Bug report against lcStackBrowser

Richard Gaskin
Since this involves a third-party add-on for LiveCode, Peter Haworth's
lcStackBrowser, I could report this bug privately to the author.  But I
feel this is important for the community as a whole to be aware of so
I'm taking the liberty of submitting this bug report here on this public
list:

Bug description:  The name "lcStackBrowser" is too modest.

Recipe: Install it, explore it, poke around.

Expected result:  It would provide a means of browsing objects in LC.

Observed result: it goes WAY beyond that.  Sure, it also provide some
very nice conveniences for browsing objects, but the true scope of the
tool is so much deeper and feature-complete that it's almost like having
an alternate IDE, one that delivers vast functionality and asks far less
of your screen real estate in return.

Clarence ran a demo of it at our local LC user group meeting last week,
and lcStackBrowser is pretty awesome. There's a lot in it, all lovingly
crafted in such detail as to be an uncommonly admirable plugin.

Fine bit of work there, Peter.  Just that the name is misleading. :)
It's far more than advertised.

Definitely worth checking out:

You had me worried for a minute there Richard!

You're right, it goes far beyond browsing stacks, although when I first
wrote it, that's what it was, just a replacement for the Application
Browser.  But then it grew to incorporate Tools palette and Property
Inspector equivalents, plus several other features that aren't in the
standard IDE like saving stack versions and undoing object deletions.  I
just never changed the name, mainly because I have close to zero marketing
skills, including coming up with clever product names :)

Anyway, thanks a lot for plug, much appreciated.

Peter Haworth
Yes, you're right.  They lost some size and resolution when I moved the
website to a new host a while back.  I plan on putting some new ones up
there soon, and some new videos.
