Both the registered and trial shareware version of APE 1.15 are now ready.

The new trial version is available at

Registered Users just send me e-mail for the new version.  If you have
 sent a request or e-mail in the last 5-6 days then I still have
 it sitting around, so no need to send again.

A complete changes file, and new versions of the Users Manual for
 APE and the ProSystem are available at

I hope you all enjoy the new features, or at least find them useful.  This
 upgrade is free for all currently registered users.
