Thank you! (WAS RE: Acrobat & Reader 4.05 update)

Dov, I'm usually amazed at the information you pull out of your hat regarding Adobe, FrameMaker, and Acrobat, but you're outdone yourself on this one! Thanks for doing whatever you did (and to any other Adobe list denizens who were involved but anonymous) to change the policy on the 4.05 upgrade to what it should be.

For international customers, the update will begin shipping in mid-January, 2000, and customers should receive the CD within four to six weeks.
