Update on Randy by: Randy.
Hi everyone. I am slowly on the mend. I'm trying to be a good home patient by doing my breathing exercises and walking.
Deanna won't let me go work at our store but she has given me the green light to work on the website and do remote support.
I just want to thank everyone for taking care of her while I was down with your extra donations and messages.
She is quite the bread winner on her own but halving any family's income is a scaring thing.
Thank you!

Release Notes

3-20-17 Beta version 0.9.8 released:

Added options during pattern saving for specifying the width of a color border around each symbol in the pdf pattern, and for specifying how often the bold/heavier lines should appear in the pdf pattern grid.
DMC/Anchor color codes and names are now displayed in the main windows (instead of RGB).
Added the ability to specify fabric of a particular squares per inch/cm in the dimensions computer.
We should now do better at finding a pdf viewer to auto-display saved pdf patterns.
More settings are remembered so that they don't need to be reconfigured each time the program is run.
Bug fixes.

This is the first version for which the downloadable executable for Windows does not run on Windows XP.
