12.99L  Changes for saving PBN files for Jack (Ctrl-Alt-J)

12.99i  More problems fixed concerning play records.

12.99e  Error on "Show DD Tricks" fixed.

12.99c  A few cosmetic changes when the size of the main screen is resized.

12.99b  Hopefully this is an early Christmas present with the play record bug finally fixed. This version also improves resizing of the main screen.

12.99a  Removes TeamLink tags from PBN files when "Save entire file for Jack" is clicked.

12.99  This version solves the problem with play records not being saved correctly from some BBO deals. This bug affected all hands in which there was no claim made -where all 52 cards were played - for deals after November 20.

12.98  Several primarily minor bug fixes with this version.  The biggest problem was the failure to calculate scores correctly when the director assigned a certain number of tricks. This primarily happens when you exceed the time limit in a BBO tournament. This version also improves the display for those with very high resolution monitors.

12.97c  Bug fixed when undoing played cards.

12.97  Corrections made to handle hi-resolution monitors.

12.96e  A new option provides more space for the west hand. Formerly there was not enough room to display a suit with 10 or more cards.This version also corrects some problems with the Letter card style and also Undo trick.

12.96b  This version cleans up a problem with Swedish duplicate games and also does a better job of displaying West's cards when holding a long suit.

12.96  It's been almost 2 months since the last update. This version adds a new capability to the Filter feature. It is now possible to filter deals based upon LTC: either Opener's, Responder's, or the combined LTC for the declaring side. On the main menu of the Filter screen, click on Points and select from among TP, K-R, HCP, or LTC.
