EPS now runs in browser. (Netscape, MS Explorer, and others).

Changes in EPS 0.8.3

Support for DgpsIP. See dgps.wsrcc.com. Remember to set the interface to RTCM/NMEA (Or RTCM/NONE, 4800 baud if you dont need NMEA).

RXTX (version 1.3-9) now works with EPS. Not much work done in EPS. I think version 1.3.9 of RXTX is just better.

New UI for Commapi.

A few Bugfixes: A y2k problem. EPS now works again in new versions of Netscape.
