The Jupiter Ace has overcome initial production problems and is now being delivered in numbers. Aces are now beginning to appear in high street stores. Jupiter Cantab is producing 3,000 units a month. The Cambridge based company hopes to phase out mail-order deliveries and handing over distribution to several large chains, including Lasky's and Greens.
   Software for the Ace is also on the way. Steven Vickers, who designed
the fast Forth micro with Richard Altwasser, and three other software writers are developing a range of games and educational programs to be released shortly.
   Meanwhile Remsoft has already released three tapes for the Ace. Programs include a disassemble, games, and a simple database with tape storage. They are available direct from Remsoft, 18 George Street, Brighton BN2 1RH. Telephone 0273 602354.
