Well, apparently the form permits to omit the state/providence field, and I hope e-mails will reach Germany, too:)

I got a response without choosing state/province - so I think it's OK!

Me, too:) - even though I can't spell contents from the form correctly:

I just received an email telling me, that I am participating ;-) So I am looking forward to it

(10 Oct '12, 09:06) Martin

The emails will definitely reach Germany, but I'm afraid they'll take a little longer to get there. Roughly 0.02 seconds. Speed of light, you know.

(10 Oct '12, 09:16) Graeme Perrow

Are you sure they are not sent from Walldorf, Germany? :)

(10 Oct '12, 09:55) Volker Barth

Good point Volker. Regardless of where they're sent from, they'll likely end up going through Walldorf anyway, so in actual fact you may get the emails 0.02 seconds before people in North America.

Hi folks,

I am only conditionaly interested in beta testing program depending on changes made in performance related topics, but unfortunately I didn't find any detailed information about those. Does someone have more info and be so kindly to tell/show more? Briefly description on ASA site is not very helpful

Performance - performance is a focus with every SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere release and it will be no different with Nagano. In addition to keeping up with advances in hardware, we also respond to customer feedback for improvements"

If you sign up for the beta test, you will get access to the web Help without having to download or run the software itself, and in that web Help there is some discussion of the performance enhancements.

"The beta software will be available soon. Please be on the lookout for an email message with instructions on how to download the software and how to access the beta web site."

... oh you tease!
