    Release Notes: The default behavior is now to keep edits made on time spans (only ESC cancels changes done). More strings are now translatable, but there is much more to be done. Timezone set manually is now properly saved. Hourglass now exits gracefully in case of shutdown. It is now possible to enter an integer for a full hour time (e.g. 9 for 9:00).

    Release Notes: This version was ported to Java 5.0, fixes a bug that caused data loss when Chinese characters were used, disallows multiple instances of the app, adds row and column sums in the timecard, adds the ability to edit historical time entries, and now allows the user to choose 12 vs 24 hour time format.
