We interrupt this program...
21 April 2003--The path to Helix 6, like the path from 5.0.2 to 5.1, is littered with little discoveries. Many of these are quite unwelcome as they almost always stand somewhere in the way of progress. Some, while seemingly somewhat off the beaten path, smooth the way to the future.
While working on the code this winter, we encountered something that seemed to explain some occasionally odd and unexpected behavior in Helix that have been around for quite some time. As a result, we are today issuing an update to Helix 5.1, called Helix 5.1.1.
This minor update corrects three defects:
A few notes on this version
The patcher will ask you where each application in the Helix family is on your computer and applies to each one in turn. Thus, you may patch the one you are using or you may install a fresh copy from a CD or from a download and patch it prior to enabling it.
2) When patching is complete, your Helix folder will contain two icons for each Helix application. The patcher appends a " 5.1" suffix to each of the pre-patched applications. These may be thrown away at your discretion.
