most recent email I've had said E9.2 field test participants would be contacted about getting V9.2 and there was no need to apply. I'm awaiting that contact. 8-)

I think everyone is waiting for the renewal of x86 contract in Service Portal.
Or is there anyone who was able to test the new version 9.2 that is out since 14th July?

   I'm not.  So far as I can tell, my access to the Service Platform is
as good as it ever was.  But that gets me only the same E9.2 kit (and a
few other odds and ends) as before.

   Still true, I believe.  Renewed access to E9.2 is not the same as
access to V9.2.

   Paying customers?  If V9.2 fixes any of the problems which I found
(and reported) with E9.2, then I'd be interested in getting it, too
(even without a native C compiler), but the plan seems to be not to give
it to us peons yet.
