     I have a 3670 Symbolics machine, and two 3640 Symbolics
     Machines (the first one operates as the server, i.e:only
     one disk). I would like to upgrade from Genera 7.1 to 7.2.
     The reason was that prolog running on 7.1 (prolog 3.0) wasn't
     so friendly and have some bugs ... i asked for a new prolog
     version, and was told that in order to work with prolog 4.0,
     i'll need to have Genera 7.2 instead.
     I was also told that pascal, fortran and tcp/ip should
     upgrade too (the old ones wouldn't work with genera 7.2!!).
     My question is:
   	 Are the above things true? any suggestions?
     Do i have to buy three copies? (legally and practically)
     I also need to know whether MACSIMA and KEE3.0 would
     run on 7.2, or i'll need to upgrade them too?
     Thanks in advance for your help,
     Any suggestions would be appreciated.
   I don't know about KEE.

KEE3.0 is obsolete.  KEE3.1 is available, but only under Genera 7.1.
KEE3.1 for 7.2 is in beta-test now, and will supposedly be available in
