Installer VISE 7.1 adds even more support for Mac OS X installs
SAN FRANCISCO - January 9, 2001: MindVision Software has provided Mac OS X installation solutions since May 2000. Now, with the release of Installer VISETM 7.1 at Macworld Expo, it's even easier to build install targets to both Classic Mac OS and Mac OS X.
"MindVision has always provided developers with rock-solid installation solutions ahead of the competition. With this new release of Installer VISE we have incorporated seven months of feedback from Mac OS X developers and users to provide a polished, mature solution for building Classic Mac OS and Mac OS X installers," said MindVision CTO Steve Kiene. "MindVision has always invested heavily in Apple's future, and our support for Mac OS X is no exception. As our competition scales back their software delivery solutions, we continue to add more value to our product line."
