Note: This directory isn't online anymore - updates are always released as new full versions now!

The libraries offered on this site each include newest updates after the release of a regular update. These can be downloaded with right-click > "Save as" and must be copied into the directory "PureBasic\PureLibraries\".

(If your internet browser automatically adds the extension ".txt" to the saved files, then you must delete it manually. In any case there should only be one copy of a library in the above mentioned directory.)


The libraries offered on this site are also released after the release of a regular update. But they are beta versions, which are thought for testing. So use them with care!

All other notes are the same like "updates".
