1.4 is a bit of a buggy mess. I believe it was because ilive didn't want to upload it until it had been throughly modernised and had most of the bugs fixed. By the end, I think the only modernisation that happened was introduction of the Ribbon (Not the end of the world TBH, it was an improvement on the old UI) and the new UI file editor which allows WYSISYG modification of SimCity 4 and The Sims 2 User Interface files, the latter only because it uses basically exactly the same code to define the interface.

Really too bad. The version we have really is rather opaque until you get used to it. I guess he must have lost interest in doing a final debug.

I used the new version of reader and it is not as good as the old version. It is like switching from the old version of word to the new version that is entirely diffrent.

In fact that is exactly what its like. The new version of reader looks just like the new version of word in terms of interface desgin.
