I went to your blog and took a look at alt-button, very nice update.
One thing, In your blog under the title of the entry it states "by on June 16, 2011 in Livecode". 
Is that date off by a year intentionally or is there an error in the blog software date system?
Just curious I guess.

Nice update.

P.S. See you at the conference in NJ…
