It has long been the custom on the Yahoogroup too. Wordfast is always in beta, in a manner of speaking. The developer doesn't wait months and months before releasing a bugfix or a new version with a cutting edge feature in it, so it's safe to always mention the version number. It's not even necessary to write "Classic" or "Pro", since Pro's version numbers are in the sixes (or aren't they any more?) and Classic's numbers are in the threes, fours and fives (mostly fives).
Thanks for reiterating.
We have two different products in the Wordfast Translation Studio, Wordfast Classic and Wordfast Pro which have different behaviors/features/preferences. Wordfast 5.5 and Wordfast 6.0 are names that we are phasing out. Moving forward it will be Wordfast Classic 5.53 (example) and Wordfast Pro 2.1.8 (example--will not be version number 6 again for a while). WFC and WFP will not be on the same release schedules so there might be a point they have the same version number.
I feel its necessary to still reference Classic and Pro so that Pro/Classic readers can stay in the loop even if they aren't following the version numbers or are slow to download updates!
