I was also at Conference 98 and remember leaving with the thought; "I HOPE the new version comes out before my Premiere Service expires in April 99." I also remember Neil Soiffer (of Wolfram Research) made a joke about this during his talk. He said "We can make one promise about when the next version will be available; it will be after tomorrow ." It seems we hear less from the Wolfram Research developers in the MathGroup in recent weeks. I suspect this is because they have internal pressures to fix any remaining bugs ASAP, and release the new version.

We previewed the beta at the Mathematica Conference in June, and indications were that it would be released before year's end. Forgot to ask which year, I guess. Also, there was a lot of discussion about a new variable type - something like a "Packed Number" which allowed for much more efficient numerical calculations. Does this spell the end for the need for InterCall? Just Asking, Kevin
