Bsystems has announced a new version of its time recording program for Windows Mobile Pocket PC, including a new XML based storage. According to some information posted on the developer's website, this helps reducing the amount of memory needed to run the application, since the SQL Server CE is no longer needed. Also the XML file format is native to .Net, making it easier for future developments.
Apart from the reduced install size from not having SQL Server CE installed (which can take up 2 Mb of precious memory), this new version contains significant improvements upon previous versions:
437 kb Install Footprint on Windows Mobile Pocket PC 2003 devices
New week summary
Four time entry methods for the ultimate in flexibility
Enhanced granular control of interface

The updated website contains discussion forums for support and other issues, plus a Quick Start Guide.
