Congratulations, many colorful flowers, and good luck for the future...

... not to forget a big "Thank You" to all main developers and contributors, who made this possible, for their everlasting passion and efforts put into QB64.

Also very nice, the new Web frontpage, it certainly will be an "eye catcher" for anybody searching for a modern BASIC language and stumbling over the QB64 website.

I am pleased with the new version, I appreciate the work that developers have with it,  especially enjoy the possibility of variable string lengths in user-defined types. I assume that the next version will fix the chronically known old bugs in old functions MouseMovementX / Y.

@RhoSigma, @bplus, @Ashish, @Petr:
Thank you guys so much.

@Petr:
One day, one day. We know about that bug and we are not choosing to ignore it. I just haven't been able to sort it out and so it goes. I'm certain you've already found a clever way to workaround it.

Thank for reply, yes in two ways: using shared variables, which memorize old mouse positions, or using _DEVICES as show us Steve in his program.

Hm, clicking on the (top) QB64 Logo here in the forum will bring us to the new www.portal.qb64.org now, formerly it was a nice quick-link back to the forum's main (boards) page, which could be used from anywhere in the forum to get back to the boards page. Would be nice, if this function could be restored.

While we're using the forum title to advertise the new version, please use the Home link.

I actually requested that the tag-line be linked to the page where the downloads were listed. https://www.qb64.org/forum/index.php?topic=1212.msg104300#msg104300

I was hoping the logo was separate from that, but I just did a quick check, and the tag-line and the logo are all one image. I can recall some javascript thing I did years ago that allowed for positional clicks on an image. In other words if I recall correctly, I think you can make more than one link to an image, by absolute position. I just can't remember the code. Too long ago. At my stage and age, that could be as far back as last Tuesday. :D

I was surprised and impressed too, by the modern fancy site. Congratulations guys! This should help attract plenty of new and wonderful geeks. Installed the latest v1.3 development build in both of my PCs, smooth as can be. Thank you!

Is there a changelog where you can see all the new updates, changes, bug fixes etc.? Also looks real nice :D
