Most of what I do is supporting other LiveCode programmers. Is some way I can use your libraries in that? That is, can I pass on a library that uses your library? Maybe if the customer also has contributed to this? I deliver a demo stack for every library I deliver and customers expect to be able to immediately run that. I don't want to have to say they have to go through some jumping through hoops to check out the library.
This also applies to teams. It would be convenient if teams can somehow use the libraries.
Maybe I'm not understanding the constraints on the downloads.

Fortunately, I also received positive feedback from people who understood that I can't give everything away if making it costs me money. Still, the noise caused by people who believed they can claim a right to free software pretty much spoiled the fun for me and I decided I had to do something about this.

I also needed a way to lock out those who believe to have a right to demand free stuff. The solution I have come up with is paid access to sheltered downloads. This system allows me to provide better free software and helps me to have more fun creating software for the LiveCode community. The fun part is hugely important to me.
> Most LiveCode software available from Economy-x-Talk, such as libraries and plugins, is still free. However, to obtain access to the free downloads, you are required to make a small financial contribution. You can decide by yourself how much you would like to contribute. I'd be happy to consider your contribution a token of mere appreciation. It is not meant as a fee for license or support. Once you have made your contribution, an account is created for you and you get access to the downloads.
> An overview of all currently available downloads is available at http://qery.us/zr with the latest addition being the extSetBadgeNumber external for iOS. This external allows you to add a red circle with a white number (also called a badge) to the icon of your application in the iPhone home screen. The external is currently being tested but seems to work fine so far. Go to http://qery.us/zs to create an account and download the external.
