Re: The Next Version Number?

Hi Margaret,

Just read Eric's own message here, giving the details of changes in the 
update.  Why is everyone discussing this in the first place?  Weeks ago, 
someone mentioned that an update would soon be coming out, and that Eric had 
announced it at a convention.  This was very clearly the announcement of an 
interim update, which is a regular sort of thing.  I believed it and didn't 
give it another thought until the list became alive with rumors and 
questions, back and forth.  This could have been due to only two things. 
One, maybe people aren't reading their list messages.  Two, maybe some 
people don't know the difference between the terms "update" and "upgrade."

They are not synonyms.  They don't mean the same thing.  An update is a free 
modification to the current version of the program.  An upgrade is a new 
version or new release, whichever term you prefer.

Hope this helps.

During the next two weeks, we will post another Free Update for JAWS
6.x
users. This will be version 6.2 and in addition to many requested
fixes, it
will offer the ability to let a PAC Mate user control their PC and
Desktop
JAWS. This will include Keyboard in put, synthesizer, and Braille
output all
from the PAC Mate BX or QX models. There will be more details on this
shortly.

Following that, will be an SMA release in September. This will be the
version 7.0.
Regards,
Eric
