07/22/95 Version 1.1
* LR calculations (linear regression)
* Clear stat memory with
* Edit memory M
* Edit stat memory
* Bug in Rectangular() function
* Bug, tangents-1 did not work
* Extensive help

* Degrees to degrees-min-sec conversion
* Display of recall buffer
* 26 calculator memories MA..MZ
* Input of hex digits 'a' - 'f'
* Binary mode
* Equation evaluator
* Removed the HEX/BIN/DEC converter
07/29/95 Version 1.2
* Digits in GEN/SCI/FIX limited to 15
* Improved equation evaluator
+ max. of 12 variables per equation
+ equation short description
+ decreased number of dialogues
* XY plot
* OCTal calculation mode
* New functions AND, OR and NOT
* Shortcut keys to switch to HEX, BIN
DEC and OCT mode.
* Selectable decimal separator
* New program icon
* Decimal separator not allowed in
HEX mode
* Changes in help screens and
documentation
08/11/95 Version 1.3
* Changes in help screens and
documentation
* Support for external functions.
This is possible by creating an
ADDON.OPO in your \OPO directory.
* Plot improvements
+ Grid lines
* Conversion degrees<->radians
* Faster keyboard response
* 20 equations
* Extra hotkeys for german users
+ ^ accessible by M
+ ~ accessible by z
+ ' accessible by Q
------------------------------------------
* dms->degrees conversion added to add-on
* bring support
* new about box
* disabled allowance for tan(90)
* MANUAL.RTF format documentation for
Calc3a. Registered users only!
* POL() and REC() return two results
The first is shown on the calculator
display and the other is saved to the
recall-buffer automatically. Press left
arrow to display the second
result.
08/21/95 Version 1.4.1
* Changes in help screens and documentation
* Equations are now stored in a database and
can be selected from a list.
* Plot improvements
+ Trace mode for f(x) moving cursor/visor
along the curve
+ Selectable logarithmic X/Y/XY scale
+ Change in order of dialogs for plot
settings
+ Huge steps with cursor with Shift-
Psion-Cursor
* Bugs solved
+ Pressing Esc in Preferences menu
caused a * MA Error *
+ Binary format upper bound set to
2**31. Was set to 2**30!
+ Setting "German keyboard" was not
saved to the settings file. Renamed
this setting to "Alternative layout"
+ Other small bugs
* New functions
+ logical XOR function
+ degrees converted to degrees-min-sec
will be shown on the calculator LCD
display until a key is pressed
+ shortcut key 'b' for conversion of
degrees-min-sec to degrees
+ calculation of percentages
e.g. 12% of $100 => 100<*>12<%>
* Solver for single variables using method
"SECANT" for finding the first single root
of a function.
* Export of memories to TXT file.
* Equation database with approximately 50
equations/conversions.
09/28/95 Version 1.4.2
* Support for parenthesis (25 levels)
* extra option in preferences-keyboard for
parenthesis mode
* Bug fixed in dBlist (ADDON)
10/22/95 Version 1.4.3
* Small bug fixes and typos solved
* CALC3A.INI can be placed on any drive
* Bug fixed in SOLVER, simple equations that
only needed one PASS will be solved
correctly
12/17/95 Version 1.5
* Expressions like x**2 are evaluated correctly
without using parenthesis!
* Manual converted from RTF to TXT format
* < and > key did not update memory contents on
status display
* Solver settings are saved to disk
* Solver "variable to solve" defaults to first
variable that is zero-valued
* Plot : g(x) also traceable
* Plot : plot equations from database
* Small bug fixes and typos solved
* Constants list
* Input and display of negative HEX/BIN/OCT
numbers
* Equation database with comma support.
if you set decimal separator to comma, you
should copy COMMA.EQN to \OPD\CALC3A.EQN.
+ EQNCONV utility
01/10/96 Version V1.5.5
* Integrate acoording to simpsons rule
* Small bug fixes in equation database
* Improved display of solver results
* Engineering notation
* Shift-Psion-F to cycle backwards through
display formats
* Diferent symbols for intersectionpoints plot
(f(x)=rectangle, g(x)=cross)
25/01/96 Version V1.5.6
* Interest calculation added to ADDON
Diamond-I
* Enhancement of OPL interface functions
* Input overflow message
* 20 digits allowed in decimal mode (was 15)
* Solved incorrect behaviour of key
in Hex, Bin and Oct mode.
* Removal of "ADD" message when closing parenthesis
* Bug in parenthesis counter on statusdisplay
12/04/96 Version V1.5.7
* Psion-M displays return value on display
29/04/96 Version V1.5.7b
* Import ascii text file in addon
