I am gratified that we have many enthusiastic users of Liberty BASIC here. Thanks.
Without all of you there would be no new releases of Liberty BASIC. As you know, Liberty BASIC 5 has been a long time coming, and I apologize for this. But, I hope that you will all understand why this is happening this way, and that in spite of the fact that LB5 is still not ready to use, I have not stopped supporting the community. New versions of Liberty BASIC and Just BASIC have been released in the interim to give you the user a better quality experience while you have been waiting.
Now I want to appeal to everyone here. I love the fact that you are all creating your own games, applications etc. and posting about them here. There is a great opportunity here, and I want to shine a light on it. Did you realize that finding another programming or games forum and posting about what you're doing, bragging about Liberty BASIC and pointing others to the Liberty BASIC web site or to this forum is very important to the popularity of Liberty BASIC? Or, perhaps you like to write, and could blog about what you're doing? Heck, you could do both.
I do work hard to promote Liberty BASIC, and I even spend money on advertising. The most effective form of marketing is word of mouth. Zealous promotion by members of this community can make all the difference in the world.
So again I thank you all for your support and contributions. Please make some noise in a forum, on a blog, on Twitter or Facebook, or Instagram, whatever your favorite such place is!
