Would be nice if the next version allows to connect from inside a firewall..

Look at ICQ.. that works too..
And objects can be still downloaded via HTTP

but wait- isn't this exactly the kind of software most employers were trying to
prevent their employees from using when they installed the firewalls in the first
place? hehe

email roland at activeworlds.com and ask to be a beta tester. You'll get
the latest builds as soon as they come off the compiler, without having
to wait until the final, completed version. The catch? The betas are,
by definition, un-tested and usually full of bugs. If you're a
beta-tester, you have to accept this, and are more-or-less obligated to
try your best to report any problems in a helpful way so that they can
be fixed :-)

have fun!

Of course, the other way to get it is to wait. When the new version is
"finished" it will be made readily available, and all you will have to do in
order to find the upgrade is run ActiveWorlds once the new version is
available. That's all there is to it. :)

*Most* firewalls are there to prevent the outside world from coming
*in*. The side benefit of limiting "games" is just that, a side
benefit.
