 "A  Puritan  is  someone  who is  deathly  afraid  that  someone
somewhere is having fun."

                         VERSION UPDATE

 The fifth occurrence of this regular column here:  A summary  of
all  current  version numbers of specific  utility  programs,  as
available  to  my  knowledge  at the time  of  this  issue  being
  It has to be noted that the following list is  compiled  almost
solely on my knowledge,  and may therefore indeed not be very up-
to-date  as my scope of view is only limited.  I have  not  based
this list on rumours,  and therefore the version number listed is
that  of  the  latest version actually seen by me or  any  of  my
direct acquaintances.
 Versions  rumoured  to  exist  will,   if  any,   be   mentioned
additionally between round brackets ("-" means "specific  version
number   not  known,   however"  -  I  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 drop me a line (or,  even better, quite
a few lines).  If it concerns Public Domain software, please take
the liberty to send me that particular latest version if you feel
like  it!   Please  send  anything  you  care  to  send  to   the
correspondence address, mentioned elsewhere in ST NEWS.
 If  you  send  a long and interesting letter with  it  (or  IRCs
instead) you'll even get your disk back (probably). 

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 Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated.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.
