 REVELATION TECHNOLOGIES, HUNTER SYSTEMS ANNOUNCE
 ADVANCED REVELATION 2.1 FOR UNIX
 PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Revelation Technologies Inc. and Hunter Systems today announced the immediate availability of Advanced Revelation(R) 2.1 for UNIX. The product is Revelation Technologies' award-winning DOS application development environment and database management system, ported to UNIX using Hunter Systems' XDOS(R) Computer Aided Porting technology. Advanced Revelation's powerful development tools enable developers to efficiently implement multi-user business applications. Advanced Revelation 2.1 for UNIX combines the features and behavior of the DOS-based product with the performance benefits of UNIX.
 With the introduction, developers now can create powerful networked business applications that run unaltered on a wide range of DOS, OS/2 and UNIX platforms.
 Advanced Revelation 2.1 for UNIX is a complete version of Advanced Revelation 2.1 and includes all the key features of this release. All existing Advanced Revelation data entry screens, menus, dictionaries, data tables, programs, reports and procedures work exactly the same under both DOS and UNIX. The Advanced Revelation developer can preserve current files and extend their existing development efforts to the UNIX environment. Furthermore, by retaining all the familiar characteristics of the DOS product, Advanced Revelation 2.1 for UNIX eliminates the need for costly retraining.
 Developers familiar with the product have responded enthusiastically to this compatibility. Ken Kling of GAAP(TM) Financial Software, Burtonsville, Md., notes, "It's the only product I've used in this area that claims one-hundred percent compatibility and delivers it."
 Allowing developers to create Advanced Revelation applications that run unchanged on DOS, OS/2 and UNIX platforms is a major benefit to organizations that need to deploy applications on diverse hardware and software platforms. Said Revelation Technologies' President and CEO James A. Acquaviva, "This product addresses a fundamental need among our customers. Adding UNIX support to Advanced Revelation is an important step in fulfilling our promise of portability, scalability and compatibility. In conjunction with Hunter Systems, we have achieved support for a broad range of UNIX platforms without sacrificing any compatibility with existing Advanced Revelation applications."
 According to Hunter Systems Chairman Colin Hunter, "Advanced Revelation 2.1 for UNIX is a valued addition to Hunter Systems' existing product line. Advanced Revelation is a well-established product, supporting a large number of mission-critical applications. With this product, all of these applications are now immediately available under UNIX."
 As there are currently hundreds of third-party vertical applications written using Advanced Revelation, this ability to run applications unchanged is a major benefit to both application developers and their customers.
 Advanced Revelation 2.1 for UNIX will be marketed, distributed and supported by both Revelation Technologies and Hunter Systems. Its suggested retail price is $1,195. Customers may add additional Advanced Revelation users in five-user increments by purchasing Advanced Revelation Add Pack, available for a suggested retail price of $1,195. Advanced Revelation for UNIX will be available through selected distributors and resellers including Distribupro, E.L.F., Ingram Micro D and Merisel.
