Is the copyright year in the License document a separate change to the year in the About form?

Thanks for asking this.
The License and About year should have been changed annually, but it hasn't.
So I have changed it now.

Hello Josef
What is the next step? Doing another development cycle or release it now?
Except the spelling errors Ivan's change list is too long to do them all in the Beta state.
1. The loc # NIL topic has more than one place in the source.
2. Also the change in StdInterpreter need some discussion. String too long seems to be the wrong error message. It looks like #0 is missing at end of string.
3. Further is the multiline fields bug a scrolling error?
This 3 topics are a big development cycle and should not be done as a last beta change.

In my opinion, Ivan's findings should go to 1.7.3.
None of them is urgent enough to stop this release in particular because we are in rc1 stage now.
It will take some time to go through all the points and in the meantime there will be new
findings and the release would be delayed forever.

If we release 1.7.2 now, we can then start working on Ivan's list.

I think there are probably three categories:

1 - Urgent and serious bugs, which probably should be fixed before 1.7.2.

2 - Bugs introduced by the changes between 1.7.1 & 1.7.2-rc, which also should be fixed before 1.7.2.

3 - Routine or background issues than can be investigated as a normal part of preparation for 1.7.3.


I haven't analysed the new issues carefully, but I suspect that most of them can be treated as category 3.

Hello Josef,
I agree. We should release the current version now and do no more changes. There will be always new topics before the knowing ones are done.

from scanning the list, it seems to me that they are all category 3.

I would like to proceed with the release.
The next step, I think, would be to create a vote for releasing now.
Then we can update the version number, create the git tag, etc.

Ivan's findings would be a good starting point for working on 1.7.3 then.
