      Release Notes: UTS offset now allows for 1/2 timezone. Various minor bug fixes were made for PalmOS versions less than or equal to 3.2.

      •  07 Jan 2004 02:33

        Release Notes: This version fixes the "now" mode so that the Palm can auto-off (and it no longer drains battery). Also, times for Viking, Sojourner, and Beagle II were 12 hours ahead. This has been fixed. MER was/is still believed to be accurate with the rover clock.
