Hello All,

I am announcing the availability of APCC Standard and APCC Pro (links below).

Most of the changes are bug fixes and are itemized here:

APCC - BUG Fix - Tracking rates were not working correctly for the GTOCP3 in

APCC - BUG FIX - Prevent Mach 2 from setting HOME to be anything other than Park 3.

APCC - BUG FIX - The ASCOM driver can send values in exponential notation when the value is near zero. APCC was rejecting this exponential notation.

APCC - BUG Fix - Commands starting with "G_" were rejected.

APCC - BUG Fix - Clear flashing scope view when user clears all errors.

APCC - BUG FIX - Settings were not always being correctly saved.

APCC - BUG Fix - Prevent possible overflow in Meridian Limits Add Point dialog.

APCC - BUG FIX - Horizons - some of the menus did nothing.

APCC - BUG FIX - Horizons - Fixed a number of display bugs and made the displayed data more useful.

APCC - BUG Fix - fixed an integer overflow error that would happen occasionally.

APCC Pro - BUG FIX - APPM - Slew would sometimes fail to appear to complete thus stalling data mapping runs.

APCC Pro - BUG Fix - tracking rate correction was not always saved correctly.

APCC - Improvement - Moved virtual port handlers to their own threads to reduce latency when user interface elements are updated.

APCC - Improvement - In the Meridian Tracking Limits Explorer dialog window, add a button to update Meridian Inclination.
