That Aurora Alpha2 version has just been updated.

-The window class has been renamed CWindow  *NOTE*
-The dialog class has been renamed CDialog  *NOTE*
- A bug in the dialog editor preventing a saved tab control from loading was fixed
- AddControlEx added to the CDialog class allowing you to specify any registered Windows class for a control
- writeln was changed to convert OEM characters before display
- FormatDate (DATE$) now uses the current locale as default when you don't specify a formatting string

The string library functions have all been renamed for more consistancy, as voted on by the partner developers.  The old function names will still work but you should stop using them as they are to be considered depricated.  The old names will be removed before the final release.

Here are the new names:

GetStartPath = GetStartPath  //unchanged
FormatDate = DATE$
FormatTime = TIME$
NumToHex = HEX$
NumToStr = STR$
StrFind = INSTR
StrLeft = LEFT$
StrLower = LCASE$
StrMid = MID$
StrRight = RIGHT$
StrRpt = STRING$
StrSpace = SPACE$
StrToNum = VAL
StrUpper = UCASE$
TrimLeft = LTRIM$
TrimRight = RTRIM$
ToAscii = ASC
ToChar = CHR$
Using = Using     //unchanged

Have Fun!

Another note about this release...

Since the example files were changed to reflect the new class names you will need to delete the old example files before installing this version to get the updated ones.  Or just uninstall completely and install this version.
