Well, I love AutoIt 3 - yet when a Install new release, I just go through period of frustration. Code that worked yesterday, does not work today - UDF function ABC was discontinued - changed, deleted, replaced with .?. something else, some other function... Which one? How do I find out? New release notes are not very detailed, and the Googling doesn't always work... Would it be too difficult to publish somewhere a list of OLD functions and the matching NEW ones, intended to replace them? Or leave the old functions in the new UDF include file, marked as "Obsolete - do not used in new development"? Or even better, report them during Syntax Check as "Obsolete, replace with XYZ" ? Or at least change the Help file, so that the F1 (Help) on the old function ABC indicates that it is obsolete, and that new replacement is XYZ, and perhaps even indicate changes needed to apply to the old code when replacing the old function with the new one? I think it would make life of many users much easier, or am I mistaken? My latest source of frustration is upgrade from AutoIt 3.3.10 to 3.3.12, namely its new Excel.au3 include UDF. Functions just disappeared, with no hints of what to replace them with, no comments in the code of the include file that would shed any light on what to do, what's happening... Or am I missing something obvious? How do others deal with it?
