Subject: MMM, a Web browser with applets in Caml (release 0.30beta)

It is my pleasure to announce a new release of the MMM Web browser 

MMM is a free WWW browser written in Caml Special Light, using Tcl/Tk for
the user interface.

This is mostly a bug fix release, although some new features have been added
(more HTTP support, XMP and LISTING HTML elements, revised user-interface,
capability system for applet libraries,...).

The main characterics of MMM as a Web browser are:
  * supports HTML2.0 level 2 (including forms)
  * multi-window, asynchronous
  * applets in Caml Special Light
  Applets are CSL bytecode files, stored on a web server, retrieved by
  the browser and dynamically linked into the browser.
  Applets bring a new dimension to the Web: documents can now be made

The license is now somewhat more permissive, especially concerning
distribution of derived work.

For more informations: <URL:>
The distribution is at
Binaries for sparcs (SunOS 4.1.x, Solaris 5.5), alphas (DEC OSF) and 
i486 (linux a.out) are available, as well as complete source distribution.
MMM is known to run on various other Unix/X-Windows platforms (HPUX, SGI
