I've very happy to announce that, due the outstanding efforts of all  
ka-Map developers, we are now releasing a first beta version of 1.0  
of ka-Map.  This latest release sports an entirely new interface and  
icon set, a new search system, a print system, a tooltip system, and  
a new overlay system based on XML.

If you are currently using 0.1 or 0.2 version, you will need to  
update you configuration file when updating to this version.

We would really like to release 1.0 final in a fairly short timeframe  
so please update, test and provide us with feedback.

Thank you,

the ka-Map developers
