As far as I know, this is not the case. Beta 2 has none of Dmitry's work.

Current CVS has some of Dmitry's fixes, but not all of them. Changes which I
THINK have been applied are:
	General Class1 changes
	        Decoding of T.30 DIS frame
	        HDLC timeout
	        Number of training attempts
	General Class 2.0 changes
	        Class 2.0 PPM query

I'm pretty sure the RTN stuff has not yet been applied, mostly because of
conflicts between his submissions and the CVS fixes to address the libtiff
problems. Also, there was some concern that his approach might fix RTN
behaviour with some modems, but introduce problems with others, and I'm not
sure where the discussion ended up on that one.
