About Anastasia 2.0

Version 2 of Anastasia, released in May 2003, is the result of a near-complete rewrite of the core routines underlying the program. The basic architecture of the program remains unchanged, and all files made with previous versions of the program will run without alteration, or with very little alteration. However, ‘under the hood’ almost everything is different. Our aim was to make Anastasia run securely and fast, in the most demanding server environments, with very large quantities of data. Here are some of the major differences:

All this has not come entirely without a price. We have had to abandon the Macintosh Classic environment (after eighteen years of programming for it!) Finally, Classic just would not support the memory and server functions we needed. However, the compensation - the remarkable Macintosh OS X - is more than adequate.
