LiveCode 6.1.1 Released

Post by LCNeil » Wed Sep 11, 2013 2:55 pm

Dear All,

We are very pleased to announce the release of LiveCode 6.1.1. This is the first release from our new maintenance cycle.

This release contains 57 bug fixes, some of which improve the stability of the IDE making for a much nicer coding experience. The 6.0 release also had a few sporadic instabilities with images which we believe have now been resolved.

We would recommend all community and commercial users update to 6.1.1.

Thank you to all those in the community who took time to work with our quality team to reproduce issues and submit bug reports. Your support is invaluable.

Did someone forget about server?

The links on both the community page and the licensed link on my store page for commercial all go to 6.1.0 for Windows Server.

I also see that there is an RC for 6.1.2 server in downloads.livecode.com/livecode/server/ - any word on what's changed/fixed? I don't think I have seen any announcement about a 6.1.2 anything...

edit - nevermind, found release notes

Hello,

I didn't visit RunRev for a very long time. I am so excited to learn that LiveCode becomes an open source software.

I have no enough incentive to upgrade from RR to LiveCode since a few years ago. Therefore I am still using RR4.0.0. I am now thinking to use (or upgrade) the latest version of LiveCode. I have a question:

Is LiveCode same as RR?

Best regards

Alex

Nice to meet all of you.

Hi Alex,

LiveCode is the same as Runtime Revolution, as Shaosean write. If by "upgrade" you mean to buy a new commercial license, keep in mind that your commercial license will be valid for only 1 year. When the license expires, you can't use the commercial version anymore.

Kind regards,

Just to be clear, I think you can continue to use the version you purchased. You just don't get any more free updates after a year.

Hi Jacque,

It used to be like that, but not any more.

Everyone can use LiveCode Community Edition forever at no cost - and you even get the source code to the engine. You only need to purchase a commercial license to deploy proprietary works.

The first item on this page outlines which deployment scenarios can be satisfied by each type of LiveCode license:

Hi,

If by "upgrade" Alex means to buy a commercial license, I hope he is aware that this license can be used for one year only. Perhaps we should wait until Alex tells us what he plans to do and then we can give him all the relevant info he needs.

Kind regards,

Mark
