DataViz has announced MacLinkPlus Deluxe 13 for Mac OS X.

The Carbonized application includes support for recent updates to Microsoft Office, including Office 2001 for Mac and Office XP for Windows. The application will open documents and permit them to be manipulated without needing the application that created them.

It sports an Aquafied look-&-feel to match Mac OS X, and will open files from a variety of Mac and Windows applications. MacLinkPlus Deluxe sits in the Dock for easy access, and is more stable, thanks to OS X's protected memory.

The application also supports Excel 2001 for the Mac and Word and Excel 2002 for Office XP. It will also work on Mac OS 8.1 or above, as well as in Classic mode in OS X. Version 13 costs $99.95, with an upgrade from previous versions available for $39.95. UK pricing is unavailable at this time.

MacLinkPlus Deluxe 12 costs £112 in the UK and is available from Computers Unlimited. Nova International also distributes DataViz products in the UK.
