- Options to not send UV and SolarRad to Weather Underground and PWS Weather (see Internet settings)
- Clock now has 12-hour display option (click on it)

Note: The default for sending UV and Solar radiation to WU and PWS Weather is 'NO'. You will therefore need to change the setting if you have the relevant sensors and you want to continue sending the data.
