Revision History

NOTE TO EXISTING CUSTOMERS: Since December 2005 the program has a feature that will check your version and, if needed, offer to automatically update your copy to the latest version. You can check if that option is available in your version by looking for a "Check for Updates" option within the "Help" pull-down menu. Otherwise, you will need to download and install the full installation this time (and the option will be available for future updates). It's safe to use either update method with your current data, as the installation process will detect and preserve any existing data and settings you have.

Please note that if you have a registered version less than 6.0, then you will need to pay for an upgrade license for each PC that you use the program on. As a registered user of a previous version, you may upgrade at a significant discount.

VERSION 6.7  (Released: 3/14/2016)
