Release 6.7.4 Stable / 7.0.4 Stable

Actually, I am beginning to wonder what "stable' might mean at the best 
of times.

For the last few weeks I have been trying to read data on an external 
"turtle" connected to
a Windows 7 box via a USB cable with No joy at all.

Yesterday I stumbled across a remark that something to do with 
communication with
serial ports had been broken post LiveCode 4.0.

I installed LiveCode 4.0 on my Windows 7 box and things began working; 
which they did not
with LiveCode 7.0.

So, I will assume that EVERY SINGLE RELEASE of LiveCode after 4.0 is 
"Beta", "Bugged" or whatever,
as a broken capability has never been fixed.


I have always thought that the idea of releasing new versions of 
software was to improve on earlier versions.

And by "improving" I don't mean ignoring the fact that while you have 
improved your thing in one area you have
broken something else.

Guess I must be wrong.
