I don't plan to delete V5 !

I will not remove any feature between V5 and V6. I will _add_ features in V6. -- [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://www.overbyte.be -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
