Cello beta version 0.4 is now available on
fatty.law.cornell.edu, directory pub/LII/Cello.

The new version fixes the following:

-- Assorted GPFs resulting primarily from Developer Silliness.
(scattered reports)

-- Problems with quoting of SRC attribute in <IMG> tags. Net
result was an inability to retrieve image files on some
(reported by Alert Cellist Nick Williams)

-- Text, title, and status bar backgrounds are now set to match
Windows system color, rather than defaulting to white.
(reported by Alert Cellist Nick Williams)

-- Complete Windows crash caused by jumps to "empty" or
unavailable Gopher links is now fixed.
(reported by Alert Cellists Paul Birch and Lars Johansen)

-- Isolated WAIS crashes repaired
(reported by Alert Cellist Paul Birch, who will now be able
to read the Bluegrass archives undisturbed)

-- Problems with whitespace in files mailed to someone.

There are numerous small UI enhancements, no one of which is
worth writing up. I have also made a few small changes to the
default home page, where there was at least one incorrect URL.

Unsolved mysteries of science:

The Machine from Hell at Cornell continues to suffer from
FTP hangs on files > 4K bytes. It appears that the upcall
mechanism isn't working correctly. Anyone suffering from this
problem please contact me directly.

Viewer news:

A Windows MPEG viewer is available at
There are assorted files to get depending on your video
hardware. It seems to run OK with Cello, but not
necessarily with my video hardware (grin). Anybody who
wants to do some experimentation and report to CELLO-L is
hereby warmly invited to do so.
