One of the first things I ran across while looking at the "Welcome" pages was a statement:

"Tested on XP, 7."

Right, this is precisely what I've been talking about. A lot of little details need to be addressed.

is official testing really still being done on XP?

Definitely not. I am currently building and testing on:

  • Windows 10 Home 1903
  • Linux Mint 19.2 "Tina"
  • mac OS X 10.14 Mojave
  • FreeBSD 12.0

can we update that to include Win 8 and 10, if testing is done on them as well

I would say that we support all versions of Windows that are supported by Microsoft. So that's Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Server 2012 R2 (I think?), Server 2016, and Server 2019.

if not, should we just add a line that "many/most users run Euphoria on Windows 8 and 10".

That's fine too. The more future-proofing we can do to the documentation, the better.

but Mint is dropping 32-bit so my netbook is going to need something new.

I'm wondering if we should drop 32-bit support altogether. It would certainly slim down steps to getting out a release.

It is time to move any references to DOS to a chapter on historical Euphoria.

Yes, we should remove any reference to DOS in the made docs. But leave it in the update history, of course.
