Patent Grabber 5.9.4 is now available

The European Patent Office's recent changes to their "Open Patent Services" server system broke a number of Patent Grabber functions. Version 5.9.4 is a patch to hold users over until I complete all of the necessary modifications.

Family-izer(TM) both original and Solo are operating normally again

I have fixed the problems with Family-izer and Family-izer Solo so that they are both working again. The EPO systems upon which they are dependent were modified recently, so I had to make changes to compensate.

My work to get all of Patent Grabber's features functioning again is progressing.

EPO changes things again!

EPO changes have disabled Patent Grabbeer's INPADOC Legal Status feature on the downloading screen, as well as the Sortable List and Abstract Report on the search screen. The downloading of patent documents is not affected.

Also disabled are my two free online services: Family-izer and Family-izer Solo.

Fixes will be provided ASAP.
