8.1.4rc1 regressions

Bob Sneidar via use-livecode
I've noticed a couple of what appear to be regressions in 8.1.4rc1.  Can
others confirm?

1) "move tab to new window" in editor doesn't seem to work; it simply
mangles the tab bar
2) It did not chagne/offer to change itself to the default.  At this point,
when I use "save as" on a stack, it then opens in 7.1.4. (the "change all"
in the finder isn't a solution; I still have stacks that I want to stay
with 5.0)

Hi Richard,

1) Yes this a regression, and it will be fixed in 8.1.4 RC2:

2) I am not sure I follow. Could you please provide some more details?

Best,
Panos

For prior upgrades, the Mac would catch on to the new version as the
default either immediately or within a couple of days.  Sometimes, I'd
simply change the default application to the new version if I got tired of
waiting.

This time, 8.1.3 had been the default.  I removed it after installing
8.1.3, and now not only does it default to 7.1.4, but when I change it for
a stack, and then use "save as" from code within the stack, the new stack
is set to 7.1.4.

I can confirm that the script editor is buggy. If you try to close individual tabs, it borks the whole editor and no more tabs can be worked with. Scripts will not be editable and no more tabs can be closed. The only solution is to close the script editor and reopen it.
