ClarisWorks Turns Four -- ClarisWorks 4.0 for the Macintosh is now shipping, and upgrades are available for $49 (list price is $129). The Windows version of ClarisWorks 4.0 is slated for release before the end of 1995 and will have the same interface as the Macintosh version. ClarisWorks 4.0 requires System 7, and runs on any 68020-based Macintosh or newer. New features include a new way of doing styles, called ExpressStyle; an HTML translation tool; general improvements and easier report generation in the database module; and WorldScript support. Overall, and especially given the price, the feature set looks impressive. My only quibble is that Claris hasn't yet updated their Web site to provide information and a demo about for new version.
