Hi Lester,

> I have a large raster file (~65 Mb) which will load and run fine in 1.1.1 and 1.2, but with 1.3 it will crash the program. Is there an upper limit on raster sizes that can be used?

Not that I am aware of - but haven't tried.

> Secondly, the GPML format has changed to a format that can no longer be read in an editor (it is a binary file) as GPMLZ - has the whole thing been reorganized?

No - this is the compressed gpml format (like gzipping the gpml, hence gpmlz). You should still be able to write stuff as plain, uncompressed GPML.

When you are using the uncompressed version things should be as expected.
