 CLARIS INTRODUCES FILEMAKER PRO 2.0 FOR WINDOWS AND
 MACINTOSH; APPLE SUBSIDIARY'S LAUNCH INTO WINDOWS MARKET
 SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Claris Corp. today introduced FileMaker Pro 2.0 software for Windows and Macintosh, providing power without programming to database users. Filemaker Pro 2.0 for Windows is the first database product to deliver the graphical user interface (GUI) benefits of Windows.
 The new Macintosh version adds more than 50 new features, including much more powerful scripting, extensive System 7 capabilities and multimedia support, to the No. 1 database manager for Macintosh.
 The new product is the second Windows application from Claris, the software subsidiary of Apple Computer Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) and the first one developed internally.
 With its superior graphical user interface and sophisticated database power, FileMaker Pro 2.0 provides the tools, high-quality output and immediate productivity that Windows users most want. Since no programming knowledge is required, even new users can be immediately productive -- yet power is not sacrificed for ease of use. FileMaker Pro 2.0 provides advanced features not otherwise available without hiring a professional database consultant.
 "By combining our graphical user interface strengths with the breakthrough power of FileMaker Pro 2.0, Claris plans to bring unique solutions to the rapidly growing Windows market," said Daniel L. Eilers, president and CEO of Claris.
 Eilers said Claris will follow the announcement of FileMaker Pro 2.0 with an aggressive marketing and sales campaign. Claris is the second-largest worldwide supplier of software for the Macintosh, where it is well-known for its family of powerful and easy-to-use products. To spread the news about its new Windows products to the broader world of IBM PC and compatible users, Claris will start its biggest ad campaign ever at PC Expo this month. The campaign will kick into high gear when the new products ship this fall. Immediate Power Without Programming
 FileMaker Pro 2.0 lets even novice database users enjoy immediate productivity via its superior interface and other features:
 -- Intuitive screen and reports design makes it easy to view data in a variety of formats.
 -- Flexible report editing allows for creation of high-impact output with simple graphical tools.
 -- Intelligent fields: data entry is speeded with easy-to-use radio buttons, check-boxes, pop-up lists and menus.
 -- User-definable buttons let frequent and complex tasks be performed with one click.
 -- ScriptMaker(TM), a revolutionary mouse-driven approach to scripting any task.
 For the increasing number of businesses where sharing information among PCs and Macintosh systems is crucial, Claris has defined a new standard for how applications should work cross-platform. FileMaker Pro 2.0 for Windows and FileMaker Pro 2.0 for Macintosh are similar where they should be similar, and optimized for each platform where it makes sense. Windows users will find that FileMaker Pro 2.0 strictly conforms to all Windows interface guidelines and supports specific Windows features. Early Users Praise Power, Ease of FileMaker Pro 2.0 for Windows
 Users who are taking part in Claris' most extensive beta-testing program ever are praising the product's power and ease of use. "The FileMaker Pro 2.0 interface is superb. This is a product that has been sorely needed within the PC market," said Andrew Cemelli, president of Concepts and Keystrokes, Fairlawn, N.J.
 The U.S. suggested retail price -- $399 -- is the same for the Windows and Macintosh versions, which will be available in Fall 1992. For more information on FileMaker Pro 2.0 or other Claris products, call 408-727-8227.
