This REQUIRES the first Fusion (alpha) patch mentioned in a post from a month or two ago -- please search for that thread. If you already have 0.6a/0.6b/0.6c/0.6d there's nothing else you need.
- Resets expiration.
- Adds a "rotation" factor in the Map > Generate to better match up satellite underlays (negative values and decimal fractions are allowed). This value, if nonzero, will cause the map to rotate around the center of the workchart by the specified degree angle.
- Adds Map > "Import Map from URL" so you can import a satellite image from the Internet. The status window won't (yet) tell you it's downloading so just be patient and the map will appear.
