This was the press release at UniForum.  I don't have any additional
information.  Non-US customers will probably have to contact the local
Apple office for information about upgrade plans in your country.

Apple Announces A/UX 3.0 Update Program

Dateline:
UNIFORUM, SAN FRANCISCO, California--January 22, 1992

Product Description:

A/UX, Apple's version of the industry-standard UNIX operating system
for the Macintosh personal computer, gives users access to the
intuitive Macintosh desktop within the UNIX environment.  With A/UX,
users can simultaneously run multiple Macintosh productivity
applications, UNIX applications, X Window System applications and MS-
DOS applications (using SoftPC from Insignia Solutions, Inc.) on one
desktop.

A/UX 3.0, Apple's latest version of UNIX, offers customers new
features:

--It further integrates Macintosh power and ease-of-use features
ranging from full System 7 functionality to support for the
high-performance Macintosh Quadra computers, with industry-standard
UNIX.

--It will be the first version of system software from Apple that
integrates QuickTime, the revolutionary extension to Macintosh and
A/UX system software products that provides exciting new multimedia
capabilities such as sound, video and animation.

--It is the stepping stone for a smooth migration path to the PowerOpen
environment--a new, open-systems environment created by Apple and IBM's
recent alliance, that will offer customers and developers an
easy-to-use, standards- based, high-performance system.


Significance:

Through Apple's A/UX 3.0 Update Program, U.S. customers who purchase
A/UX 2.0.1 on a CD-ROM, floppy disks or preinstalled on an A/UX-
