eWorld Turns One — To note the one-year anniversary of its eWorld online service, Apple announced version 1.1 of the eWorld client software, which should be available online via eWorld and will also be pre-installed on Macintoshes in all countries where eWorld is available. Users of this new version will have access to Usenet and Internet FTP within a few weeks, and Web access is scheduled to become available in July. The new client software is also supposed to incorporate new multimedia capabilities and a sophisticated email agent allowing filters and automatic responses. Apple also announced it is moving its employees to eWorld from AppleLink, with all AppleLink subscribers expected to be moved over by the end of the calendar year. [GD]
