Hello everyone,

Yes, it finally mades its way between all the beta ! We are very proud to annonce PureBasic 5.10 which brings a lot of new features. It brings enhancements in every domains, including the compiler, libs, 3D and the IDE ! Thanks to Polo, we now have a built-in form designer, which proves to be very valuable. We have reviewed about 3700 topics in 'Features and wish list' forum, and 763 are now implemented, which is around 20% ! It's not bad considering than all the posts are not unique and/or suitable for PB. Yes, we listen to you, even if we don't comunicate much about it.

Grab it while it's hot ! I would like to do a special thanks to Andre and Mesa for the awesome work on the German and French documentation. And indeed Jassing who spell-checked the english doc. It's a behind the scene work, but it is indeed very important for PureBasic.

Have fun on this Valentine Day !

After only 6 minutes, it's still pretty hot, I think. :-)
Awesome! Many thanks to the team!

Great news!
Unfortunately didn't have much time to test because of vacation but I'm very excited viewing this huge changelog!
Doesn't only look like a "feature and wishlist" upgrade, but like extending and expanding many of the "classic" functions. :shock:
Thank you Fred, Freak, Polo, Andre - whole team - for all your awesome work!
