Subject: Re: Is 6.11 with Xwindows buggy ?
We've been using it at the office for about a month, and its been both
faster and more stable than 6.09.
We run on HP/UX 9.04 on a T500/4-way, with ASK/Ingres. The memory
"leak" with Ingres has also been cleared up with this release as well.
We couldn't be happier with 6.11!
