About 40% down the World menu you'll see 'changes'. click there and a
new menu will appear - near the bootom it says 'recent log file..'
and clicking that will open of recent image save/quit events. If you
click on any one of those the system will scan the changels log
forward from that time/date and give you a browser with each do it
and method save you did. You can do a variety of things to re-install
the ones you want. A common situation would be re-installing
everything but the last few methods you changed since there is a good
bet the last one cased the crash!

Good grief John, nobody cares what MC version number stuff is. MC is
there to store your work as you do it. When it reaches a state where
you want to release a version you can save a package with a new name
and even call version 1.0 if you want.

Your code isn't 'saved' it is compiled and a copy written to the
changes log. This is not like editing C code and compiling a bunch of
files later. We moved on from that quaint approach a while back :-)
I won't tackle Morphic issues since I simply don't et to play in that
