      I think I already asked them all, Jeff!

      Lynn has the patience of a saint.

      Thanks Lynn. Up and running on development ver here, shape files are working
      correctly. I will find the time to read all recent posts before asking any
      stupid questions :>)

      See http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/development-version but please be aware
      that running the bleeding edge is sometimes dangerous. I've been known
      to break things so that it won't even run, but usually I get a fixed
      version out shortly thereafter.

      Also, please plan on keeping up with the postings in this group,
      especially before accepting a new version from About.

      If you're not comfortable renaming files and editing XML files, then
      running the development is probably not a good idea.
