AllWebMenus Pro version 5.1 Build #760 released. Check out what's new in this version:

- New 110 bullets/arrows are added to the Image Gallery. Most of them (down arrows) are created to accommodate the new "Sliding Menu" feature that is under construction (to be released in build 764).

- Javascript code has been enhanced so that submenus are built on the fly instead of during the initial menu loading. This method results in faster menus.

- The images of the menu are now pre-loaded so that they are shown immediately when a submenu appears. Note: All images still need some time to be loaded during the initial load of the web page.

- New sophisticated wizard added for locating the missing images in a project (occuring when the project files are not relocated properly).

- Fixed an issue in Mozilla-based browsers, where a menu was displayed collapsed
the first time that the page was accessed. The bug appeared only in "Server-Side API" related implementations.

- Fixed an issue with the "awmRelativeCorner" parameter that was not included inside the menu.js file as it should (certain cases only).

Version 5.1.758 introduces a new compile option, allowing menus to function on rare server environments that require separate folders for javascripts and images.

dot.gif menu compile option of AllWebMenus
The file "dot.gif" is a required image file used to implement the cross-browser rendering of the menu. If missing, a small line will appear on the left side of every menu item and the menu may not show properly in some browsers.

Although it is an image file, it is inserted inside the "Javascript libraries" folder (eg: "awmdata") by default. This is absolutely fine for the vast majority of server settings.

However, in some rare server settings you may need to have it inserted into the "Menu images" subfolder by using the related "Place dot.gif in" option. In that way all images are placed together and only javascripts remain inside the "awmdata" folder.

On what rare cases is this option useful?

See below an email sent by a customer:

> Hello,
>
> I realize that after compiling a menu, the dot.gif file is always
> placed in the same folder as the library files. Unfortunately, our web
> host demands separation of image files (e.g., jpeg, gif) from
> executable files (e.g., html, js, etc.) in different folders.
>
> What is the best way to accomplish this?

This is exactly the case where the customer should change the option from default to "Menu images folder".
