Traqview 3.40 Enhancements
Traqview / TraqStudio had to be completely rewritten to and converted to the .NET architecture. This consumed the majority of the effort in this release, plenty of features have been added however. A more intensive feature focused release will follow along with some minor bug fixes.

TraqStudio is now combined with Traqview for simple installation. You can easily upgrade to TraqStudio at anytime right from the program.
