After Dark 2.0w for the new Macs

Send Article to a Friend

After Dark 2.0w for the new Macs -- John Baxter passed on this helpful news about After Dark. Apparently After Dark 2.0v is compatible with System 7.1 but incompatible with the machines released on October 19th - the Performa 600, IIvx, IIvi, PowerBook 160 and 180, and the PowerBook Duo 210 and 240. Berkeley Systems is now shipping a compatible version, 2.0w, and the free updater for 2.0v should be available within the week. You don't need to update unless you have a new machine and if you're can't find it online, you can send a note requesting 2.0w along with your After Dark 2.0 master disk to:
