xx Free upgrade to LB5
« Thread started on: Dec 11th, 2011, 4:20pm »

In order to enourage sales that might be lost by people who delay their purchase of Liberty BASIC v4.04 because they would rather wait for LB5, I'm announcing that anyone who now purchases LB v4.04 between now and it's release will get their upgrade to LB5 free of charge.

Does that include upgrading to the Pro version? So, If I go from 4.03 Gold to 4.04 Pro - would I get a free upgrade from 4.04 Pro to LB5 Pro?

I have a 4.03 Gold license, that I bought in 2009. I didn't really start using it until this fall, and have been quite happy with it. I have used it to create several data entry programs and a number of file conversion programs.

Because I am using it more, the upgrade to pro looks like it will be quite handy. Thanks for a good product!

I am looking forward to LB5, especially for the database support.

You don't need to register again. If you have purchased any version of Liberty BASIC v4.x, your registration works with the current 4.04. Simply download it, enter your registration password and start programming!

For anybody who purchased an ealier version of Liberty BASIC (LB3 or earlier) you get a special upgrate price for LB4.x.

As Alyce says, you don't need to pay. Just download the latest from the site. Your registration code will work.

If you do want to pay now you can purchase the $19.95 upgrade on our site and that will get you a new registration email and code, and I'll be happy to credit that towards an upgrade to LB5 (that will cover the whole upgrade price in fact). smiley

Carl I did purchase 4.04 but never received the new registration. I have the receipt for the purchase. Could you PM me on how I can get the new registration?

Alyce & Carl,
Thanks for the explanation about upgrading, I missed that.

I went ahead and purchased the upgrade from Gold 4.03 to Pro 4.04 because I wanted the additional tools which are included in the Pro version.

Looking forward to LB5 Pro!
Thanks! cheesy

Being a life long user of DOS and various versions of Windows I am struggling to understand the mysteries of Linux and all the strange named applications from all over the world. Unlike Windows produced by in English speaking country.

Being basically free I am tinkering with a number of versions like Puppy Linux I bought from EBay, and an old Knoppix running in RAM. Because of certain warnings regarding losing Windows files, I am very reluctant to install Linux along with Windows on the same drive. I may install Ubunto or Suse on a spare small drive some time. In view of all such problems I am very skeptical of claims it will replace Windows everywhere one day just because it is free.

I take it the new version 5 of LB coming will initially be shareware as with previous versions, if only to give us a chance to learn how to first run such on Linux.

Gordon, try linux Mint 10 (or 11 but not 12), your scepticism may then fade. Apart from the disc/file structure it is as close to Windoze as you will get! Install WINE from the Software Manager and LB4 for windows mostly works. Complex graphics is the only area I have found troublesome. cool

Thanks I will look into Mint. I saw somewhere the highly recommended Ubuntu may not have tha lates version of Wine if needed by other software. It is not on Puppy Linux. My pal says Wine is on his version of Suse.

I highly endorse almost any Linux. Don't know why you'd pay- most are free downloads or magazine DVDs.
I'm not a fan of MS. I've seen too much of how they've distorted the educational use of computers. The UK government until recently connived in the con. Now the Education mInister is making a few sensible suggestions, amonmg a lot of rubbish. Have you seen the Raspberry PI & BBC new micro projects?

Just two days ago friend about to chuck out a ten-year old Pentium III computer wanted me to make sure there was no information on the hard drive. (It had been in an attic for a few years & had Win98 on it!!) Instead I just wrote Linux over the top, reformatting all the info. Then I realised I could take out the hard drive completely, and now it's running on a CompactF 4G memory card & DVD drive only. Now it can sit as a server. Nice & quiet. You can't play around like that with MS licensed OS.

Ignore the weird names of Linux programs. That's just part of the modern world- think of names like Flickr or Bing.

As for 'missing' things like Wine- Ubuntu & most others just download them automatically, for free, from 'repositories' online. Updates are automatic too, & don't arbitrarily reset your computer..

Loved your 'life long user of DOS' comment. Hadn't realised just how young you are! By the time DOS came out I was old in the ways of computing.

I am 78 and as some know me here started first on the Sinclair ZX81 and the BBC Micro, later the Master with the old 8086 CPU, then CPM on the Einstein. I agree Windows has many faults like bloating, and Linux can be very handy able to tinker with such as Partitions etc as I discovered on a Windows repairs CD from EBay with umpteen software such as a simple Version of Linux included.

I did download Ubunto and fathomed out how burn the ISO file, I had never heard of before. But it took 50 minutes to download, as I am stuck on 2.2 Mps Broadband waiting for faster speeds here sometime this year. This is only possible with government funding in distressed areas like this. So I only pay some 99p for various Linux to try. But because I dare not risk upsetting Windows on this main PC installing a Linux on the drive, I had no luck installing Suse of Ubunto on an Old PC because it only has 128 Mb or RAM.

Mr. Gundel sez Quote:

Hot diggity, I'm in! I've been using JustBASIC for a couple of years now and it's proven to be simple, functional and powerful; just what I was looking for when I found it. Thank you, Mr. Gundel, for giving it to us for free... it has allowed me to get back into programming easily, even after a 20 year hiatus, and start building Windows apps with little more than my rudimentary remembrance of BASIC dialects from the '80s.

...and you're absolutely right. I would've waited until LibertyBASIC 5 was released to step up from JB, but with your above assurance in place I think I've waited long enough. However, I have one question regarding my pending purchase of LibertyBASIC 4.04 Gold:

If I opt for the "Liberty BASIC on CDROM", is it a printed & pressed CD-ROM with case\insert\backart\etc or just a burnt CD-R? What's included on the CD? If it's just the stuff you'd download from the website burnt to a CD-R then I'll just download the stuff and register. If it's a "real" CD-ROM with case\insert\extra goodies I'd much rather opt for that. I'm old-skool and prefer to receive physical property with my software purchases. (Ah, the smell of new software! *sigh* You just can't get that from an internet download.)

Besides, it's my birthday gift from my wife and she wants something to wrap. (hey, she told me to get something that I'd actually use... for once) ^_^

Thanx for your attention.

I paid US$ 100+ for LB 4.03 w/Assist over 4 years ago, and have used it every day since (having upgraded to 4.04 pro in the meantime, although 03 is still in use on my XP machine). What a bargain@6/day! cheesy

I'm new to L-BASIC and wonder if version 5 has been released since I can't find it anywhere.
