Jumping to a whole new version of JAWS is most likely a marketing ploy by FS

to justify the cost of extending one's SMA.  After all, if they released 
these changes as version 9.1, users would be less inclined to shell out the 
extra bucks for the upgrade.  Nobody seems to know who really owns FS, but 
there are rumors floating around that it is actually owned by an investment 
group based inn Dubai, United Arab Emirs which may be pressuring management 
in this country to release new versions of JAWS on a regular cycle.
