Release Contents

In LiveCode 8.2.0 DP-1, we have introduced a new Edition: "Community Plus".
In short, Community Plus is just like Community, plus:

- Autocomplete feature in Script Editor
- Ability to use commercial addons from the LiveCode Extension store inside
your open source application
- Ability to submit free non-commercial apps to the iOS App Store.

For more details about Community Plus, see this page:

Moreover, in LiveCode 8.2.0 DP-1:

- Several bugs have been fixed.
- The Spinner Widget has been back ported
- The Script Editor now shows "live" errors as you type your code.

The full release notes are available from:


1. Indy and Business Editions include *autocomplete pro*, which extends
autocomplete with the following features:

- Completions generated dynamically by introspecting the object being
edited and its message path
- An Autocomplete Snippet Manager dialog is accessible from the script
editor menubar to manage a custom set of completions.

2. You might experience some problems with autocomplete and window layering
in some *unsupported* Linux distros (e.g. XUbuntu, Mint)

Please report any bugs encountered on our BugZilla at

Have fun!
The LiveCode Team
