V18.22  11 April 2016

CQMM DX Contest:
     Not to be confused with the CQ-M or CQWW contests.

     Added band/multiplier worked/needed analysis as
     callsigns are typed.

     In addition, prefix mults (which count by band)
     have the prefix highlighted, and country mults
     (which count once only) have the full callsign

RSGB International Sprints:
     Separate templates supplied for the RSGB 80m and
     International sprints.

Zero-Points QSOs:
    These include, for example, non-Commonwealth QSOs
    in BERU or non-W/VE QSOs in ARRL DX. While logging,
    the callsign turns red (as for dupes).  Thanks

Previously Logged QSOs.
    Zero-point QSOs, including dupes, which are not
    multipliers (as in CQWW), are "dimmed" - printed
    in red, to make it obvious they are non-scoring

    Callsigns that are dupes are flagged instantly
    as they are typed, and they change to red,
    rather than the bright red previously used. This
    is controlled by the SD_DUPECLR parameter in
    SD.INI. The default value is now 4 (red), is
    was 12 (bright red).

    For this to work as intended, YOU SHOULD EDIT
    THE SD-DUPECLR parameter in your SD.INI file.
    Change its value to 4.

Potential Dupes:
    V18.09 described how a small square, displayed
    above the first character of the callsign,
    indicates that the callsign you're still typing
    could be a dupe. Its colour is now red, not as a
    warning, but to make it more noticeable. Once the
    square disappears, you know the callsign will not
    be a dupe, no matter what characters are added.

    This feature is useful only when searching and
    pouncing and, in particular, near the end of a
    contest when you're running out of stations to
    work.  While running, it's not relevant and
    you'll not notice it.

Editing QSOs:
    Fixed some unreported scoring errors following
    callsign edits which created or removed dupes.

SPDX Contest:
    Fixed display error while logging SP districts.

Commonwealth Contest:
    HQ stations are now highlighted as bonus QSOs.
    Thanks G0HDB.

JIDX Contest:
    Due to broken code in V18.21. non-JA calls did
    not change to red as they were being typed, and
    non-JA QSOs were not flagged as zero-point QSOs.
    Fixed, thanks VK2AR.
