I have no idea why but my upgrade to 4.6 didn't have a cost attached to it, I guess I somehow paid for it in the past.

I was happy to see a couple of things in the new release.  Substacks within a main stack are now listed alphabetically, making it much easier to find them in large applications.  And after the recent posts I made about not liking the way LC summarily enforced About and Preferences on Mac, there is now a way to control whether those menu items are created or not.

But I'm left with this vague feeling that it's hard to think of this as a major release for desktop developers.  It includes a lot of new features for people who are developing mobile apps but for those of us who are concentrating on desktop right now, there really isn't much to get excited about.  RunRev list 13 new features and, for me personally, I don't think there's one that is of much use in any of my current projects.  

II'm sure there are users out there who welcome some of the new desktop features but if I had to pay for this release, I would not have upgraded.
