- Additional food items that have been requested by users have been included.
- Data handling and the tracking database have been improved to allow the saving and recall of complete ration data.

NutVal 4.0 is now available for download from the downloads page.
The release of the new version has been a long time coming (!) but we hope you will find the new functions and extended databases useful in your food assistance work.
A big thank you to all the people who contributed to the development of this version by providing suggestions for improvements and/or beta testing earlier test versions. If you could please delete any test versions you may still have to avoid them escaping into the wild that would be great! Thanks.
