HyperStudio 5 player
Software MacKiev has announced the release of a free HyperStudio 5 "Legacy" Player for Mac OS X. The free player, for the first time, allows stacks created in previous editions of HyperStudio to run on Mac OS X. HyperStudio, created by educational technology pioneer Roger Wagner, acquired the HyperStudio brand in June 2007 and has been collaborating with Wagner on the next generation of HyperStudio products. A new edition of the HyperStudio authoring tool, HyperStudio 5, is nearing completion and is being demonstrated this week at the Macworld Expo (booth #826). The HyperStudio 5 Legacy Player for Mac OS X is available immediately free of charge from the Software MacKiev.
The Legacy Player was designed to open and play all HyperStudio stacks created with version 3 and 4, including those made using HyperLogo. It runs on Mac OS X 10.3.9 and later, including Mac OS X 10.5 "Leopard".
