22.214.171.124 May 02, 2018
*NEW: Multiple improvements for expression-like properties
*Added: a `like` b binary-operator compares the string a against the pattern b. The pattern b may contain wild-characters such as *, ?, # or  and can have multiple patterns separated by space character. In order to have the space, or any other wild-character inside the pattern, it has to be escaped, or in other words it should be preceded by a \ character. For instance "value like `F*e`" matches all strings that start with F and ends on e, or "value like `a* b*`? indicates any strings that start with a or b character.
*Added: The 0x or 0X sequence proceed the hexa-representation of a number, in properties that support expressions. For instance, "value = 0x100" specifies whether the value is 256 ( 0x100 in hexa-representation )
*Added: `hex` a unary-operator converts the giving string from hexa-representation to a numeric value, or converts the giving numeric value to hexa-representation. For instance, hex(`FF`) returns 255, while the hex(255) or hex(0xFF) returns the `FF` string. The hex(hex(`FFFFFFFF`)) always returns `FFFFFFFF` string, as the second hex call converts the giving string to a number, and the first hex call converts the returned number to string representation (hexa-representation).
*Added: a `bitand`, `bitor`, `bitxor` b binary/bitwise-operator computes the AND/OR/XOR operation on bits of a and b, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, 0x01001000 bitand 0x10111000 returns 0x00001000, 0x01001000 bitor 0x10111000 returns 0x11111000, 0x01110010 bitxor 0x10101010 returns 0x11011000.
*Added: a `bitshift` b, binary/bitwise-operator shifts every bit of a value to the left if b is negative, or to the right if b is positive, for b times, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, 128 bitshift 1 returns 64 ( dividing by 2 ) or 128 bitshift (-1) returns 256 ( multiplying by 2 )
*Added: `bitnot` x unary/bitwise-operator flips every bit of x, and returns the unsigned value. For instance, bitnot(0x00FF0000) returns 0xFF00FFFF.
126.96.36.199 Mar 07, 2018
*NEW: Display a placeholder for missing icons, images in HTML captions.

For instance, Images("e:\working\sync.ico") method adds the sync.ico file to the control's Images collection.
*Added: lfind binary-operator for format/expression. The a lfind b searches the first occurrence of the string b within string a, and returns -1 if not found, or the position of the result ( zero-index ). For instance, `ABCABC` lfind `D` returns -1, while `ABCABC` lfind `C` returns 2.
*Added: rfind binary-operator for format/expression. The a rfind b searches the last occurrence of the string b within string a, and returns -1 if not found, or the position of the result ( zero-index ). For instance, `ABCABC` rfind `D` returns -1, while `ABCABC` rfind `C` returns 5.
*Added: reverse unary-operator for format/expression. The reverse(a) reverses the order of the characters in the string a, For instance, the reverse("Mihai") returns "iahiM"

*Added: DPI-Aware Support
*NEW: Support for EBN 1004 version ( DPI-Aware support ).
*Added: The exClientExt attribute of the EBN/BackgroundExt/BackgroundExtValue supports DPI values, if the number is followed by a D character. For instance, if the DPI scaling is 100%, the 16d is 16, while for a 150% DPI scaling, the 16d is 24. In other words, "top[4,back=RGB(0,0,255)]", draws a blue line on the top side of the object's background, of 4-pixels wide, no matter of DPI scaling, while "top[4D,back=RGB(0,0,255)]", draws the line of 4-pixels wide if DPI scaling is 100%, or 6-pixels wide if DPI scaling is 150% )

184.108.40.206 Jun 29, 2016
*NEW: Support for EBN 1003 version.
*Added: EBN 1003 implements Colorable Region Support which defines a portion/region of the EBN object where the color of the EBN is applied. For instance, at runtime the identifier 0x1FF0000 applies blue color to all colorable parts that compose the EBN object. The EBN color is not applied to not-colorable portions of the EBNs.
*Fixed: The line's height is not updated once you paste lines with different heights
