Well, I've only tried three smallish pieces of this new stuff so far, so
I'm still feeling rather tentative about making a statement. It's pretty
clear to me that the smell is gone and that the paper is different
physically, but I haven't used enough of it to say anything about
whether the sizing problems have been fixed. I did find yesterday that,
unlike the old Arches, it won't print tricolor unsized; my magenta
stains this paper. But that wouldn't be a problem for most people who
size anyway.
