Hello all,
Aurora Compiler 1.0 RC5 is now available.

Licensed users can download directly from the link provided when purchasing, subscribers can get the update from the subscribers center.  If you haven't yet purchased your license to Aurora you can do so by following this link:

Remember: using pirated versions of our software not only steals from us, but also from all of the licensed users.  

Changes / Additions:
---------------------------
- 64 bit bug fixes.
- The compiler aligns data and subs on proper boundaries now.
- Assembler options added to executable options and projects options dialog.
- LEN now works with defined constants.
- Array access with unicode strings bug fixed.

Notes:
---------------------------
The new assembler options edit box is in the "Advanced" section of the executable options or project options dialogs.  If you have an older project you should check the edit box to see if it contains random data, if so just select all and clear it out.

The only assembler option that is of general interest is the -On optimization option.  Where n is a number greater than 0 and represents the number of optimization passes the assembler performs.  We recommend using -O9 as the minimum for most projects although you may have to increase that number for very large source files.  The assembler will report strange errors such as "Phase Error" if the number of passes is too low.

When in doubt just clear the box and compile without assembler optimizations.
