    I have given this beta status for its first few days of public release just to make sure that there are no little buggies remaining. All going well, I'll give the full 'release quality' status on Friday evening, UK time.

    Thanks for all the suggestions for this and future versions. Keep 'em coming, in the correct forum, of course.

    Congratulations, John, and thanks for all your work!

    Just one question - I don't want to redo all the desiging I already did, so is the 1.1.1 upgradeable to the new version flawlessly, or is there anything we should know?

    Thanks,

    Bira

        I think that we have resolved the issues with 1.1.2 that have been bought up in the forums. If anyone else has further problems, please go ahead and post in the relavent forum.

        If all goes well, I will announce version 1.1.2 as a proper stable release in the next few days.
