**Open Transport 1.1b16 Public Beta** -- Apple has a released a
public beta of Open Transport 1.1, which addresses many existing
problems plus runs on both 68K and Power Macintosh machines. The
beta is unsupported (so you can't ask Apple for help) and is only
recommended for experienced users familiar with their network
configuration; however, users of PCI Power Macs might be
particularly interested in the release. The beta does not function
on Performa 5200, 5300, 6200, and 6300 computers, along with the
Macintosh IIvi, and Apple also recommends against installing it on
the PowerBook 190, 2300, and 5300, or on PowerBook 540s running
System 7.5.2. Be sure to check out the ReadMe files and notes
before installing; so far, reports I've seen indicate that the
beta is functioning well. There are two installations available,
one with a set of floppy disk images and one as an all-in-one Net
Install; both are a little over 2.5 MB in size. [GD]

SO in other words 9 different computers in all they can't figure out how to
get their software to work with.


P.S. Wantto fuck with a Apple employee? Ask them if "Copland" the new
savior OS will suport IP multicasting in the kernal. Watch them grow short
of breath, watch them sweat and shake, watch them explain how if it is
"standard" it will, but they havn't heard of it.
