Next release of Presenter 09?

Does anyone have any idea when the next major release to Presenter '09 will be?

And I heard rumors that it will have a forced resume presentation feature.  In other words the prompt won't appear asking the user is they'd like to resume where they left off or not.   Anybody know if the next release will include a forced resume presentation option?

Thanks

Well...

1> No confirmed details yet on the releae data. I suspect that Storyline release is the main focus at the moment, and that new version of Suite will be "when it is ready", i.e. still substantial beta to do yet.

2> If you are talking about SCORM bookmarking when you say "forced resume", I would be very surprised. As I understand it, that's a standard feature of SCORM, not AP'09 per se. Where did you get the rumour from?

Hi Bruce,

I had seen reference to the 'forced resume' feature in one of the discussion boards or a posting.  It wasn't very specific, but I believe it was referring to the idea of no text box popping up giving the option to resume where last left off in the presentation.

Have a great day!

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the reply.  This is not quite what I'm looking for.  With the current version of Presenter '09 if you uncheck this box then the student is forced to start from the beginning every time they re-enter the course.  In other words, they can't get back to the slide where they left off.

I'm wanting an option so that they're 'forced' to pickup where they left off at the time they exited the course without being prompted or asked if they'd like to resume upon re-entering the course. 

Thanks,

Steven

I second this request - in fact this is exactly what I am trying to get accomplished at the moment.  I have had students accidentally hit "no" on the prompt to resume only to find out that hours of progress were just lost with no way to get it back.
