Updates to David Taylor's Software - 2022

This page lists the major changes made to my applications during 2022.  Please note that as I am now retired, I am more likely to release beta updates rather than "formal" updated versions - please look here and register for update notification!  You can register free of charge to get automatic e-mails when this page changes and I would urge you to take advantage of this free service.  For my satellite software, please join the SatSignal self-help user group   For my other software please join the David Taylor's Software self-help group.

Just as Microsoft has dropped support for Windows-7 and earlier, my software is no longer tested or supported in any version of Windows prior to Windows-10.  Both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows are usually supported, and some programs can take advantage of the larger memory space available with 64-bit Windows.  My programs may continue to work in those earlier versions, but this is neither guaranteed nor supported.  Please update from XP, Vista, 7 or 8 now.
