Version 0.18.1b released

FreeBASIC Version 0.18.1b released

On August 13, 2007, FreeBASIC 0.18.1b was compiled and packaged after a significant amount of testing and its availability announced on the General Forum at This is primarily a maintenance release to update a few of the binaries and correct the installation problems that some users had with the v0.17b release.

Most significant changes are:

- Strings and User Defined Types (structures) are passed default BYREF in the -lang fb compiler dialect, and all other data types are passed default BYVAL. This is different from both fbc-0.17 and fbc-0.16 versions of the compiler.
- Due to a name mangling bug in v0.17b, most FreeBASIC libraries must be recompiled to work correctly.

For a detailed list of bug fixes and improvements, see the 0.18.1b Change Log
