I'm glad to see this as Basilisk, about 6-7 hours ago popped up a sudden announcement about a new version, and did I want to get it. I clicked "yes" and then after I got it I came here to read about it (I had forgotten I could do that by loading What's New from Help/about Basilisk). I couldn't find anything here about it! I got it before you even put this thread up! :lol:

Not possible, since the files were not uploaded until I made the announcement (that was done within the space of 10 minutes).
