APPLESHARE 4.1 UPDATE KIT INFORMATION
AppleShare 4.1 is the latest release of AppleShare for the Mac OS.  It is also the fastest AppleShare ever.  While AppleShare 4.1 is not PowerPC native, it is tuned to run on PowerPC-based systems and will not install or run on 68K-based Macintosh computers.
 
AppleShare 4.1 runs, on average, 75% faster than AppleShare 4.0.2 on a similarly configured Power Macintosh or Workgroup Server.  All performance data for AppleShare 4.1 is based on a set of internal benchmarks performed by Apple.  These benchmarks consist of a variety of Finder copy operations under varying server load conditions. 

AppleShare 4.1 requires System 7.5 on the server to run and requires System 7.5 and the new AppleShare Workstation 3.6 (included with AppleShare 4.1) on the client systems to achieve the performance gains detailed above.  However, AppleShare 4.1 is compatible with older versions of the AppleShare Workstation software and AppleShare Workstation 3.6 is compatible with older versions of the AppleShare server software.
 
HOW TO ORDER THE APPLESHARE 4.1 UPDATE KIT
Customers in the U.S. wishing to upgrade from AppleShare 4.0.2 to AppleShare 4.1 will need to obtain the AppleShare 4.1 Update Kit (proof of 4.0.2 purchase is required). The update can be obtained by calling Apple at 1-800-769-2775 x7851. This program begins April 24, 1995 and ends December 29, 1995.

€  Customers running AppleShare 4.0.2 on a PowerPC-based Workgroup Server 
   (6150, 8150, or 9150) will receive the AppleShare 4.1 Update Kit for a $15 
   shipping/handling charge only.  These customers will also receive the 
   Workgroup Server Software Update Kit containing System 7.5.1 for Workgroup 
   Servers and Apple RAID 1.0.2.
€  Customer running AppleShare 4.0.2 on a Power Macintosh will receive the 
   AppleShare 4.1 Update Kit for $199 + $15 shipping/handling.
  
The AppleShare 4.1 Update Kit contains the complete AppleShare 4.1 software but no serial number.  Customers must use their existing AppleShare 4.0.2 serial number to activate the server. The AppleShare 4.1 Update Kit will be included with the Workgroup Server 8150/110 and 9150/120 Logic Board Upgrades. 

Outside the U.S., customers should contact their local Apple reseller or representative for information on upgrading to AppleShare 4.1 in their local language.
