xx LB Booster version 1.85 released
« Thread started on: Sep 5th, 2012, 4:16pm »

I'm pleased to announce the release of LB Booster version 1.85; it may be downloaded from here: (IDE/compiler) (optional runtime engine)

This version adds a few new features and addresses a few issues which have been identified since the last release, including:

  1. A new command-line switch -C has been added, which compiles the specified program to an EXE. This would be useful in conjunction with an alternative IDE.

  2. If a Windows Constant isn't recognised an error is reported. The database of constants has been improved.

  3. Foreign language Unicode text (e.g. Arabic) can be entered directly into the editor using a suitable keyboard.

  4. A bug causing the IDE Find and Replace commands to crash occasionally when the string isn't found has been fixed.

  5. Labels can include the ampersand (&) character, e.g. [start&again] (an undocumented feature of Liberty BASIC).

  6. The NAME statement raises a (trappable) error if the file rename operation failed.

  7. Sprite backgrounds are perfectly transparent (in version 1.84 they had a transparency of 255/256!).

  8. BACKGROUND automatically zeroes the offsets (i.e. it does a BACKGROUNDXY 0 0).

  9. Negative values of UpperLeftX and UpperLeftY are treated the same as zero, i.e. the window is centered.
