Good to know, if I ever get Flare 8.
Apparently, I might be on the slow end of the roll-out of download
letters to holders of maintenance plans. And you can't get it by
going to the MadCap site. All you get is a big "DOWNLOAD" button
that just trolls for e-mail addresses, but doesn't actually send
out e-mails (it's been two and a half hours, now, and nothing on
my corporate address OR my Gmail).
I sent a message to customersupport -at- madcapsoftware -dot- com, but today's
window of opportunity (all three hours of it) is totally blown.
Don't know when I'll get another few hours to install, configure,
and start playing with new software.
