Richmond, VA - October, 1995.  Nova Design, Inc.  announced that it has now
unbundled GIF support from it's premier product; ImageFX, and released it
as a set of public domain modules.

This follows on the announcement earlier this year by Unisys that it would
be enforcing it's patent on the compression system used in Compuserve's GIF
graphic format and requiring a licensing fee for all commercial uses.

The new GIF modules include support for GIF89 specifications for
transparency and interlace mode, making these ideal for Web page graphic

The modules will be available soon on all major computer network services,
including the Internet's Aminet FTP sites in biz/patch.
