      The 1.5 beta 2 version of the Creation Workshop/Creator software is
      available for testing at the following website:

      http://www.visi.com/~bkvam/update/

      Download only those updaters for the products you've purchased (unless the
      product is installed, the updater won't work). Unzip the updater (for the
      unzip password use the last word in the Creation Workshop manual, or for
      HERO Creator, use the last word of the first sentence in the second
      paragraph on page 23) and run the updater application in the ZIP file.

      It is recommended that you install the beta version in a different
      directory after the updater has found the original, to preserve your
      current installation. Remember that editing an existing character sheet
      will make it unusable with the previous version of the application, so you
      may wish to make copies of any character sheets you edit. To point back to
      the original data files, use the Utilities | Preferences... dialog to set
      the Source Directory to the original installation directory.

      Please send all comments to brucehh@... (and copy bkvam@...)
      by Friday, Dec. 11.

      This version contains the following new major features (see the release
      notes in the update for more details):

      * Allow multiple selections in options list when editing items (very useful
      for copying multiple Advantages and Limitations).

      * You can load character sheets as data by storing them in the Creation
      Workshop source directory and loading them with File | Load Data Sheet...
      Makes creating Package Deals much easier.

      * Added picture references to print templates that allow "computed"
      references to bitmaps, references to text values defined in dialogs, and an
      absolute file name. This lets different graphics be displayed on the
      character sheet depending on values in the character sheet, as well as
      user-changeable character sheet graphics.

      * Several fixes and enhancements to Hero Creator, including an easier way
      to customize the logo graphic printed on the character sheet (no longer
      requires Creation Workshop to replace that particular logo).

      Plus dozens of other features and bug fixes.

      Thanks for your help!
