FoxtrotGPS 1.0.1 is a bug-fix release; issues resolved since 1.0.0 include:

    * Several translations were incomplete in FoxtrotGPS 1.0.0, but
      have now been completed; these are:

        - Hungarian, thanks to Gy?rgy Ball?
        - Spanish, thanks to Dailos Franchy
        - French, thanks to Steve Petruzzello

    * A bug causing failed downloads to appear permanently stuck
      has been fixed, thanks to Mikael Berthe.

    * A bug causing large, fast tileset-downloads to hang the
      user interface has been fixed, also thanks to Mikael Berthe.

    * A crash triggered by slow hostname-resolution, found thanks to
      Timo Juhani Lindfors, has been fixed.

    * Several resource-leaks, found thanks to Alexandre Maret, have been fixed.

    * When friend-finder icons are updated to new positions, they are
      now correctly (and consistently) erased from the old positions.
      Thanks to Ben McCarthy for finding this bug.

    * FoxtrotGPS can now be built against libgps 2.96 to support
      use with gpsd 2.96, thanks to Gleb Smirnoff.

    * A standard "--version" command-line flag is now supported.

    * "foxtrotgps --help" no longer fails when no display is available.

    * Various holes in the documentation have been filled--including
      the creation of a HACKING guide for those interested in contributing,
      thanks to Brian H Wilson.
