 SPINNAKER SOFTWARE SHIPS PERSONAL ACCESS VERSION 1.5:
 Paradox, ORACLE, SQL Server, dBASE and Btrieve versions shipping;
 Simpler and faster query capability streamlines database access;
 Version 1.5 fully compatible with Windows 3.1
 CAMBRIDGE, Mass., June 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Spinnaker Software Corporation (NASDAQ: SPKR) announced today that it has begun shipping PERSONAL ACCESS Version 1.5 -- its database access and development tool that cuts time, complexity and cost of accessing corporate information and creating customized reports. Version 1.5 provides end-users with a combination of additional database support, a simpler and faster query interface, improved performance and on-line tutorial.
 PERSONAL ACCESS Version 1.5 supports many of the major corporate database products. New with Version 1.5 is ORACLE and Paradox support, in addition to SQL Server, Sybase, dBASE and Btrieve. Earlier this year, Spinnaker Software and Micro Decisionware, Inc. announced a joint agreement to develop PERSONAL ACCESS as a front end to MDI's Database Gateway for DB2 which will be available later this year.
 With PERSONAL ACCESS, individuals can, without any knowledge of SQL, networks, programming or PLUS, on a first try build a query to access corporate data in less than five minutes using only a few clicks of the mouse.
 In making the announcement, Dave Thurman, Spinnaker Software vice president and PLUS Division manager, said, "With the advances in this latest version of PERSONAL ACCESS, we have greatly reduced technical barriers to access information from multiple databases which directly increases corporate performance and productivity by making it easy to access timely information. By working with our PERSONAL ACCESS Version 1.0 users, we have been able to enhance the product to make it even more accessible to non-technical business professionals." PERSONAL ACCESS Enhancements
 PERSONAL ACCESS Version 1.5 offers end-users a combination of improved performance and user interface enhancements including database access speed, a simpler and faster query process and an on-line tutorial. With Version 1.5, access speed to the server databases including SQL Server and Sybase has been greatly improved. Also new to Version 1.5 is the addition of an on-line tutorial which usually guides the user throughout the query process from creating a simple query to working with and joining tables, and executing more complex queries and reports. PERSONAL ACCESS Includes Spinnaker PLUS
