MasterJuggler Pro Tracks More Fonts

MasterJuggler Pro Tracks More Fonts -- Alsoft has released two new versions of its font management utility MasterJuggler Pro to provide Mac OS 9 compatibility and expand the number of fonts that can be opened simultaneously. MasterJuggler Pro 2.0.3, a 426K download, is a free update that provides only Mac OS 9 compatibility. MasterJuggler Pro 2.1 takes advantage of Mac OS 9's capability to have more than 348 open files by supporting up to 1,200 open font suitcases. The 2.1 upgrade costs $18 (actually $13 plus a $5 processing fee) for owners of MasterJuggler Pro 2.0 and later. However, the update is available only on floppy disk, a questionable move considering that no current Macintosh computers ship with floppy drives. [JLC]
