Post by heatherlaine » Mon Jun 24, 2013 6:08 pm

Dear All,

We are please to announce the release of LiveCode 6.1 RC1. This beta release is for test purposes only. We would encourage all those who would like to contribute to the development of the product to download, install and test this release, reporting issues back to us via This is NOT a stable release.

The best way to test is to make copies of production projects and open them in the beta release. Work through your application testing all functionality looking for unwanted changes in behavior from previous editions of LiveCode. The second way to test is to try out any new functionality to ensure it works as you would expect it to. We would be grateful if any issues encountered would be logged at
