Release 050204 is now available on:


About 10 new projections.  Also added a list of modification dates
of individual modules (from ident) to the web page.

As an aside: I looked into adding a "configure" setup but was completely
overwhelmed by its complexity.  After spending about 8 hours pouring 
documentation that pales the most complex programming language I finally
gave up.  Nice idea but far beyond the capabilities of this frumpy, 
little old

PS2: recent events caused me to check the performance of the "sterea"
projection on CA maritime province usage.  PEI appears to work OK except
for a 1-2mm error on a few test points.  Not sure of the pedigree of 
the test
points so I do not know who or what to blame.  This brings up another 
what precision is necessary for geodesic, cadastral and other projection
