New Code Snippets Database graphics routines
Two new overloaded GreyScale routines have been added the Code Snippets database. They both convert a colour bitmap into a 24bit greyscale bitmap. One of three greyscale conversion methods can be selected: lightness, average and luminosity. The required method is passed to the routines as an identifier from the new TGreyScaleMethod enumeration.

Release 3.1 of the Stream Extension Classes is now available. This release adds overloads for 64 bit integer parameters to TStream descendant SetSize and Seek methods.
