Short Description Notification of new Builds and Releases ?

Although there is a "release information" link directly to
the left of this (support center) edit window, I find it 
difficult to determine which version is the latest or the 
correct one for us.

Here's an easy idea: Since you have our email addresses in 
a distribution list for your newsletter, why not merely 
email us all a one-line note that says: the latest build is 
"x.y.z" ?  

(Sure, you have custom builds, but you know who gets those, 
so they could be in a different list - and this could be 
automated as a final step in the build approval process.)

To make it fast, you could avoid including any the change log info in the note. It's just a reminder for us to go 
look and get it, if we need to.  We take it for granted 
that the new build is better.

And say, is this the latest for beta 2?

Comment You are not the first to request this. We do have a profile-driven e-mail capability in the SupportCenter, just have to add one for notifications, and give you the opportunity to set an interest.

T2_0_4N.zip is the latest-- it may have issues with Netscape unless you also grab the surfer.css file and copy it to your \screensurfer\hostserver\docs directory.

>> it may have issues with Netscape 

Being a Microsoft-only shop has its advantages...

(no Bill Gates jokes please ;-)
