Vivitar 2600-D compatible with K10D?

Possibly a question that's already been answered, but does anyone know if the Pentax-compatible Vivitar 2600-D flash (which I bought for my old MZ-M) is compatible with the K10D?

Compatible in what way?

According to this site: Photo Strobe Trigger Voltages the Vivitar 2600 has a trigger voltage of 148v, which is too much for a digital camera. But I don't know how the 2600-D differs from the 2600, so you need to check the trigger voltage before using it on camera.

Other than that, it ought to work just fine, though presumably it won't do P-TTL, which is no drawback in my book anyway.

Yes, "compatible" in the context of not blasting the camera's innards. I had visited the site you referred to in the past, but as you know only the non-D version is listed. Having trouble finding any voltage reference to the "D" version on any site. So I was hoping someone here would already know.
