F.67 2.0 Beta 4

Released on November 19th, 2003

F.67.1 Release Notes

  • The /LANG parameter is no longer available for any text setting instructions. You must use a LangString if you want to make a certain text multilingual. This means you can also set one text for all languages. To make the license data multilingual you should use LicenseLangString.
  • Modern UI 1.67: Because of the new syntax for pages, renaming of settings and variable names etc., you have to make some changes to your scripts, see the Modern UI Readme for details.
  • Custom Pages now have a leave function. As this parameter is placed before the caption you have to add another "" empty string for the title to work.
  • .onSelChange is no longer called when the components page is created.
  • The icons folder has been renamed to Graphics and was reorganized. If you were using any files from Contrib\Icons in your script, you should update it to point to the new image or icon path.
  • UpgradeDLL has been changed, it's highly recommend that you include the new version in your script using !include "UpgradeDLL.nsh" instead of the old one.
