All new bulk right-to-copy, omnibus, and academic site license orders will be fulfilled with the new version.

The retail shrinkwrapped package will be available in several weeks. In the meantime, single copies or small quantities can be purchased or downloaded for evaluation from e-academy. The new package will include Kermit 95 2.1 as well as the new C-Kermit 8.0 CDROM. At the same time, the Using C-Kermit manual (second edition) will become available separately as an "e-book" (as well as in printed form) from its publisher, Digital Press.
