Scythebill 13.9.4 - small bug fixes

Scythebill 13.9.4 is now available!  As always, download here, and let me know if you have any problems, either on Google+Facebook, or by email.  This version includes a number of small bug fixes, including one that will become important in a month!

Bugs fixed

  • Google has changed its policies around Maps and Geolocation APIs - and as a result, as of June 11th, earlier versions of Scythebill will stop displaying location maps or being able to use Google to "geolocate" (find latitude/longitude given a location or vice versa).
  • The "New Location" dialog would have the OK and Cancel buttons hidden off the bottom for users that chose the largest font size.
  • Scythebill now gives a useful warning message if you move or delete a ".bsxm" file, instead of just surprising you with the "New/Open" screen.
  • Scythebill will (I hope) no longer show an odd error message in some rare cases when typing species names (perhaps, in particular, in extended taxonomies?).
