QC Goes PowerPC Native -- Onyx Technologies has released the long-anticipated PowerPC-native version of QC, its popular software testing tool. Version 1.2 offers significantly increased performance on Power Macs, plus additional tools previously unavailable under the Modern Memory Manager. The update is free for registered QC users and available online; QC normally costs $99. If you don't use QC and do any serious programming or software testing, you owe it to yourself to download a demo and get a demo serial number from Onyx. [GD]
