Hi Dave,

You're correct -- LiveCode 8 is indeed LiveCode 7 with widgets and a 
revamped IDE.

I do hope that you can make the switch to using LiveCode 8.  LCB and 
widgets are especially fun to play with, and in particular widgets make 
it much easier to teach and demonstrate how good LiveCode is for rapid 
app development.  It feels much more fun and productive to design apps 
when you don't have to spend half an hour fiddling individual graphics 
objects into place to create your user interface!
