What changes from v3.4 will make it worthwhile to upgrape to 3.99?

The main reason for the release was to support PICSTART Plus and PROM MATE
programming for the 16C505 and the new programming algorithm. The Project
Manager is settling down and with lots of customer feedback is improved greatly
over the premiere release in v3.40. We found that a large number of files
caused some problems, and that the Hi-Tech compiler sometimes could not handle
a long command line issued by MPLAB.
These items are listed in README.LAB as having been addressed in v3.99.06:
SSR 2676 - No error messages are generated if out-of-range data is
entered in the "Modify Program Memory" dialog.
SSR 3125 - After changing 17C4x development modes, microcontroller
mode shows external memory radio button selected and grayed out instead
of unselected and grayed out.
SSR 3156 - In the "Break Point Settings" window (Debug > Break
Settings...), attempting to add a symbol beginning with an underscore
gives an error message.
SSR 3554 - MPLAB doesn't detect nested include files. It should
report these files in the project window (Window>Project) and examine
these files for changes when determining if a rebuild is necessary.
SSR 3725 - Doing a processor reset causes the list file window to
close and reopen without preserving the current file position.
SSR 3738 - The list file window is not updated when a breakpoint is
SSR 3740 - MPLAB relinks unnecessarily when Project>Make Project is
SSR 3741 - In the project window (Window>Project), double-clicking
on an included file with an absolute path fails to open the file.
SSR 3756 - MPLAB loses nodes when reloading a project with more than
SSR 3757 - Opening the project window (Window>Project) causes a GPF
for projects with many nodes (20 or more).
SSR 3758 - When using HiTech compiler, command lines in excess of 128
characters are truncated -- we should take advantage of HiTech's command
SSR 3760 - Clicking the window close ("X" in upper right-hand corner)
button of the Edit Project dialog causes GPF if a node is currently selected.
SSR 3763 - After programming a part, PRO MATE status window loses
focus, requiring the use of a mouse to program consecutive parts.
SSR 3764 - If a list file is open that isn't the current project's
list file, MPLAB crashes when "Project>Build All" or
"Project>Make Project" is selected.
SSR 3786 - In the project window (Window>Project), dependency nodes
that have a "." character in their paths aren't marked as clickable,
and double-clicking them has no effect.
PICSTART Plus had these changes:
Fixed problem with a wrong op-code being generated when you edit
the calibration data on 12C67x devices.
Fixed issue with hex file not having correct byte count on the
record that contains the calibration data if the device only
had one calibration location.
Fixed issue with 16C554, 16C556, 16C558 parts: PICSTART Plus
will program bit 6 of the configuration word 0. But will ignore
in the checksum calculation to be compatible with original
release. This may affect the checksums generated for these
parts. (This change was also made in PRO MATE.)
Some fixes were also made to SIMICE.
Also if you look at the "Options>Development Mode" Dialog you'll get a hint of
what's coming next!
