    Dear Mark,

    Jasc Software is pleased to announce that a Preview Release of its
    upcoming Paint Shop Pro 8.1 update is now available for public download.
    Scheduled to be released later this fall, Paint Shop Pro 8.1 features
    widespread enhancements to product performance, addresses issues that have
    been reported with Paint Shop Pro 8 since the initial release and adds
    a number of feature enhancements.

    The purpose of this Preview Release is to gather feedback on the
    changes that have been made and ensure that remaining issues are addressed
    before the update is released. New feature requests and other suggestions
    will be collected for consideration in future versions of the program.


    This is a Preview Release of Paint Shop Pro 8.1. This means that this
    version of Paint Shop Pro 8.1 is not yet final software. The purpose of
    releasing this Preview Release software is to help us improve the final
    product through your feedback and defect reports. If you are not
    willing to test potentially unstable software and report any defects found,
    please do not install this Preview Release software.

    If you participate in Preview Release testing you should expect to
    encounter issues that may prevent you from using the software in a normal
    manner. If you are uncomfortable working in this type of changing
    environment or with the ramifications of any of these issues, we strongly
    encourage you to continue using your current version of Paint Shop Pro
    until the final release of Paint Shop Pro 8.1 when these types of issues
    have been resolved.


    Please note that you will need to uninstall your copy of Paint Shop Pro
    8.0/8.01 before beginning this installation.
