- Start Timer Adjusting! Long press the timer digits to get a dialog to increment or decrement the timer by one minute. Even while running. Good way to recover easily from a missed signal!

- Fix: A case where the app would stop responding.
- Fix: 'AutoFinish' would not stop the clock if you were far from the middle of the finish line. Now stops when you cross anywhere on the line.
