Hi All,

I’m going to be doing some short introductions to some of our teachers about 
LiveCode. I was reviewing the support resources, specifically the Beginners 
Guide. The info seems to need a bit of an update. Is there another link with a 
more current Beginners Guide?


To use LiveCode you will need:

1024×768 or larger monitor
True color display (16-bit or 32-bit depth)
At least 256Mb of memory
At least 150Mb of disk space (is this still accurate?)
LiveCode supports the following versions of Windows:

Windows 2000 SP4
Windows XP SP2 and above
Windows Server 2003
Windows Vista SP1 and above (both 32-bit and 64-bit)
Windows 7 (both 32-bit and 64-bit)
Windows Server 2008
Windows 8 and 8.1 Desktop
Additionally, QuickTime 7 or later is required for most multimedia features.

Mac OS X

The minimal requirements for LiveCode to run on Linux are:

32-bit installation, or a 64-bit linux distribution that has a 32-bit 
compatibility layer
2.4.x or later kernel
glibc 2.3.2 or later X11R5 capable Xserver running locally on a 24-bit display
compositing window manager (optional – required for alpha-blended window shapes)
gtk/gdk/glib (optional – required for native theme support)

Thank  you!
