Great job on the release of this new version Claude.  I'll test this later specifically the debug functionality.

Claude, I'd also like to congratulate you on this release.   The addition of more scripting in the HTMLs is a major step forward.

And reducing the ponderous 800+ lines in main.prg to only 215 lines is pretty amazing too.  

Claude's done his job -- and then some.   Now it's time for the community -- including me -- to contribute snippets of code or full examples so ActiveVFP can grow to an industry standard like PHP.  Or, if that's too ambitious, then at least we can make ActiveVFP the tool for extending VFP's heritage into the era of the cloud computing.
