[ANN] Release 8.1.7 RC-1

Excited by many things.
I wonder if snapshot, which was failing on desktop (Mac and Linux at least)
has been sorted out?
Majorly %^&*($# by this:
The Linux version of LiveCode is STILL NOT loading a dictionary.
[ I see that that problem has been "solved" in LC 9 dp 8 by simply
inactivating the Dictionary button on Linux. ]
So, as I stated before:
"always something new to fiddle around with", and CAREFULLY avoided writing:
somethings never seem to get completely sorted out,
but, as you "rose to the bait" I have "baited my hook".
Whatever my sour responses, LiveCode still "rocks the socks" off all
