Aldus PageMaker is a desktop publishing package developed by Aldus Corporation for Apple Macintosh. The first version of PageMaker was released in July 1985. It was the first ever commercial desktop publishing application.
PageMaker version 4.2 was released in 1992 and introduced such features as story editor, plug-in system "Aldus additions", and a scripting language for automating PageMaker operations.
