All sounds great. I'm amused to note that the compatibility page you
reference from the FAQ only lists CVSNT 2.0.58b as compatible, and
that's not (obviously) available for download. You do not yourselves
state anywhere that you consider 2.5.02 to be compatible - a shame, as
it'd be a good bit of advertising for CVSNT.

OK. So, let me get this straight. Apart from anyone who searches the
archives for your email:
- You include the detail that 2.5.02 works in an eBook.
- The eBook is only distributed with the premium edition of 2.5.02,
which is a subscription version.
- Therefore, the only way to find out that 2.5.02 works with Eclipse is
to buy it.
- Meanwhile, the FAQ points to an Eclipse page that makes no mention
that anything other than 2.0.58b is compatible.
- So no Eclipse user will want to shell out on the premium version of
2.5.02 o get the eBook which tells them that they can use it with
Erm... Excuse me? Isn't this a little Monty Python-esque? A better
statement of compatibility on the main CVSNT page would probably gain
you revenue from Eclipse users buying the premium version, rather than
lose you revenue.
