Friedrich,

I own 4 and I assume that is professional. I believe you have said we get an
upgrade to 5. How do we get the developer edition?

Regards,
Dave Schwartz

G'day Friedrich,

Was supposed to be "all registered beta testers" or really all users of SB
DE?

Sorry for the delay. We had to fix an annoying uninstaller bug (GPF during
self-removal).

We have added support for .NET assembly installation / uninstallation
(Developer Edition only) and Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 (beta build 40607
and 40903) detection.

The SB5 Developer and Professional Edition (build #1014) will be available
tomorrow. The IDE will use our web update technology to update itself.

We will begin to send out the new SB5 Developer Edition keys tomorrow
morning.
