2 under OS/2, and a Macintosh version due in the third quarter, Sun Microsystems and Xerox have also announced that a version under Unix will be available in the second half of 1991.
