MacWise emulates ADDS Viewpoint, Wyse 50, Wyse 60, Wyse 370, Televideo TV 925, DEC VT100 and Prism terminals. Esprit III color is also supported in Wyse 370 mode. MacWise allows a Macintosh to be used as a terminal -- connected to a host computer directly or via modem. The emulators support video attributes such as dim, reverse, underline, 132-column modes, and graphic characters sent from the host computer, as well as enhanced Viewpoint mode. Features include phone list and dialer for Hayes-compatible modems, on-screen programmable function keys and more.

What is new in version 15.4:
Added support for MacBook Pro Touch Bar function keys.
Some MacBook Pro models have a Touch Bar instead of real function keys.
By default, the function keys will not appear in the Touch Bar.
To activate them, select "Activate Touch Bar on Startup" from the Connection Menu.
Then follow the instructions.

What is new in version 14.3.6:
Direct PCL Printing - Another linefeed fix.
What is new in version 14.3.5:
Fix - Direct PCL Printing - Linefeeds were not working correctly If Pass Control Characters to Printer was enabled in Printer Setup.
"Pass Control Characters to Printer (Direct PCL Printing)" allows the host to send PCL commands when slave printing. PCL commands allow the host to select printing features such as bold text, lines per inch, margins, etc. This mode bypasses the standard Mac print dialog box and prints directly to the Mac default printer.

- Fix - Lasso text into clipboard was difficult to see the outline of the lassoed area.
- Now easier to see on black background with transparency.
- Changed default for white background to be no transparency. (too much transparency makes the lasso outline disappear).
- Note that you can reduce the transparency of the window under the Window Menu.
What is new in version 14.2.7:
Fix - Prevent the mouse scrollwheel from scrolling MacWise if it is in the background. The symptom was that the MacWise screen would clear and it would scroll all the way back to the first page in the scroll buffer. This could happen if you were using another app and accidently scrolled the mouse while it was over the inactive MacWise window.
