Bug Fixes:

Corrected fuse table entries on 'F873,F874 devices to display
proper name/value combination.

Corrected the "Blank Check" menu selection. This selection will now
perform a blank check instead of ignoring the request.

Fixed false error message "ID locations not blank" when
Blank-checking a new device that uses parity.

Eliminated false "Programmer not Found" messages.


When loading a HEX file that does not include the device record,
Ver. 1.1 will not reset the device type to a PIC12C508. If the
Device record is not reconized, the currently selected device will
remain the same.

Changed port testing behavior to display progress to the user.

Modified firmware for backwards compatibility with older software.
