Japanese or Chinese Language Kit users must wait to upgrade to System 7.5 until updates for each language kit are released around the end of this year. The System 7.5 Read Me file suggests upgrading to version 1.1.1 of the language kits, which do not yet exist. The QuickDraw GX URGENT Read Me file says the GX software requires WorldScript II version 7.2 or later, but in fact the language kit update is required as well. [MHA]
