Just a quick update that Juan Carlos Rodriguez-del-Pino and his team have released a new (their 3rd) update to the VPL [link to the announcement].  A new feature adds a running program example as an activity.

According to the announcement it’s recommended that all users of 1.x upgrade to this new version 1.3.
