1. Collector will now report CPU speed per the CPU ID results string when possible. This will result in newer laptops no longer reporting "running" speed and reporting the "advertised" speed that the system was sold as. This addresses laptops that change their CPU speeds to save power.

Software Scan
1. Modified promotion registry tests to be able to retrieve the data value when the data is in the (Default) value name.
2. Fixed the retrieval of file names that contain a '%' character.
3. Added MUI recognition.

Web Console

1. Fixed problem found with exclusion of collector created local software products coming up with a platform of DOS.
2. Fixed a bug in the compliance report. It was failing when large numbers of suites were present.
3. When custom reports are scheduled to go into storage, the data is formatted prior to storing. This allows large
reports to be opened faster.
4. Fixed - On custom reports with more than 199 records, the header was incorrectly reporting the number of records.
5. Fixed - Numeric data on PDF reports was not right-aligned in some cases.
6. Added "additional SW Info" as an avaialble column on all software custom reports.

1. Fixed a problem with the Software Compliance portion of the PRU failing on Oracle 10G. 0
