New in version 4.2: The commercial version of 4.2 has had the Apple G3, G4, PowerBook, iMac, iBook scripts re-worked.
There are new scripts for Olitech 56K modems, since CompUSA has started carrying these for Mac. Also, many of the Supra, Zoom, and USR Scripts have had minor improvements. Version 4.2 also has about 50 of the V.90 scripts re-worked to compensate for errors in some ISP's V.90 Code. This will probably be the last major change until and if the author adopts the V.92 Standard.
New in version 4.225: Two scripts tested have a full 6.5 hours of reliability with no random disconnects on an iMac Modem. The test involved successfully uploading Netscape Navigator 4.73 (over 13mb) to a Web space, which took 1 hour, 59 minutes. The rest of the test was spent downloading various files until the test was voluntarily ended at 6.5 hours.
