Country maps have been added in 1.9!

The following release will be 2.0 and focuses on translation updates
(send them in), bugfixes and map updates. Let me know if any of the maps
need improvements!

Sources are 11 Megabyte now, because of the added maps. Here is the full

- Changes for xlog version 1.9 - 2009/01/09
  * Czech translation updates by Martin, OK1RR.
  * cty.dat has been updated to version 1817.
  * When doing a TSV export, records can now be sorted by DXCC and
    Sorting by callsign is especially useful for printing multiple QSO's
    on one label when using glabels. Thanks Stephane, F8FCE.
    You can determine how many QSO's per label are printed by changing
    the TSV export settings in the Dialogs and Windows -> export page.
  * Patch by Jon, LA4RT so xlog can send latin-1 character to cwdaemon.
  * xlog can now extract the version of cty.dat, it will be displayed
    when showing the about dialog.
  * It is now possible to load logs by alphabet or by "last modification
    date", the setting for this is in the Logs page of the preferences
    dialog. Thanks Pierfrancesco Caci, IK5PVX for suggesting.
  * The print dialog now adds a page where you can decide what columns
    to print. Suggested by Ed, W3NR and Boris, 4Z5ST.
  * Ctrl-a is no longer used for adding a QSO. Instead, you should use
    ctrl-w (write to log). This means ctrl-a (select all) is available
    for selecting text in xlog's text entries. For closing a log, you
    now need to use ctrl-shift-w. Thanks Len, WT6G for the idea.
  * The documentation has been moved to /usr/local/share/doc/xlog. The
    glabels template has moved to /usr/local/share/doc/xlog/glabels.
  * Country maps have been added. Use Options->Country map to display
  * A button next to the callsign entry has been added. When clicked it
    will lookup the callsign with your internet browser on your
    preferred server. The settings for this server is on the Info page
    of the preferences dialog and takes the form
    http://www.qrz.com/<call>, where <call> will be replaced with the
    callsign. Suggested by Rob, KL7NA and Boris, 4Z5ST.
  * It is no longer possible to view scoring for an award when the
    scoring window is not active.
  * A new macro has been added to the keyer. '~' stands for the last
    exchange message received. It can be used in contests where you
    forward the last exchange. The initial message can be set in page 2
    if the preferences dialog. For more information read the manual.
    Thanks Jon, LA4RT for the initial patch.
