NETMANAGE POSTS ON THE INTERNET ITS "WINDOWS SOCKET API" TCP/IP STACK FOR GENERAL DEVELOPERS TESTING; BOLD MOVE FOR ACCEPTANCE OF NEW STANDARD
 CUPERTINO, Calif., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- NetManage Inc. today posted its developer pre-release of NEWT on the Internet. The TCP/IP communications stack and development kit are fully compliant with the Windows Sockets API Standard, previously called Winsock API.
 Developers can now download NetManage's developer version of Windows Sockets TCP/IP stack and test any application developed to this new standard. Also provided are two test applications that test the TCP and DP client and server functionality. Use of the tools is subject to copyright and license limitation provided with the tools.
 Dan Geisler, vice president of NetManage said, "By delivering the pre-release version of our tools to all developers through immediate downloading from the Internet, we can accelerate the acceptance of the Windows Sockets API. By posting it this week, developers will be able to perform testing before the official Windows Sockets compatibility testing scheduled to take place next week in Mountain View, California."
 Windows Sockets API
 The new Windows Sockets API specification defines a standard interface between a Microsoft Windows application and a PCP/IP protocol stack. The specifications were previously known by the code name Winsock API.
 The Windows Sockets API is based on NetManage's original specifications that were submitted to the standards committee. The underlying technology, including message-driven asynchronous- communications, was first shipped by NetManage in September of 1990. NetManage provides a 100 percent Windows DLL (Dynamic Link Library) TCP/IP stack.
 Applications developed using NEWT-SDK will be compatible with Windows Sockets stacks from any other vendor. Starting today, developers need to buy only one development kit to write applications to Windows Sockets compliant stacks.
 In addition to the Windows Socket, NEWT-SDK facilitates development using the FTP, SMTP and SNMP DLLs.
 Upgrade Path Available
 Current users of NEWT TCP/IP software can upgrade to take full advantage of the powerful new features of NEWT by purchasing the NEWT upgrade.
 NEWT and NEWT-SDK run on both Windows 3.0 and 3.1.
 The regular price of NEWT-SDK is $500 at a quantity of one. The price of NEWT is $60 at a quantity of 100. Both products are now shipping.
 NetManage Inc. develops, markets and supports network communications tools for the Windows environment.
