This version includes fixes to issues found by beta users and also extensions to Widget API, such as new widgets (CheckBox, FormRenderer, RadioButton, RadioGroup, Slider, and Switch). FormRenderer is a specific widget, mostly for demonstration purpose, which renders a given FLX literal, say (+ 1 (* 2 3)), to a corresponding visual FLX form component. The core computational language of FLX app is a lisp variant called FLX Lisp.

There is also a new project template Widgets Demo that showcases all the FLX widgets and how to use them.
