They are up to 7.0. We have never had a problem using a higher
sub-version (e.g. 7.2 ) - but sometimes you have to lie to the
installer, and some of their support droids freak out.

Hsphere is far from flawless - but we have used and supported all of
the major CP's. Hsphere is about the best... At least until I find the
time to write my own.
