Indeed; and many Hurrahs and congratulations.

BUT, Please, get someone who knows a spot of English Grammar to write your
LiveCodeNotes-5_0_0.pdf:

"For 5.0.0, the graphics architecture has underwent a significant 
overhaul"  ;
'undergone' - Present Perfect always requires the present participle 
after an auxiliary.

:The reason for this change is to allow the engine to use better/faster 
methods of rendering
window content. In particular, it doesn't have to worry about using an 
approach that will
allow it to fetch back window content at any point."

"it doesn't have to worry"; more a case of bad anthropomorphism than 
grammar;
a computer, or a software engine, CANNOT worry.

"For both ordered and unordered list the marker is placed"

'An ordered', or, 'ordered or unordered lists the markers are placed'

Computers are coldly logical; the LiveCodeNotes are neither logical nor 
cold; nor are they grammatical; and that needs seeing to.
