Hi Matthias,

Whether or not I am a list member is not important. Whenever I need the 
latest version of LC, I follow the link to the downloads and download 
whatever appears to be the latest version.

I'm not going to check the list for all announcements, while I just want 
to help out a new potential LiveCode user by quickly installing the 
latest version for him or her. I'll just grab the latest version from 
the server and that's it. If this version looks official but appears to 
be unstable, it will put off this potential new user and RunRev will 
have one potential customer less.

Best regards,
