May 15, 2016 Update Notes


   LAST CD UPDATE IS 01 JULY 16

Since ALL of our customers now use Internet transactions, we will be
discontinuing mailing of Updates on CDs.

After installing the 01 Jul 16 Update, the update configuration will
AUTOMATICALLY switch to 'Telecom'.

For customers using the 'new' 132x42 character screen format (aka 'client' or
'new stuff'), automatic pick up and install will be available.  Your system
can be configured to pick up updates and install for a specific day and time. 
Pick up and install can be configured to be different days/times.  Logging of
update pick up and installation will be done and any problems will be
displayed in the message window of the main menu.
