Doors CS 6.9 beta is the final beta of Doors CS 7.0, containing many feature additions, optimizations, and bug fixes. It incorporates several bug fixes based on reports from the loyal beta testers. Doors CS 6.9 beta adds incremental improvements to text input functions, and introduces a Help item in the DCS Menu. It improves a small bug with the BASIC "Instant Goto" feature, and contains a near-complete rewrite of how programs are counted to optimize for speed and correctness. A full listing of fixes and improvements:

:: Improved character width calculation fallback for "unknown" characters.
:: Fixed FileSaveAs/FileOpen bug from FileOSExclude addition.
:: After extensive searching and re-writing and debugging, reconfigured how programs are counted, and fixed several corner cases that broke proper type detection. Proper hiding of programs for future versions of DCS also implemented.
:: Residual problem with SE caching and InfoPops resolved.
:: Repaired Goto bug that occasionally went one line too far.
:: Found and fixed bug where pressing 1-6 to enter a sub-sub-folder would cause the properties menu to appear.
:: Found and fixed bug that would occasionally cause DCS to miscount programs in a folder, thanks to dcsSquish.
:: Completed Doors CS 7 Manual.

As noted in the last item above, Doors CS 6.9 beta is the first (and last) beta to contain the full Manual for Doors CS 7.0. Please download it today, give it a try, and let me know what issues you find! Please please also read the Manual for correctness, completeness, and clarity, and let me know what you think. If no issues are found, the next release will be Doors CS 7.0. If bugs are found, then a release candidate, Doors CS 7.0 RC 1, will be released before September 1 (ideally within less than a week). Doors CS 7.0 will not be released until many testers give the latest beta or RC a clean bill of health, so please test, test, test!
