To find out what's new in any version of SD,
follow the What's New link on my website, or
read the history.doc file distributed with SD.

If you don't want an older version of SD to be
overwritten, install the new version to a new
folder - this is a standard installation option.

If you do accidentally overwrite an older version,
you can easily get it again from

is almost always better than previous versions.
Bugs in earlier versions are not investigated
unless they exist in the latest version.

Regardless of the version used, it's worthwhile
doing a few tests before the contest.
