We've worked very hard on this software update. For those of you who don't already have version 5.3 of our software, we hope you will take advantage of these improvements.

The email was a bit odd. It was sent with both plain text and HTML, which is normal, but while the HTML version had the update info, the plain text version contained a newsletter. Not something that your typical user would notice these days, but it did confuse me for a bit.

Also, while the text of the HTML suggests email to 975softwareupdate@outlawaudio.com, the associated link sends the response to nweiner@outlawaudio.com.

Mikemokr,

There were minor code tweaks that addressed system stability rather than feature specific issues- all working towards ensuring that the major issues we listed worked in a "do no harm" manner, so that addressing one thing didn't break something else.

Believe it or not, getting to a final production release of version 5.3 took us a long time with several modifications based upon glitches discovered by our Beta testers. When we finally released 5.3 in new production units a few months back, we continued to monitor it carefully to make sure there were no detected side effects discovered by a broad sampling of customers.

When we determined that 5.3 performed quite well with this larger sampling base, we took steps to offer it to all customers who had purchased 975's no matter when they acquired one.

So who's taken the time to update their 975 and what do you think?

We announced this update Friday afternoon. On Monday, we will begin to ship out the special cable to those who requested them. Until those customers receive their cable, they cannot update their units. Therefore you should probably be seeing the first reports sometime late this coming week.

Nancy: I have not received an Outlaw email with the update info. Nothing in my In box and nothing in my Suspect email box.
