Still working through a few bugs that were inserted when I made the larger than expected changed for version 12.42.

12.43 DDS can now handle BBO hands when there is a "Sitout" and a Robot finishes the deal. A few other bugs fixed.

12.42 This version of DDS adds a new capability for PBN files with ScoreTable and TotalScoreTable tags. These types of PBN files are normally downloaded from local club games. A few other features have been added when downloading single games from BBO. Also, all Hungarian translations have been brought up to date.

12.41f Fixes a 'decimal separator' problem in the Filter for those countries using a comma rather than a period. Also many improvement in the File -> Print Deal feature.

12.41 Improvements made to better handle file merging. To merge one or more bridge files into a single file, click the Open Files button and then select (ctrl-click) all the bridge files (SQL, PBN, and/or LIN) that you want to include. In this way you can build a large database which will make the Filter feature more useful.

12.40 It's been 3 months since the last update and there are many features and enhancements. Many thanks to my beta testers, especially Bob and Rex. With enhancements comes the need for translations. If you are able to make translations please contact me at bob at uselessbay dot us.

If you have accumulated a large database of hands you will experience a dramatic improvement in speed - especially with the Filter. Several changes were made to the Overcall and Opening Lead tabs on the Filter, including many new filter items. For example, you may now filter on hands where the opening lead was or was not a double dummy lead. Finally, this version includes several tweaks to enhance the overall program.
