CLARIS ANNOUNCES CLARISWORKS 2.0 FOR MACINTOSH; NEW VERSION EXTENDS LEAD OF THE NO. 1-SELLING MAC 'WORKS' PROGRAM

 SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Claris Corp. today announced ClarisWorks 2.0, the complete productivity solution for business, education and home. ClarisWorks 2.0 extends the lead of the No. 1-selling Mac "Works" program with clearly superior integration and ease of use, and more functionality than any other integrated product in the Macintosh market.
 Shipping in the United States later this month, the new version adds three completely new capabilities to the program and more than 300 productivity enhancements to the existing environments. In addition, push-button Shortcuts make ClarisWorks 2.0 even easier to use than the original award-winning version. And users of PowerBooks and lower-end Macintoshes will find that compactness and speed have not been compromised: at under 600K, the application is still the smallest in the integrated category and as fast as ever.
 "ClarisWorks 1.0 was a breakthrough product in the integrated category; ClarisWorks 2.0 sets yet a higher standard for this market," said Dick Gorman, vice president of worldwide marketing at Claris. "It now offers the breadth of capabilities and depth of features to meet the demands of not only small business, K-12 educators and home users, but also corporate business and higher education users."
 New Capabilities for the Generalist
 ClarisWorks 2.0 includes new capabilities to address the day-to-day demands of most generalist computer users who produce a range of documents and need to manage information. A new outlining feature gives users a choice of seven outline formats -- including Harvard, legal and numeric -- to easily organize their thoughts. And since the outliner is integrated into the word processing environment, it is simple to create entire documents in outline format.
 Adding graphical impact to memos or newsletters is now easier than ever with new color paint capabilities. With the 25-color painting tools and effects, it is simple to create striking illustrative effects or edit scanned images.
 Shortcuts Enhance Ease of Use
 ClarisWorks 2.0 features a new Shortcuts option that offers users unique push-button access to frequently used commands. Users can perform 150 tasks from spell checking to formatting spreadsheet cells by simply clicking an icon from the floating, dockable Shortcuts palette.
 Standard-Setting Integration
 The superior integration of ClarisWorks 1.0 that set the standard for Works software remains the cornerstone of ClarisWorks 2.0. First introduced in November 1991, ClarisWorks 1.0 became the top-selling Macintosh integrated product within six months and had sold more than a half million units by the end of 1992. It has also won numerous awards from industry publications such as MacWEEK, Macworld and Byte.
 ClarisWorks 1.0 achieved this market success by delivering clearly superior integration that lets users access tools and features all on the same page. And it is still the only integrated program that allows users to combine, edit and display text, tables, charts, graphics, bit-mapped images and spreadsheets within a single document.
 Pricing Information
 The price of ClarisWorks 2.0 remains unchanged from the original version. In the United States, the suggested retail price is $299. Upgrades from ClarisWorks 1.0 are $99. A $129 competitive trade-up price is also being offered through Sept. 30, 1993.
