QUARTERDECK SHIPS QEMM VERSION 7, MANIFEST VERSION 2, DESQview VERSION 2.6 AND DESQview 386 VERSION 2.6

 New QEMM Features More Memory Free for Programs, MS-DOS 6 Multiple Configuration and DoubleSpace Support, Enhanced MS Windows Support, Ease
 of Setup, Enhanced Hardware Compatibility Including Pentium
 SANTA MONICA, Calif., June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Quarterdeck Office Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: QDEK) today announced the release and shipment of version 7 of the Quarterdeck Expanded Memory Manager (QEMM), the No. 1 selling memory manager for DOS and Microsoft Windows users, as well as new versions of its Manifest system analysis program and its DESQview and DESQview 386 DOS multitaskers. The new versions of all of the products feature advances in memory management, network support and enhanced hardware compatibility.
 QEMM version 7 offers significant gains in the amount of memory free for running programs through its new DOS-Up feature that moves the DOS kernel, resources and data above 640K freeing 7-70K, its Stealth DoubleSpace feature that frees 40K of memory on systems running Microsoft's DOS 6 DoubleSpace disk compressor, and its VIDRAM for Windows feature that provides as much as 736K for running DOS text programs inside MS Windows.
 QEMM 7 also offers support for DOS 6 multiple configuration files, enhanced MS Windows, Stacker and SuperStor support, express installation, a new QEMM Setup feature for changing QEMM parameters, editing configuration files and getting online help and hints, built-in DPMI support, and enhanced hardware compatibility including Pentium, battery-powered notebooks and bus-mastering controllers.
 "Each year memory management becomes more and more important," said Therese E. Myers, president/chief executive officer and co-founder of Quarterdeck. "Now with MS-DOS 6 and its memory-intensive utilities, with multimedia PCs and their hardware drivers for CD ROMs and sound, not to mention networks with the need for enterprise computing, there's less and less memory free to run programs. QEMM 7's purpose is to alleviate these problems.
 "With QEMM 7, we have once again made important memory management breakthroughs," continued Myers. "Whereas in past releases we concentrated on finding every usable address of memory, in QEMM 7 we concentrated on breaking through the memory boundaries to be able to run more TSRs and drivers than there are available addresses. Our Stealth DoubleSpace feature is a breakthrough of this kind."
 Also released today is Manifest version 2, which is included with QEMM 7 and DESQview, or can be purchased separately. The new version of Manifest provides reporting and analysis of networks, battery-support, the Pentium processor and MS Windows. In response to user request, Manifest also supports the editing of configuration files.
 The new releases of DESQview and DESQview 386 feature enhanced network support, including support for Netware Lite and LANtastic servers and other peer-to-peer networks, as well as "under-the-hood" compatibility and performance enhancements. Both DESQview and DESQview 386 include Manifest. DESQview 386 also includes QEMM 7.
 QEMM 7 is also incorporated into DESQview/X version 1.1. Users who purchased DESQview/X 1.1 after April 15, 1993, can receive an upgrade to QEMM 7 for $5 shipping and handling.
 The suggested list price of QEMM 7 is $99.95. In the United States upgrades for QEMM 7 are available both directly from Quarterdeck and from dealers. The upgrade price direct from Quarterdeck for QEMM 7 is $35.00 plus $5 shipping and handling. The suggested list price of the upgrade through dealers is $39.95.
