Dear Rhino User,

Rhino Beta build 21-Mar-97 is now available from:
ftp://ftp.antelope.com/pub/rhino/rhino32.exe (Southern California)
ftp://ftp.rhino3d.com/pub/rhino/rhino32.exe (Seattle)
ftp://ftp.azteccad.co.uk/software/aztec/rhino32.exe (UK)

This new build expires on May 31.

There are a lot of new features and bug fixes in this build, including:

- Customizable keyboard shortcuts.
- Surface of revolution command is improved.
- Support for periodic surfaces. A periodic surface is a special kind
  of closed surface that is very smooth at its seam. The seam will
  stay smooth, even when control points are squished around.
- New commands to aid in manipulating control points.
- Edge fillet command that lets you easily round the edges of simple

This build also incorporates our first run at a Rhino help file. The help
file is still rough, but it contains a lot of valuable information.
To get help on a specific command, start the command and press F1.

Details on new commands, changes, and bug fixes are in the help file,
and will also be at http://www.rhino3d.com/whats_new.html next week.
