Thank your for your reply, David

I downloaded the beta version on July 8 2005 from the CVS usage 
website.  I noticed that the heading of the program is in VERSION 
3.3_beta_20050202. I am not certain if this is the latest version. If it 
is not, can you please let me know the patches for the latest version.
