Computer Concepts today announced availability and pricing for upgrades to make most of our product range compatible with the StrongARM. Some existing products will work on StrongARM machines without modification, but most will require an upgrade.
Although the bulk of our product range has been tested, where upgrades have been written there is still some work to be done on creating new installers. No upgrades are available at the time of writing; we hope to have most of these upgrades ready to ship by the end of next week: October 4 1996.
Where products have been tested and found to work, it is the latest pre-StrongARM version of the software that has been tested. Earlier versions may work, but have not been tested.
We are looking at the feasibility of putting the upgrades which we provide at cost (£10) on our Web site for free download. We will post more details as soon as possible.
This press release is correct as of September 25. There is a copy of this list in the products section which will be kept up-to-date as we get more information. Please add the copy to your hotlist in preference to this release, which will not be updated. We also have a StrongARM question and answer document which will also be updated with the most frequently asked questions about our StrongARM products. This page also has some speed comparisons for our software running on the StrongARM.
As mentioned above, although upgrades for these products have been written, we are still writing installers. We hope to be able to ship working upgrades by October 4 at the latest.

The following upgrades are available for £23 + VAT (£27.02). All versions are de-dongled. If you have already bought a de-dongled version of these products, they are available at a discounted price of £19 + VAT (£22.32).
