Version 2.38 (17jun2016)

GENERAL
- 5490 graphics (= +111 since previous version).
- Errors corrected:
   Copies of Version 2.37 shipped before 01sep2015 had a corrupted file which caused TropCrop to freeze on starting Slide Show in CropPix. (The debugged file (cpslides.var) to replace it can be retrieved from the Service Page).
   As the term 'cultivar group' as a taxon has been officially replaced by the term 'Group' (since the publication in 2004 of the 7th edition of the ICNCP), this rule has now been adhered to throughout TropCrop.
