2007-10-11: Version 3.5.9.0 of the calculator software released. Introduced temporary local fonts (e.g. for LCD-like text effects) and multiple links with additional URLs (for customized calculators only).

2007-06-21: Version 3.5.8.0 of the calculator software released. Fixed an issue whereby multiple display configurations could end up with several displays having the same unit if units were changed during an exchange rate update. Also addressed an issue whereby a different base (e.g. binary, octal, hex) could be selected with a keyboard shortcut even on calculators without a base indicator. Updated installer and added manifests for Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.

2005-03-10: Version 3.5.6.0 of the calculator software released. Fixed an issue which affected the dragging and use of a calculator window positioned to the top or left of the primary display on multiple-display systems.

Currency-enabled versions feature better support for past and future EMU currencies (e.g. new option when Reset Euro is selected).

2001-09-12: Version 3.2 of the calculator software released, featuring new installer, additional dual display and other enhanced skins. You can now press F5 to quickly change skin.

2001-09-05: Currency-enabled versions of the calculator software set to use a new host (rates.cloanto.com) for exchange rate data provided by Cloanto in consideration of increasing load related to currency data.

2001-08-01: Began beta testing version 3.2 of the calculator software, featuring a dual display and integration with Calculator Builder technology to allow for even more sophisticated customization.

2001-03-21: Version 3.1 of the calculator software released. New Round function (shown in new Euro Shop skin), new documentation format, and revised German user interface texts. In currency-enabled versions by default unusual currency fluctuations now generate a warning rather than an error event.

2001-01-01: Version 3.0 of the calculator software released. In the currency-enabled versions the Greek drachma was added as a built-in EMU currency, with constant exchange rate as specified by the European Central Bank.

2000-10-30: Minor revision of the calculator software released. Added keyboard shortcuts for Copy and Paste.

2000-04-21: Version 2.2 of the calculator software released. Fixed a bug in the Options... property sheet which could cause a minor memory leak upon program exit.

1999-09-02: Version 2.1 of the calculator software released.

1999-06-22: Registered SkinCalc.com.

1999-04-10: Version 2.0 of the calculator software released.

1999-01-10: Version 1.0 of the calculator software released (distributed as Euro Calculator). Other than an HP calculator emulator supporting skins which we know of, we believe this to be the first skinnable calculator. Our first contacts with Skinz.org (our reference site for 1998-1999) pre-dated the release of any other calculator on that site.
