v. 2.3.2
  - improvements to web server functionality
  - Help file updated

Oct 31/16 
v. 2.3.1 (XE4-10) (internal release)
  - in Plot window, changed brightness control to a slider
  - added Web Server for remote data viewing
  - Help file partially updated

Nov 22/15 
v. 2.2.1 (XE2-T04)
  - fixed bug in popup menu, where keyboard shortcuts were cut off
  - visual changes/adjustments to enhance operation 
      on a small (eg: 7") Win10 tablet.
       - tablet should be set to Desktop mode (Tablet mode = OFF).
       - works ok in Landscape or Portrait, with Taskbar at bottom
  - no changes to functionality.
  - Help file not updated. 

Aug 30/15
v. 2.1.2 (XE2-11) 
  - Revisions to plotting... 
    - added "Weeks" as a plot interval
    - added runtime adjustment for line thickness
       (default is "1", can now make "2" if desired)
    - a captured Plot image now includes the Start 
        date/time, as well as the End date/time. 
 - Removed the "Minimize" button from sub forms. The 
    application should be minimized or not, as a whole.

July 21/14
v. 2.0.3 (XE2-09) 
  - if a monitoring session is running when closing the program, 
     you are now asked: "are you sure?"  

v. 2.0.2 (XE2-08)
  - fixed issues with handling of Decimal Separator 
     (program would crash/hang in countries that use "," (comma)) 
  - Log AutoSave function modified...
     The Log is now saved to file hourly, with 2 options: 
      - one continuous log file, or
      - break the log into separate files every 24hr
    The "continuous" Log continues to grow in memory, 
    as data is added. Breaking the Log means only small 
    chunks are maintained in memory. This may improve 
    program performance for long-term monitoring sessions. 

v. 2.0.1 
  - Revised K145TMstd to work with K145 and VK01, and renamed 
  - Log, Plot, Thermometer, etc functions separated out to individual windows
  - New Plot engine, revised how plot interval works
  - Made Log and Plot windows resizable 
  - Revised Config window 
  - Included VK011 config window for firmware configuration
  - Help file updated to reflect program changes

v. 1.0.1 (02)
  - Program has been renamed to "Standard" (K145TMStd) from "Lite" 
     (based on v. 1.7.0 (79) of the old K145TMLite program)
  - Help file updated to reflect program name change

a.  This version (TMstd) is freeware.
b.  Read about the DS18S20 1-wire Temperature Sensor here
c.  The original developer of the K145 firmware (Quozl) has a project page:  
d.  If you're unsure about the usability of your serial port, you might want to try connecting 
      with the K145 Tester, or HyperTerminal.  If you can connect, and the data is not corrupted 
      in the display, then your port should be OK.  
      If you're not familiar with HyperTerminal, there's a tutorial here.  
      See also MinTerm Lite
e.  There is an RS232 tutorial here.
