Very nice upgrade!

Compile times are much faster for me now that bug 572 is fixed.
I have close to 65,000 lines of code in my app.
If I make a change to a line of code and re-compile, it now only takes 9 seconds to compile and launch my app.
(iMac 2.8Ghz quad i5)
It is more than twice as fast as it was before.

Now that I am building apps for the Mac app store, the Make XCode Project option in FBToC is great.
I really like the fact that I can continue programming in FutureBasic, then easily make an XCode project for submitting to the Mac App Store.
And my Xcode project settings are still there undisturbed each time I re-compile.
30 seconds to make an XCode project from FBtoC. Awesome!

The FBtoC team has really done a great job with this.
