        Release Notes: Lots of refactoring was done. Helper classes were moved from the org.dinopolis.gpstool package to subpackages. Only the applications remain in the main package. Separate jars were made for utils, gpsinput (communication with GPS devices), gpstool (command line application), and gpsylon (moving map application). The resource files were renamed from /.gpsmap/ to ~/.gpsylon/ Users need to copy their private settings to the new location/name. The default world map (from gpsdrive) is used as the top level map.
