Jack, unfortunately, there is: SAS 9.2 TS1M0 (http://support.sas.com/documentation/installcenter/92/index.html)... which we adroitly avoided installing here at SAS Mecca; preferring to wait for TS2M0, instead.
Jack, best of luck in all your SAS endeavors... no matter what maintenance release you are on:-)
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
