How do you handle the poor performance of LC 7?

Thanks for the confirmation Peter

To get through the iOS App Store I need a commercial version of LiveCode, so
can you give us a rough date of when a commercial version of v8 will be
released? I'm not after a definite date but something I can use to help me

If an approximate release date is either unknown or too far in the future to
be contemplated then can you assure us that we could develop in v8 and - as
long as no widgets etc were used - build standalones with v7?

Kind regards
