[aprssig] WinAPRS 2.8.0 released

Hi Mark, I just installed 2.80 and yes it works but for the Vantage Pro
station the program reads the wrong data, it is the whole year rain amount,
it would be nice to read the daily rain rate and even better the storm rain
amount, I hate to have to reset the yearly rain amount to 0 every time I
reset Win APRS., also when you reset the HI/LOW in the weather setting it
comes out with funny numbers like 3263 for inside temp, 127 for wind speed
etc. This was happening with the last rev Keith sent me.
 By the way what do you need for the new registration number for N4JCV and
N4ARC? The read me file does not show up when pushing "Tell me now"

First I want to appologize about this taking so long. Right after 
Dayton we had a death in the family (my Grandmother) and that caused 
lots of delays.

Anyway, WinAPRS 2.8.0 is up on http://winaprs.org/downloads/WinAPRS/

Recemt addoitons

WinAPRS Version 2.8.0 - May  2005
MacAPRS Version 3.8.0

     * USGS Digital Elevation Model (DEM) files now used as releif 
maps for TIGER map backgrounds
     * ArcInfo file support (.E00)
     * TIGER MAP DATA can now be automatically downloaded from within 
the program making Tiger maps much easier to use.
     * Davis Vantage Pro weather station working
     * Fixed major bug in Compressed format parsing (BASE-91)

WinAPRS Version 2.7.7 - Aug 25, 2004
MacAPRS Version 3.7.7

     * Major improvements in Tiger map drawing. Specifically the first 
time a map was drawn it took awhile to figure out all of the shaded 
areas. This has been speed up dramatically and at the same time uses 
considerable less memory. HOWEVER, it takes a little longer to 
process the map files into binary. It DOES NOT require the ascii 
files to create the new version of the binary files.
     * Back ground drawing. Much of the tiger map drawing is now done 
in the background. This speeds up many of the map operations.
     * Support for Toporama Canadian map images This covers 100% of Canada
     * Added support for Census Bureau Gazetteer place name file. This 
includes searching by city.
     * Added support for GPS data $GPNVP, this is a special, non 
standard NMEA sentance used in Korea and Japan. This was added at the 
request of Korean users.
     * Added TRUE rotated labels option for Tiger Map display
