Some technical issues with the previous announcement - the blog ended up not showing on RSS feeds, etc.  So, here's another announcement! 

As promised, we have a new release of Small Basic!  This version contains all the most requested features by the user community.  Thanks everyone for the great suggestions and for making Small Basic better and better!  Please keep the feedback flowing.  We're listening.
