+ First version to start implmentation of text shaping/bidirection test support. No new features except through test interface, but the real hope is no change to existing text features. Another long development cycle feature like Mac Cocoa support.
+ Yet more work to support unlimited file path lengths including SoftLogikApp functions, bitmap vm paths.
+ BME: Support for loading/saving ICC profiles with bitmaps, and using them when converting etc.
+ BME: Added alpha mask support.
+ WIN: Fixed a bug in multiline control.
+ MAC: Removed pre 10.4 support. The current round of Mac development tools no longer allow compiling for 10.3 and earlier. Code still available should this prove problamatic for customers.
+ Lunux: Fixed bug in menu key codes.
+ Amiga: Fixed control key shortcut support.
+ Improved error checking in pixel rendering.
+ MAC: Fixed display of non-ascii characters in document and color palettes (and a few other places).
+ When window default position would cause the window to be too small, or off the screen, those values are ignored and the default document position is used instead.
+ MAC: Fixed copy/paste, highlighting, cursor forms, and more in Lion (10.7).
+ MAC: Many parts rewritten for Cocoa, now that Apple has changed development direction... So much more to go before 10.9... Ugghh..
+ When exporting to a bitmap while recording a macro, the bitmap type, alpha mask, and dpi are now recorded (the command itself has been available since 126.96.36.199)

+ New Deutsch translations for Console, CreateBorder, FontSpec and SendToTextEditor scripts.

+ Fixed downsampling of rescaled images to PDF. The downsample/reduce resolution option in PDF compression panel only worked properly when the image was not scaled in PageStream.
+ Translated old arexx script AutomaticTextFrame to python. This script will add another linked column after the current (last) column in an article. It will create the new column the size of the last frame or masterpage default based on the automatic text frames preference item.
+ Added new script "BatchConvertPGS2PDF.py" which will load all PageStream documents in a folder and save them as PDF.
+ Added new Insert->Article Name option. Works like Next/Prev Frame #. If you use this in a text object or single column article, it will use the name of the nearest article to the text object/single frame article that the command is used in.
+ Added new parameter ARTICLE to INSERTNAME script command:
** INSERTNAME [DOCUMENTNAME | DOCUMENTFILE | CHAPTER | MASTERPAGE | PAGE | PGS5059:ARTICLE | VARIABLE varname |
** MARK marknumber | FIGURE figurenumber | INDEXMARK indexmarknumber | PGS40:INDEXTOPIC indextopicnumber]
** [DOCUMENT document | WINDOW document~window]
