Subject: World-Wide Web announcements for Nov 92

More goodies for the festive season...apologies for those who get this from
more than one list.

                  WORLD-WIDE WEB NEWS NOVEMBER 1992

   (As usual, this is distributed in plain text form, but the original
   hypertext contains lots of links and may be read as If you don't have
   World-Wide Web software yet, telnet to
   (, and select information about the WorldWide Web.)

Client software

   Three developments on the clients side. Tony Johnson of Boston
   University, developer of the MidasWWW browser for Motif, has ported
   it now to four X11 platforms and has a tar file of sources
   available on Tony also has plans to
   include graphics and text editing in the future.

   Here at CERN, Nicola Pellow is back until the end of the year, and
   has picked up the Mac Browser .  She has a pre-alpha with basic
   functionality up, watch this space for the first release.

   The full-screen client (using curses) has been released by Jim
   Whitescarver of NJIT, see release note for details.

   The NeXTStep client has been revised. The 0.13 version generated
   bad SGML at times, so anyone using it to write hypertext is advised
   to upgrade to 0.14 immediately.  The binary is in

More and more hypertext on line

   New W3 servers have appeared at KVI ad at CWI both in the
   Netherlands, IN2P3  in France, and NCSA  in Illinois, USA.  KVI and
   IN2P3 are both High Energy Physics  institites. All the servers
   have local information as well as various other goodies.

   CWI has a hypertext version of the Gnu documentation and of a guide
   to Audio formats ,  and NCSA has many things including hypertext
   documentation for the X-Collage system.  Two CERN projects to
   produce online hypertext documentation recently are ADAMO and RD13.

   Meanwhile, Cornell Law school have a server  with hypertext of US
   Copyright Law... as law tends to be mostly cross-reference ("as
   defined in Sect1.2.2.(a) above") hypertext makes a lot of sense

Browse the WAIS servers

   It's sometimes been a bit difficult browsing through what there is
   in the WAIS world. Now, looking for information under "types of
   server" on the web will lead you to hypertext lists of WAIS servers
   arranged by name of "source" and by internet domain. These lists
   are generated automatically at CERN from TMC's catalogue. Clicking
   on the source name takes you directly to the index. Currently there
   are 310 databases on 88 hosts accesible.
