- I want to thank all the users of Resistor Colour Code Solver who've given me invaluable comments and feedback for improving the program.
- Special thanks to: Tony, Jeff Owen, Alec Soroudi (who provided the idea for major and minor changes seen in v1.1 and further helped me in its testing).
- Special thanks to Walter Leonardo Iñiguez. Credit for v1.2 of the program goes to him for his generous suggestions for improvements in the program. The suggestion to translate Resistor Colour Code Solver to Spanish came from him which helped me made a generic version of the program that can now be translated to other similar languages quite easily without requiring modification in the program. Furthermore, credit to translation in Spanish language goes to him. He further helped me in its implementation and testing.
- Thanks to Zoe and Natasha Venter for reporting bugs in v1.2 of the program.
- Special thanks to Jorge Mendes. Credit for v1.3 goes to him. He volunteered for this translation and helped me translate the program and provided exhaustive testing for the same. In that, he also helped me fixing some bugs. I must appreciate his way of going into detailed analysis of the program to provide a perfect result. Thanks very much.
- One more special thanks, to Robics. He translated the program to support Italian language almost all by himself and thereby done much of my work. He also tested it. His support thus entitles him for credit of v1.3.1 of this program.
