I have the FrameMaker version of the new release, but have not had time to go
through it yet.  I am told that the update deals primarily with editorial
cleanup with some application of the errata that has been published in the web.
I will produce a "diff" of the documents when I get back to the office next

No, but since it will eventually be incorporated into the Draft, reviewing it is
a good idea.  HOWEVER, please return comments on the content of D0.6 ONLY.  That
is the only document we can consider without a vote of the membership of 802.15.

 A comment applied to D0.6 such as "Need to replace clauses 6, 7, and the GAP
annex with updated material from V1.0b" seems very reasonable.  :-)

If you wish to comment on the material in V1.0b, please do so in a seperate
file.  We will figure out what to do with it at the next meeting.
