SB5 Professional Edition (beta) build #1078 is released.

Please click "Check for Updates..." from within your SB5 IDE to update to
#1078.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: we have used the new "Auto Update Scan" to automatically generate the
WebUpdate installation (took 6 seconds). Auto Update Scan compares the
folders containing our older and newer files. Then it generates the update.

We are 99% code complete now and documentation will be available next week.
