You might want to go to grc.com and find the new version of Gravity that
Steve Gibson compiled. It fixes a couple of issues (including a crashing
bug in base64 or MIME or something).
The fix wasn't added to the source because no one from the project is
active and haven't reply to Steve about adding the fixes in.
(The other fix, iirc, had to do with a 2020 embedded bug that assumed any
two digit year <20 was in 2000 and =>20 was in 1900.)
(I don't use Gravity, never have, but I was present during the
discussions about fixing it).

locations in the article display pane, as opposed to chronologically

3.0.10 is a very welcome release, and it's nice to see that there is
