Navigator 5.1 alpha 1 is available

I updated the 5.1 alpha of Navigator. You can download Navigator 5 here. The full documentation is here, and there is a description in detail of how conversion to script-only stack behaviors works here.

New features:

-- Use your own naming convention for script-only stack files. Whatever you can do in a line of LC script, you can use to name your stacks.
-- A "Restore from Behaviors" command. This will do unhelpful things (duplicate scripts) for complex, chained behaviors, but I've used it about half a dozen times with Navigator to restore and re-export Navigator's code using the new naming feature.
-- The Custom Properties menu now supports deleting properties and property sets.
-- The Property Editor now supports custom properties.
-- The Property Editor now highlights values that aren't the same for all the controls selected.
-- The Property Editor now has a popup menu that displays each of the values for the property for the selected controls -- these two make finding and syncing discrepancies easy.
-- The contextual menu for stacks now supports updating all script-only stacks from disk, making it unnecessary to quit and restart LiveCode after changing branches in source control.
-- The Scripts menu now supports sending to private commands and functions for testing.
