Apple has released HyperCard 2.4.1, a minor update to its long-lived authoring and scripting tool. HyperCard 2.4.1 fixes problems when using HyperCard with drives larger than 2 GB, and removes the persistent display of the "Get QuickTime Pro" movie when using HyperCard 2.4 with QuickTime 3.0. (HyperCard 2.4 was released under Apple's original, poorly-received QuickTime 3.0 licensing terms; see "Apple Releases HyperCard 2.4" in TidBITS 427 and "Apple Revises QuickTime 3 Licensing" in TidBITS 430.) HyperCard 2.4.1 is available for $99 via the Apple Store; owners of HyperCard 2.3, 2.3.5, and 2.4 can download a free 5.2 MB update from Apple. HyperCard Player 2.4.1 (1.6 MB) is also available.
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the best-selling Take Control ebooks.
