Today the MIT X Consortium made available the contributed half of
the X Window System, Version 11, Release 5.  This final contrib
tape replaces the preliminary contrib software offered last month
with the core of Release 5.

This software was contributed to the X Consortium by numerous
individuals and companies.  It is intended to be used with the
core X software, but is not developed or maintained by MIT.

The contrib software takes up approximately 140 megabytes of
storage.  A brief walk-through of the software packages included
is in the file contrib/ on the contrib tape.

Sites that have network file transfer ability can retrieve both
the contrib and core release from the network location nearest
them (listed below).  If you are unable to retrieve the release
from the network, or if you want to obtain printed copies of the
documentation, the MIT Software Center provides sets of tapes
and documentation.  Tapes are available in 6250bpi reel-to-reel
and QIC-24 cartridge formats.  Write to
