Subject Re: sample release announcement

Hi Rick -
Two thoughts for what they are worth regarding this bullet:
 o Adds builtin language-based ordering and LIKE processing.

Since you have to create a DB to specifically support this it might be 
best to say:
  o Ability to create databases that supports alternate collation 
sequences (non-UCS_BASIC).  These databases support language specific 
ordering and LIKE processing.
   -- It also seems this might fit better in the Administration section 
since it has to be specified when the Db is created.

And thanks for driving this release to completion.
