At 8pm EST tonight, Microsoft e-mailed
account information to all new DirectX 7 testers. The account will be used to access Microsoft's Premium DirectX site, in order
to download DirectX betas. DirectX 7 testers were also invited to test the new DirectX 6.1
RC0, which we posted on earlier this week. DirectX 6.1 is scheduled for release around
Christmas, so Microsoft hopes to get feedback by Thanksgiving. One of the major components
in DirectX 6.1 will be the focus on DirectMusic, which was only a beta in DirectX 6. Also,
DirectX 6.1 will be compatible with Windows 2000 drivers.
