8.16rc1 release notes - wow!

2017-07-11 Thread james--- via use-livecode
I was really blown away by the changes and bug fixes listed in the 8.16rc1 release notes. Then I looked a bit closer and thought many seemed familiar. It seems the script to compile the release notes has either gotten greedy or something else has changed as it has grabbed quite a few additions

Master M in script editor of lc8.15

Has anyone noticed the "Master M" (where the M is actually a blue tiled M) in the top area of the script editor in LC8.15? I have checked both the commercial and business editions and both show it. It is not present in LC8.14 or lower. It doesn't do anything, just sits there. Perhaps an upcoming

I must admit it did turn out better than I was expecting. The prerecording of the demos/lessons/walk throughs is an excellent idea. Now if it is only taken to the next step. 1. Have a script. 2. Use the script 3. Use a proper microphone (headset one will do) 4. Edit the thing to remove superfluous
