 	     Chime and Chime Pro/Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2 Update
 On August 3, we warned our customers and user community that Microsoft had
 unexpectedly removed support for the plug-in interface and was therefore
 incompatible with existing versions of Chime and Chime Pro.  At the time, we
 asked our customers to hold off upgrading to Internet Explorer 5.5 SP2 or
 any later version.
 We are pleased to announce that we are now confident of delivering a
 short-term solution to this problem as part of Chime and Chime Pro 2.6
 Service Pack 3 (SP3).  We expect to release this within the next two weeks.
 This service pack is designed to work with IE 5.5 SP2, and we expect to be
 able to extend compatibility to 6.0 at a later date.  When used with IE 5.5
 SP2 (but not 6.0), this service pack should also have the benefit of fixing
 the printing problems that have been reported against previous versions of
 IE 5.5.
 For the longer term, the Chime team will be continuing to work on
 architectural changes that will allow Chime to be more independent of the
 underlying browser technologies.  We will release details of these changes
 on the Chime website once they are firm.
 Thanks,
 MDL Chime Product team
