So, I would suppose.

But, if the current version of LiveCode that you are using serves your 
why get "all frothy" about version 8.0, which, rather like good wine, 
will take a while
to mature.

My Devawriter is still being maintained and tweaked with LC 4.5: "if it 
ain't broke,
don't fix it" : see, I did learn something useful when I was in the 
States as well as
acquire a Master's degree :)
