[c] feature changed

[0.35] 07.06.2008
[c] Better cleaning for DIA and DS files saved from emails (no need to manually remove headers)
[c] Log file is updated with the PTT number even if it fails to be imported (helps to identify
which PTT records are causing troubles)
[b] S-data in DIA and DS formats can ocassionally contain PTT number (thanks to Tony Parr)
[b] No S-data for some of the points (thanks to Tony Parr)
[b] Remove Duplicates: In case both Full DS and DIAG description exist, remove Full DS, as DIAG can have useful alternative coords.
[b] Number of sensor fields was incorrectly set to 28, should be 32 (max) (thanks to Angel de Frutos)
[b] Remove spatially redundant points produced an error when used with "Use distance" option (thanks to Paul Mikoda)
[b] Incorrect calculation of valid and invalid fixes for the log file - fixed.
[b] Missing value for "Nb mes>-120dB" doesn't crush import DIA process anymore (thanks to Tony Parr)
[b] Missing value for "Altitude" doesn't crush import DIA process anymore

[0.34] 22.01.2007
[+] Filter: Remove spatially redundant points based on location or argos class with or without saving time information in new field.
[c] Sort external files (not imported with Argos-tools) - now can be done correctly if both Date (type: Date) and Time (type: String) fields are present. In Arcview Field Calculator Date values can be created from other string values with date.make([Loc_date],"yyyy-MM-dd") command, Time - [Loc_date].right(8).asstring, or equivalent.
[c] Sorting PTT list before import, to understand progress of import better
[c] Write PTT name in log when starting importing, useful for debugging, to determine which PTT makes Argos-Tools to crush.
[b] Crushing on records with dates containing ???. Now skip those points.
[b] Incorrect "Import of delimited data" option due to some remains of protection procedure.
[b] Import of Telnet files updated with loging, some bugs fixed
[b] Some problems with number precision when building tracks from points.

[0.33] 07.06.2006
[c] Calculations of distances, angles, azimuths are now done with using spherical geometry and so projection independent (0.5% error in calculations). We're planning to refine it futher basing on ellipsoidal Vincenty methods.
[b] Now correctly handling DIA files with missing Lat1, Long1, but present Lat2, Long2 fields
[b] Removing duplicates algorithm improved, some points, after importing files with missing Lat1, Long1, were treated as closest to previous ones, while they are actually the same.

[0.31, 0.32] 20.04.2006
[+] Progress indicator for cleaning process (during import)
[+] Message showing which PTT is being imported and some progree information
[+] Sort ARGOS files. Separate menu option to sort files by date/time
[+] Remove duplicates. Separate menu option to remove duplicating records based on date-time pair. Useful for postprocessing shapefiles imported with invalid fixes.

[c] Help systems switched back to Arcview message box
[+] Handling invalid formating with blank lines separating the description of the point
[b] Invalid sorting of values with dates that include both 1999 and 2000 values (Excel format) (thanks to M.Parilov from Khingan Nature Reserve)
[b] Skipping calculation when giving time in 0:00:00 format instead of 00:00:00 (Excel format) (thanks to M.Parilov from Khingan Nature Reserve)
[b] Cancelling GMT offset produce an error
[b] Invalid Time values after importing delimited file

[0.23] 16.04.2003
[b] Import of DIA data with missing telemetry values (thanks for Peter Bente from Alaska Department of Fish and Game)
