    If that's a summary, I don't want to see the details!! For those users who have been chomping at the bit for the release of V8, now you know what you have been waiting for. This 'summary', as Selwyn puts it, is mind boggling! I speak for no one other than myself - this is phenomenal. As far as I'm concerned, V8 is/will be well worth the wait.

    Wow, looks like most of what we asked for is there, plus a lot. This should be very successful. The wait was worth it.

    I don’t mean to embarrass the Alpha team,:o but I most assume that the largest number there computers will allow them to type is 8; otherwise they would have numbered this version 11.

    The improvements and upgrades included in this version could have been easily broken down in to 4 upgrades.


    Many Thanks for the entire Alpha team

    Just a thought, but I have a feeling as the days and months tick by, you are going to see more and more posts in the V7 forum about Alpha not running in Vista, or problems with it in Vista. You may want to put a sticky note explaining it is not 100% compatible in Vista.

    I'm plucking up the courage to buy. Problem is I have a number of apps out in V7 through the runtime kit. Any chance of a discount?

    Looks really good now, so I'll probably download the demo version. ( To add to A4 v3, v4, v6, A5 for Windows etc.)

    In the store page on Alphas site there are radio buttons to select upgrade. This will automatically discount the price for you.

    I just read your summary of new V8 features. I have V7. Is there a way to make V7 work as if I applied a user filter? After I open my form I need to be able to remove the old filter and apply a new one. In V8 this is simple. How do I do it in V7?
