The U.S. Postal Service has announced a price increase effective April 17, 2011. Prices will increase for First-Class Mail (stamps remain .44), postcards, letters to Canada or Mexico and other mailing services. For additional information, visit the USPS web site. StarShip version 9.9.92 supports the April 17th price changes. This release also includes updates to the following postage statements:
