Inno Setup 6.0.3 changelog:

Compiler IDE changes:

  • Added new predefined variable Tab.

Pascal Scripting change:

  • Added new Set8087CW and Get8087CW support functions.

Some messages have been added in this version: (View differences in Default.isl)

  • PrepareToInstallNeedsRestart: This message is used by the Preparing to Install wizard page if a restart is needed. If this message is not set by a translation, Setup will instead use FinishedRestartLabel and FinishedRestartMessage as before.
  • ComponentsDiskSpaceGBLabel and DiskSpaceGBLabel: These messages are used by Setup to display required disk spaces of 1000.0 MB or more in gigabytes instead of in megabytes. If these messages are not set by a translation, Setup will instead use ComponentsDiskSpaceMBLabel and DiskSpaceMBLabel as before.
