Hello Everyone,

ListMagic maintenance release 1.1.3 is now available and can be downloaded

English:	http://www.sosmartsoftware.com/?r=revolution&l=en

This release includes:

- A new Check for updates button on the Action tab. On launch, ListMagic
checks for a later version of itself. If found, it turns the Check for
updates button red. Clicking on this button informs you of what is included
in the update and allows you to directly download the newest version without
having to navigate to websites. It is also a visual indicator that you may
have accidentally opened an older version of ListMagic.

- More completely updates pre-existing ListMagic widgets in your stacks,
including multilingual menus and blocks of code previously skipped, if they
already existed, but which could have been updated when you upgrade to a
newer version of ListMagic.

- Prevents you from installing a new widget into a stack with older
pre-existing widgets without first running Modify to update the pre-existing
widgets and ListMagic library of the stack to the newest version.

- Completely deletes ListMagic widgets, custom properties and optionally the
ListMagic library and start using statements when the last ListMagic widget
is deleted from your project stack. Only boilerplate message handlers in the
card script remain, in case you modified these and wish to retain the code.
As these are no longer triggered, you can leave them or delete them at your

NOTE: All you have to do to delete a widget from your stack is select either
the list or header portion of the widget with the pointer tool and hit the
delete key. That's all! That widget is then totally deleted from the card.
If it is the last widget in any card of any substack, or the main stack of
your project, you will now be prompted if you wish to delete the ListMagic
library also. If you do, there is nothing left except the previously
mentioned boilerplate message handlers.

- Properly manages which ListMagic library is in use when you have both
ListMagic and Project stacks that have a ListMagic library open and are
switching between the two.

- Corrects German menus (again) and removes an inadvertently left breakpoint
in version 1.1.2.

All ListMagic users, both registered and trial, are encouraged to upgrade to
this 1.1.3 maintenance release.
