*Getting this release*
To upgrade to this release please select "check for updates" from the help
menu in LiveCode or download the installers directly at:
http://downloads.livecode.com/livecode/

*Known issues*
There is still a performance drop in the 6.6.x series compared to the 6.5.x
series due to the new support for high resolution displays. Work is
currently ongoing to resolve this in the 6.7 release.

*LiveCode 6.6.3*
We will shortly be releasing an RC1 of LiveCode 6.6.3 which contains 12
fixes that were deemed not suitable for the latter stages of the 6.6.2
cycle.

Warm regards,

The LiveCode team.
