The Legal Information Institute is pleased (well, _mildly_ 
pleased) to announce the release of version 1.01a of Cello, an 
Internet browser for MS-Windows. 

The new version is available from ftp.law.cornell.edu in the 
/pub/LII/Cello directory.

1.01a is essentially a maintenance release which repairs a 
number of reported problems, including misbehavior with Gopher+ 
servers and improper handling of text/plain documents in 
certain situations.

For those of you not familiar with Cello:

What is Cello?
Cello is a multipurpose Internet browser which permits you to 
access information from many sources in many formats.  
Technically, it's a WorldWideWeb client application.  This 
means that you can use Cello to access data from WorldWideWeb, 
Gopher, FTP, and CSO/ph/qi servers, as well as X.500 directory 
servers, WAIS servers, HYTELNET, TechInfo, and others through external 
gateways.  You can also use Cello and the WWW-HTML hypertext 
markup standard to build local hypertext systems on LANS, on 
single machines, and so on.  Cello also permits the 
postprocessing of any file for which you've set up an 
association in the Windows File Manager -- for example, if you 
download an uncompressed Microsoft Word file from an FTP site, 
and the appropriate association exists in File Manager, Cello 
will run MS-Word on it for you.  This same capability is used 
to view graphics and listen to sound files you get from the Net.

What you need to run it
To run Cello, you need the files in the CELLO.ZIP archive, plus some 
flavor of Winsock TCP/IP stack -- a piece of "middleware" which 
communicates with the Net.  Cello works with all of the popular 
Winsock packages, although some trouble has been reported with 
certain implementations (see the README in the ZIP archive).  You will, of course, need 
to be directly connected to the network or have access to a 
SLIP or PPP server, depending on which of these your Winsock 
package supports.

Cello runs on any hardware with a 386SX chip or better.  We 
have seen it run with 2Mb RAM (with swapping on) on a 
386/SX-16, but it's not a pretty sight.  We recommend a minimum 
of 4 MB RAM.  You will want to install -- if you haven't already --
a video driver which supports 256-color operation.

Have fun with it,
