Hi everyone,

This release addresses some bugs:


Bugs fixed:

 * appcache manifests did not allow for external network communication.

 * --compress-javascript didn't work under certain situations in 1.7.

 * view-up, view-down, view-left, view-right produced bad error
messages without trace when illegal movement occurred.

 * view-append-child produced a bad error message when trying to
append to a non-element.

 * applying a non-procedure produced the wrong error message
("closure"s instead of "procedure"s)


To upgrade, just delete the old launcher and create a new one
according to the documentation in:
