SignWriting Image Server Beta 5

I guess that this means that I need to update my SWIS that I have on  
my website right now that I have been using to place SignWriting on my  
website. :-)

So does this mean that SignText is functional with this beta? That  
will be good because I have some text that I have been needing to work  
on, but without the SignText column function, I have been having to  
place individual signs which proved to be very hard for me to get it  
just write. So needless to say, I have not written many of the texts  
because of that little frustration. So I am looking forward to doing  
this update.

What would be the best way to update to this beta? And will there be  
symbols that will be displayed differently? I am not sure what you  
mean by the comma delimited build.

To see how I am using the SWIS right now, you can look at my website.
