Sorry - I seem to have missed this thread earlier. Just
wanted to mention that our Legal department absolutely
forbids us to say "or higher" regarding later versions
of our products because they claim that this is implicitly
making commitments regarding future products. They insist
that we either name all the relevant releases or say
"at least version N.n." Your company's policy might differ
but you might want to check this aspect.

Cheers,
Janice
