Saturday's release of Mac OS 9 dictates the tone for this issue, with in-depth coverage of Apple's latest version of the Mac OS. Geoff Duncan first looks at Mac OS 9 installation and compatibility issues and then focuses on three major features in Mac OS 9: Sherlock 2, Multiple Users, and the Keychain. Tune in next week for more Mac OS 9 coverage. Also this week, we cover the releases of Action Menus 1.0, Microsoft Outlook Express 5.0, and iDo Script Scheduler 1.1.
