PCT searching broken in Patent Grabber

The folks at WIPO made some changes to their searching system that broke Patent Grabber's PCT search function. I have identified a fix and will release a new version shortly. Many thanks to Patent Grabber user Ramiro for reporting the problem!

Patent Grabber 5.9.5 is now available

Patent Grabber 5.9.5 is now available for download from the Patent Tools page of the Blazing Dawn Software web site. All users must upgrade to this version.

Version 5.9.5 provides a more permanent fix for the changes made by the European Patent Office to its Open Patent Services servers. Patent Grabber uses Open Patent Services for a number of its functions.
