[StrongED] ToggleBD 1.08 available

Dear All,

ToggleBD v1.08 is now available for download from:

The changes in this version are a new licence (BSD) and revised handling
of the choices file to make it simpler and more robust.

Trying to read the choices file on start-up with no choices file present
puts up its own error message instead of the standard 'File not found':

 'Could not read choices file. Reverting to default choices.'

If the choices file was completely missing then the choices would be
saved as a file of type Data rather than Obey causing errors when trying
to run it. Now the choices file is built in memory and then saved as a
filetyped file.

The SetupCfg file has been simplified, if choices$write is present we
use it and if empty copy default choices to it. This way it's no longer
necessary to distinguish between read and write locations, so can now
always use '<ToggleBD$ChoicesDir>.Choices'.

Feedback, as always, is most welcome.


Changes in 1.08 (from 1.07)

 - Now distributed under the 3 clause BSD licence.

 - Simplified SetupCfg file, always use ToggleBD$ChoicesDir.

 - Make sure the choices file is always saved as an Obey file.

 - Put up clearer error message when choices file cannot be read.

 - Internal clean-ups; remove code duplication, catch more errors.
