For anyone who read my ***preliminary*** message last week about the
PowerPoint 3.0 bug, I received the following response today. Please
read it, take it into consideration, and make up your own mind. If I was
wrong about the severity of the bug, I say this: I'd rather pass on what
I've heard NOW and save some people a lot of aggravation, and iron out
the details later, than not say anything and let some fellow Mac users find
themselves in major trouble.

So, for your enlightenment...

The issue is not what was described on internet, but is as follows:

3.0b addresses two specific issues:

a. Problem loosing TYPE/CREATOR information when saving a
presentation to a network that does not support Apple
File Protocol 3.0.

Nearly all network vendors have versions that now
support AFP 3.0, so this fix is only necessary for those
installations that have not upgraded their network

b. Problem with the Apple floppy disk driver that can cause
system error when saving a presentation, which may
result in the loss of any work done on any open documents
on the computer, since the last time they were successfully saved.

NO files are damaged and no other data is lost.

DEFINITELY NO damage or loss of data to any
files residing on a hard drive.

Please make sure that this is clarified as soon as possible, if
you have an account on the Internet.
