Global Village posted an update to their GlobalFax software (v.2.6.8) and a flash ROM update (v.2.200) for their PC Card modems late last evening. It should be noted that GlobalFax 2.6.8 is not compatible with the internal modems in Wallstreet, Lombard, or the iMac. New features in GlobalFax include:
- TelePort control panel: The TelePort control panel has been renamed GlobalFax Controls.
- “Y2K” compatibility: GlobalFax software has no functionality issues with Y2K. However, the Send At feature for scheduling faxes in a calendar year past the current calendar year has been fixed to enable scheduling past the year 1999.
- 10- and 11-digit dialing: GlobalFax software has been upgraded to allow for 10- and 11-digit dialing as this is or will soon become a requirement in some US area codes.
