C8 ready for Win8 and more

A new release of C8 is on its way out. This release has been through an extensive test cycle, both internally, and working with many key Clarion developers. Most apps will see an immediate performance boost in screen/control drawing, especially when opening very complex windows, as well as a much cleaner rendering of closely spaced and overlapped controls.

Windows 8 is due to release next week, and we’ve added new support to the RTL, compiler, debugger and Templates, so you’ll be able to detect Win 8, and properly manifest your apps for Win 8.  All in all there are 100+ fixes/changes/features in this release, and with the lengthy test cycle this release has been through we’re confident you’ll be able to make use of them right away.
