v1.0.8 Release



   pLOT v1.0.8a is out with two major changes/additions and a few extra shortcut keys.  First, the graphics have been overhauled.  The lines and graphics have been smoothed out (except brackets which are still in progress) and should eliminate the old Floodfill problem.

   pLOT v1.0.7a changes a few things (hopefully for the better).

   First, a new graphic is available.  The Headless Arrow graphic is simply an arrow without those pointy arowheady things protruding.  It is similar to the type of arrow used by some other plasmid mappers.  See below the Cas9 vs AmpR graphics.

1.0.5d fixes a bug in redrawing annotated features after doing a full-sequence reverse/complement conversion.  This was just a graphics glitch and files/annotations had previously saved correctly so no need to worry about that =)
*Please note that you should have installed 1.0.4 in order to apply this patch*
pLOT v 1.0.5d
pLOT v1.0.4 this is required to use the 1.0.5d patch

It seems there was an error occurring when a new sequence was entered.  This is now fixed in this patch.  Apologies for the issue.
