This new version of Livebase provides support to import data from version 2003 of MS Excel (i.e. from .xls files). The functionality to import data from more recent versions of MS Excel (which was already available) has been optimized for both speed and stability.
All generated applications now detect if version 9 of MS Internet Explorer is used, and in such case they show a compatibility warning message suggesting to use another version of MSIE or another compatible browser (Firefox or Chrome). Generated applications generally work acceptably on MSIE 9 but the livetables suffer from temporary visual artifacts which can degrade the user experience. The warning will be removed as soon the problem with MSIE 9 will be fixed, which is expected to happen with the next release of Livebase.
