07/20/02 - HUGE, should be version 2 but I'm sticking with Amazon's XML version number. If you are using an older version with templates do NOT rush to upgrade. Study the FAQ and especially the sample templates. Older templates will not work with this version. It's hard to describe all the changes; but they are great. Check this out! And boy is this thing reliable, gone are the intermittent "Sorry, no results were found". I have updated the FAQ with the main new variable and will update it again within a week to include all of the new variables.
