SOWriteLn - write text line to std out (compiled console EXEs only) 

LibFuncW - Unicode version of LibFunc for calling functions which require/return WideStrings 

IMPORTANT - Release Notes - Backward Compatibility Issues 

FTP: FtpGetFile, FTPPutFile and FTPGetDirList now have an extra parameter for the host directory. This was necessary to provide support for more flavours of FTP server. After much consideration it was decided that the only sensible way forward was to have two separate parameters for host dir and host file. By doing so this makes the commands portable across all kinds of ftp server without any assumptions being needed on the format of paths. Unfortunately this does mean that old scripts will fail. But they will need only a small modification. In most cases just placing a comma between the host path and host file.

Backward Compatibility: 

This version fixes an issue where button and label dialog objects were inconsistently named. The name reported by the dialog designer did not match the name assigned at runtime. The naming sequence was incorrect. In order to provide the SetDialogObjectFont and allow for future possible functionality we had no alternative but to fix this issue. Unfortunately, however, this means that any existing scripts which refer to buttons or labels by name may have to be edited. It is unlikely that this will affect many people. If you do have any custom dialog scripts which manipulate buttons or labels programmatically you will need to verify that the correct name is being used. To check the correct object name edit the dialog in the dialog designer and double click on the button/label and you will see the correct name reported at the top of the properties dialog. Use this name when referring to the object in the script.
