Has anyone figured out what exactly what is new with this version? It seems to be slightly faster. I tested with my hbm converter, and compression of a 128x960 photo took only 30 seconds, whilist it took 1 min 3 sec before with 4.1....

I part of it just might be making a new version that is the "free" version. There might be nothing new over 4.1.

I could do some tests when i get time and comapre the exes, libs, ect.

well if Holtsoft does release the open source we could make it o you'd have to include the libs wouldn't that be great?

Not really, since it will break just about all of the existing code. A better approach would probably be to parse the source and let the compiler decide on which libraries are needed for compilation.

I think the new release supports complex multi-dimensional array resizing, someone confirm for me though.

in a code I wrote up quick it does seem to work!!!Very Happy

code below
code:
var test : flexible array 1 .. 0, 1 .. 0 of int
new test, 3, 3
test (3, 3) := 10
put test (3, 3)

that is not an accurate test. in my experience it only threw the complex blah blah error when i tried to resize the array after the second time. The above example works in 4.1. I dont have 4.1a yet so could someone test this for me?

code:
var test : flexible array 1 .. 0, 1 .. 0 of int
new test, 3, 3
test (3, 3) := 10
put test (3, 3)
new test, 3, 4

I'm not very sad, rather I'm quite happy that the first issue is taken care of Wink.
