xx LB Booster version 3.08 released
« Thread started on: Jun 3rd, 2017, 8:06pm »

I am pleased to announce the release of LB Booster version 3.08. It may be downloaded from here:

http://lbbooster.com/LBB.exe (IDE/compiler)
http://lbbooster.com/LBBRUN.exe (Run Time Engine)

This release incorporates the following changes:
  1. The FILES statement has been extended to create an extra column (4) in the array, containing the files' date/time in a sortable format. That is, the date is formatted as YMD and no timezone offset or daylight-savings adjustment is applied.

  2. The GUI LOCATE command can now be used with the width and height omitted. In this case the control is moved but not resized.

  3. The MENU and POPUPMENU statements will now accept a '\t' (signifying 'tab') within the string, allowing menu items to be created with a standard right-justified keyboard shortcut. For example "New\tCtrl+N".

  4. The DISCARD command is now ignored by LBB (see the recent thread). This should improve compatibility with LB 4, on balance. In the unlikely event of a program being adversely affected by this change, replacing discard with redraw will probably restore correct operation.

  5. Fixed a bug causing the FILES statement to misbehave if the date format for the locale has a trailing dot (for example Serbian and Croatian).

  6. Fixed a bug accidentally introduced in version 3.06 (sorry).
Please note that, unavoidably, updating LBB.exe will mean that its 'reputation' is reset and you may receive security warnings when you download it. This should resolve itself eventually when the new version has been downloaded a sufficient number of times for its safety to be established.

Richard

Thank you for the update to LBB. I notice that on the other site they are updating LB, but still not addressing the known bugs.

Indeed. Sadly this is par for the course.

I'm just about to start a new project and now I get to do it with a freshly updated LBBooster! Thanks so much for the extension to the FILES statement, I actually created a function years ago to do this very thing for the very same reason.

I still use a homemade recursive FILES-type function that stores additional 'path\to' information in column 4. As I was correcting it I thought to ask... any chance of extending FILES to include recursive files and directories?
