Re: patchlevel11 -> final

Ther is another option.  That is to make you own patch file.  As you imp
significant new options, create a patch file that will take stock Circle 
patch 11 and update it with you changes.  That way when the final version 
is released you can simply apply your patch tp it and bring in all the 
custom function.  Of course there may be places where this doesn't work 
and you would still have to patch by hand, but chances are good that you 
would have to do less than if you updated each patch level of Circle by hand.
