I have tried to load the new DP 10 and my computer locks up with the following dialog: 
Livecode version 8.0.8-dp10
Extracting property information from dictionary.
This can take up to a minute.
This dialog box just stays and doesn't close.
I have to close LiveCode with the task manager.

Dear list members,

We are pleased to announce the release of LiveCode 8.0 DP 10.

Warning: this is not a stable release. Please ensure you back up your stacks before testing them.

*Release contents*

*Native string performance*
The performance of native string operations has been vastly improved, with many achieving similar speeds to those in 6.7.

*Linux install path*
The default Linux install path is now /opt/livecode/ and the executable naming has been made consistent.

*Union and intersect semantics*
The union and intersect semantics have been simplified and made consistent.

*26 bug fixes*

*Known Issues*
- Cef Browser (and therefore the dictionary and browser widget) does not currently work on 32-bit Linux
- HTML 5 standalones do not currently function when they contain extensions with dependencies.

*Getting the release*
You can get the release at

LiveCode 8 is still in development so we’d love to hear any feedback you have on it. There are a number of features that we’d like to implement but aren’t ready yet and the existing features are subject to change during development - we can’t guarantee that extensions written in Developer Previews will continue to work the same way in later versions.

Please report any bugs encountered on our Bugzilla at

We have a forum available for discussing LiveCode Builder at
