The latest version behaves so: Once that you save a file, not only the
original file (with all the changes that you may have made) will be
saved but also a second file will be saved by the name
"originalfilename".Graph.Set. Other than the name may suggest this file
not only contains all settings that you made to the graphics (excluding
current zoom level) but also all data in a special binary form. When you
load back a file for that a .Graph.set exists all graphic settings will
be restored and the file will be loaded REALLY FAST. If you do not like
this but want to load the original text file then activate the
"Override.." option of the file menu.

This and also a lot of other minor bugs has been corrected.

The MTIE computation now works ubelieveable fast thanks to a binary
decomposition algorithm.

The latest version of EZGPIB allows to call external programs from
within a script. Look at Example14 for that feature.
