Re: LB Booster version 2.80 released

I was initially of the opinion that the 'opening the same RANDOM file twice' issue was insufficiently important to warrant a special release. However, as it could result in data loss, and since the fix is trivial, I have decided to update LBB to v2.82; it can be downloaded from the usual place:
In this version, if you open the same file FOR RANDOM twice, or more times, (on different handles) all the opens will succeed, but only the first will open the file for update. The second and subsequent OPENs will open the file for input (read-only); attempting to PUT a record will result in an 'Access denied' error.
As a bonus feature, version 2.82 has the enhanced debugger with the heap and stack usage reported. This should be useful in diagnosing memory leaks.

It had slipped my mind, but executables created by LBB 2.82 also have a Windows 10 compatibility manifest (v2.80 EXEs only claim compatibility up to Windows 8.1). I am - like everybody else - assuming that Microsoft won't change the GUID when Windows 10 is officially released.
Of course there's a risk in claiming compatibility with an OS that doesn't yet formally exist, but development tools like LBB need to be 'ahead of the curve' so that people can test that their own executables work properly on the next version of Windows.
