Since they (the Genetics Computer Group people) didn't know last time I asked,
I can't provide an answer either. At that time, they were hoping for mid-1994,
but as some of the timing was due to factors outside their control, I would
look to them for updates on the release date.

In August, I previewed a pre-alpha release which had some functionality built
into it. It looked pretty good to me. My demo was running on their machine in
Madison and displaying on my OS/2 PC running IBM's TCP/IP and PMX packages in
Omaha Nebraska.  Since it worked fine in that kind of environment, I presume it
is generic X, and thus it shouldn't matter what platform you are running, it
should work.
