Does White Pine getting the commercial license to CU-SeeMe mean that there
will be NO new Mac version until the end of 1995? ACK!

Certainly the Cornell team could add the discussed feature (three AppleEvents
and the ability to start a connection from a .csm file) in a matter of hours.
I will be happy to write the code (as I will have to add it to WelcomeMat
anyway - since WelcomeMat, if running, MUST be used to launch CU-SeeMe...)
only the sources to CU-SeeMe are not available. Shall I write in skelatal
form and ship it off to someone?

Actually, the method should be standardized now so that Windows and Mac
versions will use the same connection files and the same mime type. As for
the method - what other way is there on the Mac than AppleEvents if you
want to be a Web Browser helper app?
