What troubles me is how hearsay like that gets started, and then how it 
grows.

Zip compression is available in all LiveCode editions, and as Kevin's 
said they're not going to be taking features out of editions they're 
currently available in.

PDF generation is also available in all LiveCode editions.

PDF on-screen rendering is not available in any LiveCode edition, and I 
don't recall seeing it on either the Kickstarter stretch goals or either 
of the two emails this quarter about new proprietary-only features.

Did I miss something?

There are many great things about communities, but one drawback is that 
it takes a community to play the game of "Telephone" :)
