Updates in the LiveCode open source project

This was a quiet week from a development point of view – because everyone was busy at the conference!

Bug of the week

Bug 18141 - min()/max() functions are not tolerant of poorly formatted number lists

This bug is about a list of numbers containing carriage return (CR) characters not being processed properly by the min() and max() functions if it contains a trailing CR.

This is the bug of the week because it has a simple and effective sample stack that clearly demonstrates the problem; the reporter has made some helpful comments that indicate where the problem lies; and by testing in LiveCode 6.x he has helped narrow down what might have caused the problem (probably during the LiveCode 7 refactoring to support Unicode).

Help needed!
