That's the plan. 1.44 will include both V2 and V3. Tests are mostly
looking good. There is a problem with an older GCC release, but
multiple testers are having good results with more recent GCC
releases. There is a pending Sun problem, but I'm able to run the
tests with a fresh download of the Sun compiler, so I'm hopeful of
getting that resolved.

Thanks for you help,
