A pleasure to meet you again after a few months out of circulation.
I'm glad that you and Les continue to move forward with this great compiler.
A pleasure to be here again and a big greeting to all. :)  :)


Morning Chaps.  Guess this is the latest home for Proton?

So whats new then?

A change in name to Positron and a new IDE (Positron Studio), although FineLine is still available if you were using that.
New dongle free licencing, updates will still be free but upgrades (new devices/functions) will need to be paid for and purchased directly from Les (top204), search the forum for detials.
Apart from that not much, many of the old forum users have made it over to here but some have not (so far).


I got a serious fright when I checked the old Proton website was cancelled. I thought oh no! I won't go back to PBP >:( . So I wrote an e-mail to Les and got a reply the same day and he said the application is now called Positron instead of Proton. I said to myself well in nuclear physic a positron is an anti-electron which is formed by a decay of a proton which leave you a neutron (ex proton) and a neutrino. Hopefully the positron will not hit an electron otherwise kaboom. Sorry I digress here but I couldn't help.
Thank you so much Les and everyone involved to have kept that great application alive.
