Hi all,

This is to let you know that  version 1.0 of PreceptorTools courseware 
development system was released today. Free 30 day downloads are 
available both on the Run Rev web site and on my website as well. 
PreceptorTools may be purchased online at the Runtime Revolution online 
store beginning today!

I would like to take the opportunity to thank everyone at Runtime 
Revolution for their support and encouragement the last year and a 
half. I would also like to thank my Beta testers for their hard work 
and commitment.  Finally, I want to thank the members of this list who 
helped me understand the subtleties and power of Revolution.

The current version is optimized for Mac OS Classic (9.2 preferred ) 
and Mac OSX (10.2.6 or > preferred) Revolution 2.0 or greater is 
required if you wish to use PreceptorTools automated email features.  
Finally Quicktime 5.0 or greater is required if you wish to use the 
buttonPlayer objects or the movieQuiz objects that are part of the 
PreceptorTools Object Toolkits.

I plan to offer a Windows distribution early this coming year.  If 
anyone here would like to be a Windows Beta tester please contact me 
off list.  Preceptor is a set of stacks and a plug in so it should work 
OK within the windows environment.  Some users have found the Beta 
stable others have had lots of problems.  So if you download it you are 
on your own for the meantime. I will not be addressing any windows 
related questions until the formal testing regime begins after the new 

If you have any questions comments or problems with PreceptorTools 
please feel free to join the use-preceptorTools list.  Initially, this 
will be the location where I will handle preceptorTools support.  To 
sign up go here:  
There is also a comprehensive web-based reference for PreceptorTools on 
my website. While this is still in the development process it does 
contain the definitive reference to the application.  If you can't find 
the answer to a question regarding PreceptorTools don't hesitate to 
contact me. I am currently the only person working on the development 
of this project so I may not be able to get back to your personal email 
right away.  I will do my best to answer within a day or so.

Best regards to you all and thanks again for your help.
