Colleagues and Friends...

The 1.0.3 version of Constellation has just been released and can be  
downloaded by existing users via the "check for updates" link in the  
Doc & Info window (about box). New versions of the other Gadgets from  
D&M have also been uploaded and can be downloaded in the same manner  
indicated above. (Release info below.)

NOTE: some day soon, Inspection Gadget, Object Gadget, Transcript  
Gadget and Time Gadget will be released at full retail price. It  
might be a good time to take advantage of special Gadget Suite  
pricing. (See web site below for details.)
