We invite you to set up and explore inhabited Web sites with the new
0.7 beta release of the Virtual Places software. Beta versions of the
Sesame Navigator and Doors Server are now available for Sparc
stations running SunOS 4.1.3 and Solaris 2.3, HP9000/7XX series running
HP/UX9.X, and Silicon Graphics Indy (SGI) running IRIX 5.2. Sesame for
Windows will be available during 1Q95.

Check the following sites for the software:

* on the Web at

* anonymous ftp at or - take the file
pub/outgoing/sesame/open_sesame for the Sesame Navigator and
pub/outgoing/doors_server/open_doors for the Doors Server.
(Make the files executable using <chmod +x> and run.)

A change in port assignments has caused an incompatibility between beta
versions 0.6 and 0.7. Therefore, if you have previously installed
version 0.6 of either the Doors Server or Sesame Navigator, we suggest
that you upgrade to prevent confusion.

Additional information about Ubique and Virtual Places is available at
our virtual headquarters <>. You are welcome to
meet our staff there, using Sesame. A copy of the software Release
Notes is available by sending email to with the
following in the subject line: release
