Sorry for my long absence. Till I get a replacement for my OEM Tech Manager, I'm doing two jobs and time is something I was already lacking before taking on this extra work.
Yes, Nero 22.214.171.124 is a leaked Beta release. This is a precursur to our Nero 7 Ultra Editoin 'Enhanced' release due to ship in the stores on Sept. 1st, and be available on the website by Sept. 15th.
The difference in time between the two is due to the need for Retail to be shipped by a ceratian date, and the fact that we could not get all the changes we wanted in the build by Sept 1st.
You will find significant changes and improvements. And yes, like the Nero 6.6 release, this will be a free update for existing Nero 7 users.
We could not charge for an update, when Nero 7 was not yet where we wanted it to be, which is what we've stated from the first release of Nero 7.
You will see a definate change in the update process, and I'm sure you'll be elated to see the changes we made in the Nero ProductSetup window.
