BRPG v1.4h is now available for download. It is to be considered in beta status for the time being.
v1.4h is intended to fix a number of bugs that were found in v1.4g shortly after its release. v1.4h contains only bug fixes; no new features have been added.
The format for Encounters and Deployments has not changed since v1.4g. The "User Cast.cxt" file has not changed since v1.4g, so copying over the "User Cast.cxt" file from a prior BRPG version may be a fast and efficient way to preserve your media if you are updating from that version of BRPG.
BRPG v1.4h is currently only available as a patch for v1.4g. You must already have v1.4g installed in order to use this patch.

Although the ReadMe file with the information below is contained in the v1.4h download, some people might find it useful to see the changes prior to downloading the zip file.
