No, I'm not. I had problems placing an order on the Apogee website, and ended up placing an order over the phone. Michelle Mason and I e-mailed back and forth. She said that they weren't sending V.8 unless people were specifically requesting it.

So like Craig, I downloaded the 30-day functional RS9 beta from a direct URL. As much as I hate to burst everybody's bubble, no, I wasn't a betatester and I didn't get any special treatment. (Okay, talking to Michelle at Apogee on the phone was nice because she's a very helpful and professional person, but that's *it.* )

Here's the "about" information from the copy I'm using:


"Version information

Copyright: 2006 Paul L. Fossey
Beta release, 64

That's all I got.
