The Beaverlog Tips email newsletter has been published since January, 2003 corresponding to release 2.0.007 of The THERAPIST for Windows. Through release 2.0.018, there has been an almost 1 to 1 relationship between product releases and Beaverlog Tips volumes. Volume 8 never happened (don't ask) and volume 9 (corresponding to 2.0.009) was the first to contain a useful article.

Things changed with volume 18 corresponding to the release of 2.0.018. With The THERAPIST being split into two products (Pro and EZ), the newsletter now has less focus on listing the changes for each new release. Actually, the changes are no longer listed at all and are replaced with links to the change lists for Pro and for EZ on this web site. We removed the version changes from newsletters here and suggest you click here if you want to see what was fixed or improved in each version and release.

Some of the information in the articles may be outdated; this is, after all, an archive.
