Sean -

This thread began with a concern over how Linux compatibility is 
described in the Release Notes.

I proposed a solution, but it didn't resonate. Perhaps a different 
approach may work:

The audience for the Release Notes is developers, and what developers 
need to know is where LiveCode the application can be deployed.

Any consideration about specific distros the company provides technical 
support for is arguably inappropriate in Release Notes altogether. 
First, technical support obligations are better described in the license 
offer. And second,they don't apply at all with Community Edition where 
the company has no technical support obligations.


Since what we want to know is on which Linux distros LiveCode is known 
to run well on, would replacing "support" with "runs on" suffice?

Of course we may touch up a few other sentence so it flows nicely, but 
do I understand correctly that the concern is to know where LC runs?

If this suggestion doesn't cover what you're looking for, what would you 
prefer to see there?
