I’m pleased to announce that LiveCode 5 has just been released.  Our  
servers have been updated with the new product and it is available for  
download from your accounts, if you have a valid 5.0 license. To log

If you don't have an up to date 5.0 license, here's why you might want  
to get one:

• Fastest Ever App Performance
     10X faster rendering performance than previous versions means  
LiveCode built apps are faster and better than ever. Applications  
already written in LiveCode can take advantage of the hardware  
acceleration without rewriting your code.
• High-Performance Graphics Engine
     Make great games or smoother, slicker apps than ever before with  
LiveCode 5.0. LiveCode now utilizes graphics hardware acceleration and  
OpenGL, animated sprites, textures and scrolling backgrounds,  
collision detection, vector graphics in popular formats, drop shadows,  
transition effects, multi-channel audio and video to make your apps  
stand out from the crowd.
• Support for iOS 5
     Up to the minute app development with support for iOS 5.
