    David Strip's question prompts me to ask if Genera 8.1 is being
    distributed already? Our salesthing is frequently a bit slow with such 

    If it is being distributed, could someone sketch the highlights of what
    it fixes/adds?

Genera 8.1 is not being distributed yet.  You would have heard the
trumpets.  Really.  We presently expect to ship it late in the second
quarter of calendar 1991, but there will be a real announcement when
things are firm.

A list of the major features will also come with the official
announcement.  To whet your interest, a couple of notable fatures are
(1) netboot for Ivory machines, (2) a transparently reimplemented table
facility with much-improved performance.
