'MP-Lab Versions'

On the Microchip web site, they have two versions of MP-Lab available
for download, 3.40 and 3.99.23.  Why?  Is 3.99 a beta version or
otherwise not-very-stable version?  Is there any reason to use 3.40?

Hi
3.99.23 is the latest Beta version and is stable enough (well it is not
worse than 3.40, put it that way).
There are a few enhancements and new drivers.

Try them out. I switched from 3.99 to 3.40 to get more stable system.
However, the old version proved to have more bugs than the beta. So,
back to new version.

Unfortunately there seems to be no version which would not take the
AltGr-key to itself. Very annoying feature with a non-us keybord like
the ones in manny places at the Europe. So, no letters like ${}[]~@
available without switching to a us keyboard. :(

Same here

Workaround: I keep a small text file with thoose missing letters in a file
window of the project, or Notepad file (easy to alt-tab to).  Then cut-paste.

 I think it would be quicker to keep an ASCII reference chart handy and
key the codes in.  Do you realise that this is built in to Windoze?
It's called Character Map and lives in the Accessories folder.  You can
add a shortcut to it to the StartUp folder.

 Don't forget to use the numeric keypad for the Alt-codes.  How do you
suppose I type µ ("mu" as in µF) or ¡ (degree) so easily using my
American keyboard (as against my German one)?  (Hint: I *remember* they
are Alt-230 and Alt-248 respectively!)
