    Release Notes: This version fixes an unpleasant typo that caused 0.3.1 to crash if you tried to turn autosave on (as the author found, to his cost). This version has a crash handler that will try to let you save your document if/when any other bugs show up. Users are strongly encouraged to upgrade.
