The promise of 'regular' upgrades of the sixth edition is now a beginning reality after a mere sixteen years, due, undoubtedly, to the wonders of 'electronic' storage. Actually, the electronic version of 1987 was helpful, but akin to a stone-age tool in 2003. This is not a major revision. A number of the datasets (nee 'problems') are changed in minor ways; the typography is, I think, much improved; but none of the last-edition datasets has been deleted, nor have any new ones been added. IPA symbols have replaced Americanist symbols in some datasets; but not uniformly. Some datasets remain or have been recast in orthographies used by reading populations of certain languages where phonological issues are not in view.
