RE: newRPL - build 1255 released! [updated to 1282]
All ROMs updated to 1288.

Small incremental changes...

* It has all the rules engine fixes for all previously reported issues (I'm sure there's more, so please keep test-torturing that engine until we make it good). Still not implemented the cool syntax we came up with to include hints and constraints in expressions. That's still in the TODO list, sorry.

* Replaced the algorithm of ->Q with PDQ by Joe. I think it works well.
* Reworked the menu for binary numbers, adding a base "cyclic" converter.
* Some keyboard moves...
a) Subscripts and superscripts are now on the alpha-hold plane.
b) :-> (rule separator) moved from Enter to RS-hold-0 (made sense to me)
c) | (given that) operator moved from Enter to LS-hold-2
d) ->Q is now at LS-Enter and LS-hold-Enter
e) Added the cyclic base converter to RS-hold-3 (the same BASE key, something like CONVERT being in the same key as the UNITS menu)

* Finally, improved the +/- key functioning. Now it is smarter to find a number in the middle of your text to change the sign.
* Implemented an in-editor base cycler that helps typing numbers in other bases, it's in the same RS-hold-3 key but active while you are inside the editor.

I know it isn't much (been quite busy with other stuff), but I think usability-wise it's a nice improvement. If you ever needed to work with numbers in other base, the base cycler is really useful.
Also, converting number to fraction back and forth just changing shifts is quite convenient.
