    Release Notes: The timezone is now stored in a string, and it's at the end where it makes sense to be. A minor memory leak was fixed. An alert server was added at user request. This server displays unobtrusive messages for a few seconds in the corner of your screen. Multiple messages queue up. This server is good for people who have a heavy message density, but whose messages aren't vital. Some weird cpsend regressions were fixed. The code was almost completely rewritten.
