- The Emission Unit Operating Scenario Details screens for fuel combustion operating scenarios now allows values up to four decimal places in the "Amount of Sulfur in Fuel (%)" fields, in order to accommodate the sulfur content of ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel. This includes the "Primary Fuel Information Table" window, "Fuel Blends" window, and "Secondary Fuel Information Table" window of this Details screen.
- The Equipment Details screen for Landfills (Municipal Solid Waste Landfill window) now indicates a unit of "million megagrams" for Total Design Capacity, in order to allow realistic values for this entry.

- Win32/Win NT/Win 98 Compatibility - RADIUS
will be converted from a 16-bit application to a 32-bit.
It will be compatible with Windows NT and 98 operating
systems. The conversion to 32-bit will provide a more
stable RADIUS platform while greatly increasing the
speed of the application.
- Emission Statement to Permit Application
Data Transfer - Users who prepare emission statements
will be able to transfer any common information to permit
- Support for General Permits - Users will
be able to apply for General Permits via RADIUS.

similar to a spreadsheet.

interface will be added to allow users to select individual
or series of pages to print.
- Export File Renaming - Users will be able
to name the export file prior to saving. This will allow
the user multiple exports on the same day without changing
the name via a separate windows interface.
- Double validation of PIN numbers - RADIUS
will include a feature which will require the user to
key in the PIN number twice before submitting applications.
This will reduce keystroke errors when entering PIN
numbers which are masked from the screen.
- Added a "Re-number NJID" button
on all the inventory screens. This button will allow
you to change the NJID number to any unused number without
deleting any previously entered data.

new columns to number the total requirement line items
as well as the number of requirement line items 'included'
in the compliance plan.
- Corrects the text when a user selects "None"
for the monitoring method, averaging period, and frequency

attachment exists before attempting to move it to the
appropriate directory. This will ensure that all attachments
(except the ones that were not there when the export
file was created) would be imported.
- Access error 39 occurring at the very end
of the administrative check while the bottom of the
screen indicates that RADIUS is counting the errors
and warnings has been corrected.
- System error 39 occurring while the administrative
check is checking the PTE during the
