I just downloaded this to check it out ... have you been using it all?  
After downloading all the dependency jars[1], I realized that it only  
opens CEL files saved as version 4 (the binary one), while the files I  
have are version 3[2].

Do you (or anybody else) know if there is an easy way to convert  
between versions of CEL files?


[1] For anybody else who's trying to run this, you'll need to have in  
your classpath:
   * junit.jar: http://junit.org/
   * swing-layout.jar: https://swing-layout.dev.java.net/
