Please elaborate a bit.

Are you saying that the ultimate help file for PB 5.70 is not included in the official downloads :?:
And why don't you write about a German version?

Yes, definitely. I opened it and it seems to be the normal Help file from 5.70, but the file size is slightly different. Why is this being posted as separate file to the official download on our user accounts?

@Dude: Yes, fred was too fast, missing some (very few) updates, including history.
"forumuser" saw the few changes.
It is andré who takes care of the German version. Tell him if you want this version.
Me, I take care of the French version.
Fred, andré, me and others of the English version.

The question is of course, whether or not an updated German version does exist. If the German help that ships with the official download is not the most recent one, then probably many German PB users want to get the "ultimate" German help. But if the German help that ships with the official download is the most recent one, then probably no one wants to download another copy of the same file.

It doesn't make much sense to me that every interested German PB user should write a PM to André in order to get that information. It would be much better, if there were an official announcement of the "help team" concerning all language versions. That's why I'm asking for complete public information, which was (and still is) not given.

I will release the latest german PureBasic.chm tonight on www.PureArea.net.

It does include the help version from PB5.70 final, but already with translated history and several bug-fixes more, which were not included in the PB5.70 release. But the differences are not so essential, that you "must" download this newest help (will be included in a PB5.71 version as well).
Bye,
...André

"Ultimate" is the wrong word in English, and makes it sound like this help file is something different to the official version. For example, I thought it may be something similar to "Millihelp" (http://millihelp.wixsite.com/qref).

It should say "Latest official help file", instead of "Ultimate".
