Important Notice:

Fix # 21: Clipboard function compatibility with Windows XP. This fix required redesigning the Janus Page Designer module. Consequently, users who have created custom Print Chart pages will lose their designed pages with this download. We regret that this is unavoidable and regret any inconvenience.

Fix # 24: Reported longitude positions are now rounded down to the minute. Janus now rounds down instead of up or down to the nearest minute. This modification has been made to accord with traditional methods of longitudinal calculation practices.
