Release Notes for 2.10.1
  New Features:
    - Wildcard support for the Wanted Callsign Alert. Matching against the start
       of a Callsign only. Multiple wildcards can be defined. The wildcard is
       only supported as the last character in the Callsign.
       eg "VK3%" is valid, "VK%AMA" and "VK%A%A" are invalid.
    - Single option to initiate simultaneous DXKeeper log filter, Pathfinder
       and DXView lookups when your QSO partner Callsign changes. See the
       "Applications -> DXLab Suite" section of the Settings.
    - Option to not lookup previous qso data from logbook. Band/Mode/Worked/Cfm
       QSO data from the logbook are still used, but Name, QTH, Grid, DXCC, Cont,
       State and Zones are ignored. Location data (DXCC, Zones, etc) are derived
       from a simple cty.dat lookup when this option is enabled.
       (Default: OFF, Settings Section: Logging).
    - Out of Shack option Alert trigger based on Distance to decoded call (not B4).
       (Default: OFF, Window: Settings, Section: Alerts, Misc Alerts, Out of Shack).
    - Maximum number of JTAlert instances increased from 10 to 15.

  Changes:
    - Auto-start entries are now independent when running against WSJT-X & JTDX.
       It is now possible, for example, to have WSJT-X auto-start or have JTDX
       auto-start, depending on which shortcut is used to start JTAlertX.
    - Changes to DXLab specific lookups (DXKeeper, DXView, Pathfinder). See the
       "Applications -> DXLab Suite" section of the Settings and enable the
       required lookups to perform on a DX Call change.
    - FT8 spots upload to HamSpots changed from every 15sec to once per minute.
       (only one occurrence of a Callsign in this one minute period is spotted)
    - HamApps installed applications version data now stored in a disk-based
       file. The Registry is still used as a fallback if versions file missing.

  Fixes:
    - Band Activity Bar band colors not reflecting the FT8 counts when
       they exceeded the JT65/JT9 counts (2.10.0 defect).
    - End TX/RX Alert ignoring WSJT-X TX Enabled setting (2.10.0 defect).
    - Wanted Callsign alert not obeying any set filters.
    - Intermittent non-delivery of spots to HamSpots.net
    - DXLab PathFinder not performing Callsign lookup if no previous QSOs
       in DXKeeper log.
    - Non-delivery of Support emails when containing a very large attachment.
