CE Updates -- Mark H. Anbinder passes on this information. "CE Software, Inc., has just announced that the company is now shipping System 7 compatibility upgrades for its products DiskTop, In/Out, and Amazing Paint. The upgrades, each of which costs $15 (though a DiskTop updater is available from various online services), offer 32-bit clean compatibility with System 7. The exception is In/Out, whose server software is not System 7 compatible, even though the client software is. US and Canadian users may call CE's customer service office at 800/523-7638 to inquire about the upgrades, and international users should contact their local distributors for information, or call CE at 515/224-1995."
