Open Market Releases Mac Version of Folio

Open Market Inc. released version 4.11 of its Folio Publisher and Folio Views software for the Macintosh operating system, supporting Mac OS 7.5 and above.

Both Folio Publisher and Folio Views will now be able to run on Microsoft Windows and Macintosh platforms, the company explained.

"This release is an important step in satisfying the needs of all professional information users, regardless of the operating system they choose," said Ellen Brezniak, vice president of marketing for Open Market Folio products. "Many of our commercial publishers have a devoted following of Macintosh users who need the same information access technology we provide to PC users."

Folio software works to enable the secure distribution of professional information in electronic format, with rich searching, navigation and personalization capabilities. The Open Market family of Folio 4 products is designed for creating information management applications, distributing and accessing professional reference information and securing information, controlling remote access, and metering its use.

Folio Publisher is a redistribution license and software solution for commercial publishers who need to bundle robust information retrieval software with their content. Folio Views is a high-end access and retrieval product designed for professional information users. Its primary use is for fast, off- line text searching within very large free-format information collections, the firm said.

Open Market, known for its Transact e-commerce engine, provides high-performance application software products and professional services that allow its customers to engage in business-to-consumer and business-to-business e-commerce, information commerce, and commercial publishing.
