       !!!!! GEM-View version 3.10 is on this Disk !!!!!

This version runs with HighColor and TrueColor cards and has been tested
on the Falcon 030, Spektrum1TC, Crazy Dots, Matrix true-color card, Nova 16M
and the CyReL M16-1280 (Cybercube Canada).

Please note that problems can occur if you use Chameleon to load GEM-View!
SEE ALSO: 'GraphicMode' in CHANGES, if you experience problems with
HighColor or TrueColor.

The authors make NO WARRANTY or representation, either express or implied,
with respect to this software, its quality, accuracy, merchantability, or
fitness for a particular purpose.

This software is based in part on the work of the Independent JPEG
Group, which is copyright (C) 1991, 1992, Thomas G. Lane. All Rights Reserved.
The authors accept NO LIABILITY for damages of any kind.

Run 'GVW_INS2.APP' to install GEM-View >=3.00 and type in your registration-
number, your name and your code/key. Take care to type your name precisely,
observing capital/non-capital letters, spaces and special characters.
The program will then be automatically registered in your name.

During this process you may, if you wish, instal the programs in
a directory other than the source directory. To do this, click on the empty
box below the word "Pfad:" and choose the destination directory from the
resulting selection box.

The contents of the archives (GVW_V???.PAX, GVW_DOC?.PAX, GVW_TOL?.PAX and
GVW_PIC?.PAX) can be seen below together with details of the subdirectories
which will be created.

Some special notes:
  o A once-and-for-all depacking and installation process, which is not
    dependent on your computer type, is all that is required.
    After installation you can use all the files normally.
  o You can start the installation from Floppy Disk, RAM-Disk or Hard-Disk.
    It is, however, essential that the archives ( the .PAX files ) are in
    the same directory as 'GVW_INST.APP'.
  o Before an existing file is overwritten, you will be asked for confirmation
    to proceed.
  o Using 'GVW_INST.APP' doesn't modify the archives so you can copy this
    disk after installation and send it to a friend! ;-)

  If you registered an earlier version of GEM-View, and do not know your
  code/key, you can obtain it as follows:-

  o Send me a letter with two CRI (international reply coupons), which
    you can get at your post-office, saying that you want to know
    your code/key. In this case your full name will be enough but please
    write clearly and legibly!

Use the registration-number '000000' in the installation process to get
an unregistered version of GEMVIEW.
This version can then be tested for the next 30 days!

 - [3.01]: Minor changes

 - [3.00]: (22nd October 1993 [Happy Birthday!])
    New release of GEM-View! Praise, criticism (preferably constructive),
    suggestions for improvement to my address. The future holds the
    development on an interesting series of ideas, which I hope will meet
    with general approval. I hope also that the "Trararis" will stand with
    us. Questions about the modular programming by telephone. (Only Satur-
    days 14-16 o'clock, i do not speak english well!) And i hope to get hold
    of produced modules so that they can be added immediatly to GEM-View!
    (Better bit by bit ;-)
    !!! ATTENTION: Choose the right folder for your modules using
                   "Install path... ^Z" and save the configuration!
    !!! ATTENTION: The structures for the modul-interface are changed!
    It is advisable to use the program WinX2.1 with the Falcon, because
    there's an unpleasant flaw in TOS which has affect that the operating
    system hangs when one has more than 15 windows open. This certainly
    happens with TOS 4.04. It doesn't seem to me to be sensible to limit
    GEM-View, so please be on your guard against this or instal WinX2.2.
    The operating system flaw is going to be eliminated in the new TOS
    release an no longer occurs under MultiTOS.
