|I am ready to start making GrapeDesk v1.2 . Here are the changes I am going to make :
 I have fixed the Applesoft BASIC program error , where GrapeDesk crashes when you type in an invalid answer in a disk utility . (ONERR fixes this)
 It will now have GET lines , so you don't have to hit <Return> on prompts that don't need specific answers .
 It will now have organized descriptions . Every disk utility will have the same descriptions to avoid confusion , and text will be more comprehensible .
 The next public copy will not be registered under Emaculation . GrapeDesk will still be registered , but no name will be specified .
 Welcome a new disk utility ; RENAME ITEM
 We definitely need a new Grape Guide .
As I have said , those are changes . These are the obvious functions that stay the same :
 The Desk Accesories stay the same .
 The Applications menu is the same .
 The password function is not installed (unless by user request)
 The code for inputs stay the same (Sorry , ON...GOTO , we are using string variables) .
 As stated in 4 , all the menus had string inputs . If they had normal integer inputs , giving any alphabet will leave a mess .
 You can still run GrapeDesk from anywhere , even from programs . (such as application menus)
 GrapeDesk is still a Applesoft BASIC program . (You can't type BYE and run GrapeDesk from there) (No need for BRUN or - ; RUN will do)
 The new startup screen layout stays the same .
 It still uses the FBPT A2 MS (I don't know any neater way to do it)
 Still no Easter Eggs , people .
 It is still under the FBPT , although not official (explained in another post) .
 It is still text-based .
 It is still free .
 It is monochrome compatible .
Well , that's pretty much all I know of (or can type) . Anyone wants any changes to this list? I will start compiling when everyone confirms that production should continue . If there's no reply in two days , I will continue (with notice) .
So , as I have said , any objections (or suggestions)?
