 "If I don't get some food now, I will wake up dead tomorrow!"

                         VERSION UPDATE

 The  fourth  occurrence of this relatively  new  regular  column
here:  A  summary  of  all current version  numbers  of  specific
utility  programs,  as available to the knowledge of the ST  NEWS
editorial staff at the time of this issue being released.
 It  has  to be noted that the following list  is  compiled  with
knowledge  owned by the aforementioned staff,  and may  therefore
indeed  not  be  very up-to-date as our scope  of  view  is  only
limited.  We have not based this list on rumours,  and  therefore
the version number listed is that of the latest version  actually
seen by us or any of our direct acquaintances.
 Versions  rumoured  to  exist  will,   if  any,   be   mentioned
additionally between round brackets ("-" means "specific  version
number  not  known,   however"  -  we  would  surely   appreciate
information concerning these in that case).
 A version number between square brackets signifies a version  in
development,  if  known.  An  asterisk (*) before the  name  will
indicate that the entry has changed since the 'versions'  article
in the previous issue of ST NEWS, or that it was added since.
 But let's cut the bullshit.

 If you know of any higher versions than the ones mentioned here,
please  do  not hesitate to write to us.  If it  concerns  Public
Domain  software,  please  take  the  liberty  to  send  us  that
particular  latest version if you feel like it!  The  address  to
send the information/disks to is:

 ST NEWS version update
 Richard Karsmakers
 Looplantsoen 50
 NL-3523 GV  Utrecht
 The Netherlands

 Thank  you  ever so much.  If you send a  long  and  interesting
letter  with it (or IRCs instead) you'll even get your disk  back

 This specific issue's column would not have been quite the  same
without some BBS freaks who have sent me a load of interesting PD
stuff. Most notably, Mark Matts needs to be mentioned here. 

The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
