LiveCode Community Edition Ships

It is my great pleasure to let you all know that we have now shipped LiveCode 6.0, Community Edition. You can read about it and download from here:

This is the very first "as is" shipping edition of LiveCode Open Source. We apologise for the late night shipping, this was due to some last minute build issues.

      Sitting at a Windows box but would like to download the OSX version. Would be helpful to have individual links to the various platforms rather than relying upon the browser to detect the desired platform choice. (Minor issue)

      Awesome, already running on two machines :-)

      Fantastic! Downloaded LiveCode 6.0 and had a fully-functional app installed on my Android tablet within minutes.

      Then I got a GitHub account to check the open source version. I realise it will be Autumn (Fall) before the code is knocked into shape, but as soon as instructions for compiling LiveCode become available I will have a go. LiveCode will join wxWidgets as another C++ project from Edinburgh I can work on. (Obviously, it would be better if RunRev were based in Leith but one can't have everything).

      App Academy eBook - "Estimated delivery: May 2013"

      Any idea when we will be receiving the App Academy Ebook? I pledged for this level, but i haven't seen the ebook yet...

      Downloading the software went flawless. I'm going to test it tonight...

      When I follow the Community Edition link it takes me to my RunRev store account but with no apparent link to the Community Edition download. Puzzled.
