This is really a first for us, in that we are essentially updatingour product for you in real time with a major platform change. We havenever done this before, so please do understand that we are going tohesitate a beat or two to ensure the MSFS release is really and trulyrolling out globally before we turn our update on, as this update willbreak compatibility between the PMDG DC-6 and the older version ofMSFS so we want to be certain we are in phase with the platform.

We appreciate your patience during that brief lag-time-overlap, butkeep an eye here and we will let you know where-and-how the moment theupdate is available for you.
