Dataviz has released MacLinkPlus 12, the new version of its document-conversion utility.

MacLinkPlus can translate text, spreadsheets, databases, images and compressed files between numerous Mac and PC formats. New in version 12 is the ability to convert AppleWorks 6 as well as WordPerfect 9, Quattro Pro 9 and Lotus 1-2-3 Millennium file formats.

The revised application offers enhanced viewing support for QuickTime, GIF and JPEG files. MacLinkPlus 12 is "AppleScriptable", so batch or regular image-conversion routines can be set up. Stuffit 5.5 is also supported.

Registered users can download an upgrade to version 12 for $39.95. A full version is available for $99.95.
