I did a download for the latest version. I was running version 1.2.

After downloading the file and installing it on my TX it show that it is version 1.3. This show in the about section of the program and in the information list showing versions and record size.

The program seems to be working OK but it is not version 1.4. I did try the download a secong time and it is the same file with the below listed information.
