Liberty Basic in 2010

This past year has seen some modest progress in the world of Liberty Basic:

  1. Carl published a book titled Beginning Programming with Liberty BASIC. This is a great book -- I read it from cover to cover. Even if you're an experienced programmer, it is a fast way to get the gist of the language and you may even pick up a few new things along the way.
  2. Liberty Basic 4.04. This release offers better compatibility with Windows Vista and 7. It also fixes some bugs. I think it will be the last release of the 4.x version.
  3. Liberty Basic Pro. This is just 4.04 and Assist combined into a single product.

Hopefully 2011 will be the year of Run Basic.
