Xcelerated Systems Inc, San Diego has rushed out Version 1.2 of its Liken software, the program that enables applications written for the Apple Computer Inc Macintosh Classic to run unchanged on Sun Microsystems Inc Sparcstations. The company says that the new version improves the sharing between Sun and Mac environments, enhances cut and paste functionality, and includes more user-customisable set-up features. Liken enables Macintosh Classic applications to be run without modification in an X Window on Sun and compatible Sparc-based workstations. The file sharing capability is provided by support for file exchange utilities using the uShare, Columbia AppleTalk, AppleSingle and AppleDouble file transfer protocols. The new release also supports Sun’s line of Sparc-based laser printers. The firm now also offers floating licences, permitting access to Liken by any user on a Sun-based network; a single licence is $700, a floating one is $900.
