> Here comes another team work effort with a new and much improved version

> 
> There are quite a few changes here, a short list of these are:
> 
> Major gui work
> - Removed grouplayout from the gui, that makes it work with older java
>       - Tested with Macs in particular (OS X 10.4 using java 1.5)
>       - Works with xandros on eee pc's too (rxtx may need copying)
> - Changed to gridbag, flow and boxlayouts to handle resize of windows
> - Set minimumsizes to make it look better
> - Set the system default apperance, windows will look native on the
> various platforms
> 
> GPS work
> - Some GPS units send empty strings when speed is less than 1 knot
> - Options window should not list serial ports if the gps connection is
> open, that could create interesting error messages
> 
> And last but not least:
> 
> IAC Fleetcode bulletins
> - IAC Fleet code formatted weather data can now be received as bulletins

> P.s. The RXTX install should be fine as is on most installs.
> However, some PC's have trouble finding the RXTX-files used to handle
> the serial port. If you can launch the application but the options

> For now there is a manual procedure for that. 
> 
> For linux using java 1.6:
> 
> 1. cd to the jpskmail folder
> 2. copy the files to the system java path:
> sudo cp librxtxSerial.so /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.10/jre/lib/i386/
> sudo cp lib/RXTXcomm.jar /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun-1.6.0.10/jre/lib/ext
> 
> For windows:
> 
> 1. copy rxtxSerial.dll to %JAVA_HOME%\bin
> (%JAVA_HOME% is the folder where JRE is installed on your system; e.g.
> c:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.1_01)
> 2. copy RXTXcomm.jar to %JAVA_HOME%\lib\ext
> 
> Using java 1.6 like this:
> Copy rxtxSerial.dll to c:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_01\bin\
> Copy RXTXcomm.jar to c:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_01\lib\ext\
