V2.1.6 Nov 2006 Add: Com ports 9 to 16; command to specify a folder for storing memory and .CSV files. Change: use a different screen font; Help file format is now .CHM instead of .HLP

V2.1.5 Oct 2005 Add Open command to File menu; show Username on Help/About window. Bugfix: error 381 if right-click outside memory grid.

V2.1.4 Jul 2005. Change import logic to force the decimal point to the same as the input locale; allow case insensitive CSV import for the tuning step field; bugfix: if the last saved file was on a removable device, and on the next restart of the program that device contained no media, then the program failed.

V2.1.3 Mar 2005. Add link to downloads page in the help menu, add Find text/Find next commands, add first time use screen, automatically open the last file used when the program starts, add commands to save the screen size and position.

V2.1.2 Oct 2004. Changed the Import/Export CSV file to add an optional field for Tuning Step. Added a facility to automatically choose mode and frequency when the frequency of VFO A is changed and to round down the tuning step for FMN frequencies to avoid the rig rounding up the frequency to a multiple of the tuning step. Similar logic is now applied during Import if the mode is not specified by the user.

V2.1.1 Jun 2004.  Bugfix: Error if bank 1 created, and then followed immediately by an import.

V2.1.0 Sep 2003.  Add print of Config and BC frequencies

V2.0.9 Aug 2003.  Adds the ability to export in FTBasic format. Removes the ability to write back to the rig if not registered

V2.0.7 May 2003.  Adds the ability to configure the rig's Set Config settings.

V2.0.6 May 2003.  Changes the format of the saved image file. To read image files produced by V2.0.6 you must use V2.0.6 or later. All previous versions of the program cannot interpret the new file format.

V2.0.5 May 2003.  Adds the ability to add, mask and unmask PMS entries, add a bank, sort memories by frequency or name, find duplicate frequencies, import frequencies from a CSV file, export frequencies to a CSV file
