  • Changed default font sizes for graph title, axis labels, and legend text.

  • Added code to prompt the missing ps2pdf program on Window 7 64-bit machines.

November 12, 2011   

  • Bug fixed: docking panel refresh issue for 64-bit Windows OSes caused by kernel stack blowing out due to lengthy nesting level.
