Chrystal Software announced the availability of Astoria version 3.6, along with improved customer support resources. The new version of the Astoria platform provides significant customer benefits in productivity and functionality in this free upgrade for customers with current maintenance agreements. The new customer support resources enable Chrystal customers to get the right information through the medium of their choice: self-service over the Internet, by email, or by phone. Astoria’s new version 3.6 adds a host of new enhancements, including new platform support of Microsoft Windows 2000 and Sun Microsystems’ Solaris 8, improvements in managing and scaling custom attributes, support of XML-styled linked graphics including the reuse and sharing of graphics for multiple documents. The installation and setup of the client bridges to authoring tools, including SoftQuad’s XMetaL, Arbortext’s Epic Editor, and Adobe’s FrameMaker+SGML, have been made easier.
