Re: Freedom Scientific Quietly Releases JAWS 8.0 Update Build 1166, or is that 1171?

Hi all,
I am also running build 1166 of JAWS. I updated it before I saw the post on this list and went to the Blind Access Journal article. I only did it on my desktop machine because I use it as my testing machine to make sure software and the new JAWS automatic update work well with JAWS before I install the software or JAWS update on my laptop because I use the laptop for school, and I can't have a day without it if possible because I wouldn't be able to complete my assignments. Since I updated to build 1166 on my desktop, does that mean that I did all that for nothing?

Jeff

Hi Rick,

It has finally been made unavailable as of sometime this afternoon, but let me assure all of you that I am now running Build 1166, and I'm not sure I like it at this point.

I don't know either,

When I try to update JAWS tells me I am running the latest update. And Eric
Damery told me the other   day by email that the next update won't be out
till sometime in April.

I'm just curious as to how this info was found out, since there's no
download link or information what so ever on FS's site.

I'll bet someone at FS made a mistake in the release.  I was told by Eric
Damery that the next update to JAWS probably would be sometime in April.

         Hi.  When I checked for updates, I was told I was running
the latest version, and I'm running build 1163.
The interesting thing is that since others had reported seing build
1171, I made like I was going to atempt to download the latest
version of JAWS from the FS website.
But instead of just downloading build 1163 again, I slightly changed
the file name to reflect the current build number. in other words, i
changed it so the file name would be: J8.0.1171U_ILM.exe
         To my surprise, it actually worked and I was given the
opportunity to download it.  But since there is such confusion about
build numbers and we don't even know what is changed in this latest
version, I am going to hold off until I get official word from FS.
and because of what happened last time with automatic updates, I
think i'm going to stick with just downloading fresh copies from the
FS website. I'll at least know I got a full version in case automatic
updates screws up again.
