I’ve been scratching my head of late with Livecode version numbers. They don’t seem to follow any rhyme or reason any longer. I’m sure they do to someone but I’m not quite sure what’s going on.

Why are we testing a new feature in a RELEASE CANDIDATE version #2? Why are significant features being added at all to the 8.x branch? What standard (if any) do Livecode version numbers follow?

So, here’s to looking forward to 8.2.0dp1 (which will be known as 8.1.6rc3 in the real world :-)
