NS Basic/App Studio 1.2.0 released!

NS Basic/App Studio 1.2.0 is ready to download. You can download it from
the same URL as before.

We took some time to clean up a bunch of things internally that have
accumulated, streamlining our code in a number of places. These changes
should not affect how the product works, if we did them correctly.

There are a couple of important new features:
– Scrolling has been added to the HTMLview control. If this works well,
we will be extending it to other controls. Please give it a try!
– A new ReadFile statement has been added. It lets you read files
(like .htm, .txt, .csv and more) into variables in your program.

Here is what is new and fixed:

  1. Language: New ReadFile function. See Language Reference.
  2. Controls: HTMLview control now supports scrolling.
  3. Samples: ScrollingFile added.
  4. Samples: ReadFile added.
  5. Code Window: Case normalization improved.
  6. Code Window: Problem with cut and paste fixed.
  7. Deploy: Added more checking to file names.
  8. Deploy: Cache error messages can now be dismissed by tapping on them.
  9. Deploy: Move browser check to complexfunctions.js
  10. Docs: Handbook and Language Reference updated.
  11. IDE: Defaultformsize values remembered correctly.
  12. IDE: General code cleanup.
  13. IDE: Initial startup screens revised.
  14. IDE: Settings and Recent data now saved to registry.
  15. IDE: Tabs can now be pulled out into separate windows.
  16. Setup: Some apparently unneeded dll files removed.
