Dear GlowCode user:

During the past 3 months we have added substantial new features to GlowCode. 
Most significantly, the heap leak detector is even faster, more accurate, and 
more user-friendly. We believe that GlowCode's heap leak detection continues to 
be second to none.

If you have a version of a glowcode.dll dated before 8/13/01, we suggest you 
get the latest update from

This is a free upgrade if you have v3 license or purchased your v2 license 
after 12./1/00. Otherwise, if you have a v2 license the upgrade price is $100 
and if you have a v1 license the upgrade price is $200.

If your current license is no longer valid, you may request another evaluation 
license. Please type the words "v3 reevaluation" in the evaluation license 
Comments field at

Finally, welcome to our new mailing list for GlowCode users. In the future we 
will be using this list to better inform you of new features and suggestions on 
how to better use GlowCode.
