    == eComStation 2.2 beta ==

    This is a beta version of eComStation 2.2, provided to interested
    customers for the purpose of testing and evaluation.

    eComStation 2.2 includes many new features. While our in-house
    testing indicates that they are fully functional and reliable, we
    would appreciate as many reports from our beta testers as possible
    in order to complete our evaluation prior to final product release.

    Consequently, we would request that, when using the eComStation 2.2
    Beta, you pay particular attention to testing and evaluating the
    following new or improved features:

    * New: CUPS printer support. Support for a large variety of printers
    is installed by default.
    * New: File Open Container.
    * New: split view for desktop folders.
    * New: Adapters and Protocols configuration program.
    * New: PNG Desktop. (large icons)
    * ACPI power management, especially in combination with multiple
    processors. The ACPI support in eComStation 2.2 has been
    significantly overhauled relative to earlier versions.
    * Video driver performance with Panorama. Panorama has received
    considerable improvement since eComStation 2.1; in particular,
    widescreen displays should now be much better-supported.
    * WiFi support has been updated with new versions of the XWLAN
    widget and the WPA supplicant program.
    * A Java-based RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) client has been added
    to facilitate remote connections to Windows workstations and
