Are you using the Starter Kit? Because of the script limits, Starter 
Kit users won't be able to update libUrl with the updater stack. 
Unfortunately, this isn't documented and no message is given when the 
update doesn't work. My fault and my apologies.

However, my own testing shows that when trying to update the Starter 
Kit, the version number gets changed, but the script doesn't (i.e 
libUrlVersion() return 1.0.7b2). Again, my aplogies for any 
confusion. I'll try to make available a more reliable updater soon.

Niklas, if you are using a licensed version, let me know off list, 
and I'll take a look at what might be happening.

If you are new to the concepts of Revolution: you may want to start with
a commercial book about Hypercard, and do just the official tutorials from
Revolution. The third-party books about Revolution do not yet exist. I'm
quite sure you can use most HC books alongside the RR software. It would
even help to get the HC reference and HC script reference manuals, mine
are of 1993 and older. As a RR user, I find the online docs better than
the PDF's. The PDF is good for searching and getting an overview.
