Have all bugs reported in rc 4/5 been cleared with this release, or are there still some outstanding?

We are keen to roll-over for the extra WC benefits but some of these bug's seem to have been terminal.

I am very happy with it, even more than I expected. I have no complaints (yet) whatsoever. It is very fast and looks very crispy. The only thing that didn't look so good so far are the fonts in Microsoft Word (for the Mac) but hey who needs Microsoft? Some applications still need to be optimized for the higher resolutions which is also the case for Servoy but I expect this will have to be done by Eclipse or maybe by changing the fonts somewhat...

I found a fix to enable a Retina Eclipse:

From: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=382972

Do "Show package contents" on the Eclipse.app. Edit Contents/Info.plist. Just above
Place this: NSHighResolutionCapable
Then, log out or make a copy of the app so that OS X will notice the change. Now, the info window will not show "Open in Low Resolution" as checked. Launch Eclipse and enjoy your new retina awesomeness.

Does anybody have any idea where I can find this?

The same article also shows a screenshot of a checkbox "Open in Low Resolution" in the Eclipse Info window but I couldn't find this yet either.

do you have a list of those cases? We fixed most of them that where really regressions from 6.0 that we know of.

Hello,
TabPanels are not fired in Firefox on my system with Version 6.1, it's always on the first tab and I cannot switch to the others. IE9 is working fine. Has someone else the same problem?

Next problem.
I want to change an Image at runtime depending on a result within the record. In 6.0.6 I have used onRender with event.getRenderable()["imageURL"] = "media:///Info_xy.png";
It's not working on 6.1.
Error: Java class "com.servoy.j2db.ui.RenderableWrapper" has no public instance field or method named "imageURL".
Do I have to use an other statement instead?

We are seeing some strange behavior in the Web Client.

In Firefox:
- on TABLE_VIEW forms, all buttons in the grid do not display the images set via the imageMedia property, in all other browsers which we tested the images are displayed correctly

In IE9:
- if the last field on a form is of type TEXT_AREA, then on a second click on the form (regardless on which field the user has clicked) the focus is captured by the TEXT_AREA and the user cannot focus any other field; in all other browsers which we tested this issue is not present

Has anyone else seen something similar

that was not supported code, this will not work in 6.1
We have (and had) only a supported set of properties that you can set:
