Release notes for the Atopo map application for android
This is a reverse chronological list of changes to help inform those who install
and use this software of what changes are being made in new versions.
September 9, 2018
A huge amount of work has been done to allow the program to startup if not all
levels are present. It will now work if only l1 and l2 are present on internal
storage for example.
The specific versions that start up in Tucson, Reno, Salt Lake City and so forth
have now been eliminated and those choices are also gone from the menu.
This is no longer relevant with the new behavior of the program to remember
the last location it was being used at and to start up there.

I add /storage to the list of places that atopo looks for the "topo" directory
in order to find the maps. This is a first attempt to allow internal storage to be used.
Up to now, maps have only been installed by placing them on a micro-SD card.
This is for Paul, who tells me that he uses a package called "termux" on his phone,
which runs an SSH server (and other handy linux tools) allowing him to copy the maps
via "scp" as a tarball.
This release is also the first that saves the current location each time atopo shuts down
and then starts up there the next time. This makes the old business of having a customized
startup location for each user obsolete. On the next release, atopo as shipped will start
up someplace that is "entertaining", but then will follow the user around.
