* * * * * Release Information for International Users * * * * *
Version 3.01(a) of Waypoint for Windows fixed a bug that affected calculations in the ETA module for Working Routes in version 3.01.

The ETA module conflicted with the International/Regional Date Settings in Windows which caused the ETA's to be calculated with whole decimal speeds or in some cases a lock up of the program.  If you are still using an early version you should download the latest version.
