At WWDC, Apple showed running demos of HyperCard 3.0, and the
biggest surprise is that the new version is built around QuickTime
3.0. Essentially, every HyperCard stack becomes a QuickTime movie,
and is playable in any application that can handle QuickTime,
including MoviePlayer, Netscape plug-ins, Cyberdog, and word
processors. Using QuickTime finally gives HyperCard completely
integrated color capabilities as well as cross-platform support
(QuickTime is already well established on Windows). According to
the presentation, existing HyperCard externals will continue to be
usable and there will be Internet-savvy media handlers giving
HyperCard (and QuickTime) the ability to use remote content. Both
QuickTime 3.0 and HyperCard 3.0 are scheduled for release in
spring of 1997.
