Yes. It's in my MiKTeX tree. The exact version is:
   Version 0.3 (r514)(MiKTeX 2.8)

Oh, this may be an answer for the suboptimal quality that I experienced 
lately. I accused my printer for the quality since I got better results 
in the company office.

The LaTeX document was a sample with old German fonts. Since it was just 
an experiment I probably printed it directly from TW. I cannot say that 
I printed using TW or using Adobe Reader.

Are there other important changes from 0.3r514 to 0.3r567? I would 
expect a version number change, when the feature set is changed. Where 
can I read about the version numbering scheme?
