12.33a Hungarian translations completed. Thank you Zoltan.

12.29b Swedish translations added. Thank you Lars.

12.23a Bug obscuring part of the Download screen has now been fixed. Please resize the Download screen, dragging corners with your mouse, to get the proper size. DDS will remember your position and size of each screen. Also bug was fixed because this latest zooming feature is not supported by Win7 and earlier.

12.23 Swedish translations added. Thank you Lars. New feature added that allows you to increase or decrease the size of the items on each screen. Just click <Ctrl> + to increase or <Ctrl> - to decrease the font sizes, buttons and other graphics on each screen.

About DDS 12

Double Dummy Solver 12 represent a complete rewrite of earlier versions of DDS - resulting in much faster, flicker-free operation. Of course there are some new screens, new options, new features, and new colors.

Translations are handled with the Poedit system. I still need help with translations for many languages to include the new words and phrases in this version. Please contact me (bob at uselessbay dot us) if you are willing to help with some translating.
