42                <p>Happy new year to everyone! Here's wishing 2009 to be a blast like it has always been!</p>
43                <p>Today I'm happy to announce the availability of Eraser 6 release candidate 3 (6.0.3.847). It includes fixes for a few relatively show stopping problems introduced in rc2 (my apologies) and a few other usability fixes.</p>

98                <p>
99                    Once again I'd like to thank all 12000 beta testers who has downloaded Eraser to date.
100                    We appreciate your support in our project and hope to see you guys contributing to our forums and filing bugs when you find them!
101                </p>
102                <p>Special mention goes out to Chris Wagers for finding a few bugs in Eraser and Overwriter for being ever so patient in dealing with support questions!</p>
103                <p>
104                    <strong>Disclaimer: The security of the erasures has not been verified by internal or external entities.
105                    The code is still of <em>beta quality</em> and may not remove all traces of files with the confidence of Version 5.
106                    If you have security concerns, do use Version 5 while the security aspects of Version 6 are ironed out.</strong>
107                    It is however noteworthy that v6 uses only <em>documented API's</em> for erasure and therefore the risk of corrupting your drives is lower than Version 5.
