I have never understood the constant prattle about new versions.  Freedom 
Scientific has demonstrated that when they actually have something, whether 
it be a public beta or a release, they know how to announce it.  They know 
how to market!
Dave has now announced, with some perception of certainty, that version 6 
is coming out in October.  Dave, with what authority do you make this 
pronouncement?  Also, how does it matter?  Until it's out, we don't have 
it.  When it's out, we do.  The endless questions and rumors don't alter 
the release in any way.  Based on history, we know the next version will 
fix some problems, add some features, and create some new problems.  I 
appreciate that we have no control over people who join the list and then 
ask about new versions, but it would be an enhancement to the quality of 
the list of existing members refrained from discussing useless conjecture 
until it turns from conjecture to certainty.
