DCA ANNOUNCES CROSSTALK FOR WINDOWS 2.0

 DCA ANNOUNCES CROSSTALK FOR WINDOWS 2.0
 ALPHARETTA, Ga., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Digital Communications


Associates Inc. (DCA) (NYSE: DCA) today announced Crosstalk for Windows 2.0, enhanced asynchronous communications software for Windows 3.1 that now includes support for Microsoft's Multiple Document Interface (MDI), new terminal emulation and file transfer protocols and DCA's Crosstalk Application Scripting Language (CASL) for Windows.
 "Crosstalk for Windows 2.0 is a new generation of communications software that represents a huge leap forward in providing users with a true graphical user interface," said Gerald W. Buran, DCA's vice president of sales and marketing.
 New features in Crosstalk for Windows 2.0 include support for Microsoft's MDI, allowing users to open and run multiple communications sessions at the same time. Other benefits include the ability to manage the display of multiple communication sessions and edit windows.
 For example, a user may have two communications sessions operating concurrently while simultaneously displaying a Crosstalk editor window and a "QuickPad" -- a custom user-defined key pad utility that allows users to place scripts as well as frequently used keys and macros on a user pad for easy, "point-and-click" mouse access.
 A "QuickBar" provides easy access to frequently used functions by selecting a series of icons. Users can open and/or save profiles, send/receive files, upload text files, run scripts, receive files, take pictures of the screen, capture data to the screen and hide/show "QuickPads."
 Crosstalk for Windows 2.0 also includes new file transfer protocols to ensure access to and information exchange with a wide variety of hosts, including IBM mainframes -- FTTERM and IND$FILE -- bulletin board systems -- ANSI and ZMODEM -- and VAX minicomputers -- DEC VT emulation and Kermit. Terminal emulation support includes DEC VT52, VT100, VT220, VT 320, IBM 3101, FTTERM, VIDTEX (CompuServe), IBM PC (ANSI.SYS), HP-700, WYSE 50, 50+ and 60, Televideo 910, 912, 925, Hazeltine 1500, PC Term and TTY.
 Crosstalk for Windows 2.0 also includes support for CASL, DCA's full-featured scripting application language. With power similar to the popular "C" and Pascal languages, CASL allows users to handle simple log-ons to on-line services such as CompuServe or MCI Mail or automate entire communications sessions and file transfers.
 Users can also run most scripts prepared with Crosstalk Mark 4, DCA's advanced communications program for DOS. In addition, a learn mode creates scripts by monitoring a user's interaction with a host and recording them in a script which can then be run to reproduce the steps or edited to add additional functionality.
 Available later this month through DCA's standard worldwide distribution network, Crosstalk for Windows 2.0 has a suggested retail price of $195 ($235 Canadian). Current users of previous versions of Crosstalk for Windows can upgrade to version 2.0 for $49.
 Pricing outside North America varies depending on the local market.
 Located 30 miles north of Atlanta with offices worldwide, DCA designs, markets, manufactures and supports PC networking products that enhance the productivity of PC users.
