Version v01.81 is up on BinTray and on its way to the Google Play Store. It adds only a little to last week's v01.80.01 test build. Thanks to everyone who tested that build so that this release would be better.

You can download the new version by clicking this link.
There are realease notes here to tell you what's new, and for the whole story view or download the manual, De Re BASIC!.

Here are the highlights, most copied from the v01.80.01 post:
  • Fixed the new, v01.80 version of the ISR variable namespace bug. See this thread and GitHub Issue #78.
  • BASIC! has a splash screen! Thanks, Nicolas and Antonis. See here and here, and GitHub Issue #40.
  • New commands: HTML.ORIENTATION (see here and here), and the RINGER settings (here).
  • New functions INT$() and USING$(). The latter can also be aliased FORMAT_USING$(). See this thread and GitHub Issue #156.
  • Orientation parameter on HTML.OPEN to go with the HTML.ORIENTATION command.
  • GR_Collision() now detects text objects. See GitHub Issue #50.
  • Volume keys now work on audio playing while in Graphics mode.
  • The DEVICE command now has a way to return the default language and locale of your device. See GitHub Issue #90.
  • Socket.Client.Connect has a "wait" parameter now, just like Socket.Server.Connect. Look at the sample program f31_socket_time.bas to see it in action.
  • Both f31_socket_time.bas and f32_tcp_ip_sockets.bas have new servers to connect to. Both server addresses work, for now.
  • Luca and humpty fixed some pre-processor bugs affecting special operators. See here and GitHub Issue #147.
As always, the full source directory (Eclipse project), and the MS Word version of the manual are available on GitHub.

- Marc

I have added another line to the release notes: the volume keys now change the sound level on audio playing while you are in graphics mode.
I'm sorry, Nicolas, I did not mean to leave out your change!

To clarify, there are two differences between the test build and the release build (other than version numbers and such):
  • The new version of the DEVICE command with language, local, and phone number
  • The new "wait" parameter on Socket.Client.Connect.

And in case you didn't see Alberto's bug report: he discovered that SMS.Rcv.Next is broken in v01.81, so there will be a v01.82 coming along Real Soon Now. It was broken in v01.80.01, too.
