Features of LMDCPGet unit were splitted to following new units: pLMDCPGetCore and pLMDCPGetMain


Several featurs of LMDGraph.pas were moved to LMDGraphUtils.pas (Simply adding LMDGraphUtils.pas to uses clause solves this problem)

LMD Packs

    • TElBkGndType -> TLMDBackgroundType (type with many new gradient's styles)
