That's a load of rubbish, because when I did I got a:

"A value must be set for the 'Desktop OS' field." message

when there is NO 'Desktop OS' field.


Here are the contents of my attempted submission:

"It would be marvellous if Livecode was not restricted to JPG, PNG, BMP 
and a few other fairly obscure and outdated image formats (PBM anyone?) 
and could import and export a much larger range of image formats. As 
their are a large number of opne source codecs for image formats 
available this should not involve RunRev having to pay money to build 
them into Livecode.

How about webP and VP8 for a start?"
