Are you sure that that "nominal fee" goes to SAS Institute and not your
IS department slush fund?
I assume it's not a nominal fee of $1, or you wouldn't be worrying

Is there an official estimate for a release date of 9.2 on sas.com?
Version 9.1 has apparently arrived at my fine university.
However, I'm still learning the oddities of educational contracts with
The master CDs are here (somewhere). But my *department* needs to pay
(nominal) fee for each person upgrading to 9.1. (So it aint like most
companies, where you have an annual license fee that includes 'free'
So now that the CDs are at the university, the people in my department
wondering, "should we pay nominal_fee*10 SASprogrammers to upgrade to
if that means we will again have to pay nominal_fee*10 again in the
to get to 9.2?"
Of course, I'm holding my breath waiting for 9.1, so I'm hoping I can
them (honestly :) "we won't be seeing 9.2 any time soon, so let's go
and get 9.1."
Thanks for any info,
