Plugin support - yes
Manana support - yes
NLS support (foreign languages) - yes
GTK2 support - yes

things back the way I like them and I'm strapped for time right now.
Or is there a known problem with this version of Jpilot or pilot-link?
Also, I notice that this version of Jpilot supports Memos for Palmos > 5.2. My
T3 runs 5.2.1 so is that compatible? When I set it to Memos, all my memos
disappeared from Jpilot. When I reset it back to Memo (Palmos < 5.2.1) the
Thanks for any help!
