Nope. I don't know if we're going to experiment with the beta or not.
Considering that so few modem manufacturers have released V.90 updates so
far, I may not worry about it until 6.1 comes out in a month. USR has had
V.90 updates available for a while and Hayes just released it for some of
their modems too. I don't know what we'll do--I guess I'll just have to
play it by ear and see what happens.
