2.3.5 (2037)

variable name enclosed in square brackets is inserted instead of the variable's value

I am using Simon 2.3.5 under OSX 10.3.9. I seem to have a problem with variable substitution: the variable name enclosed in square brackets is inserted instead of the expected value. For example, the SMTP test produces in preview

If recieve "220 " then send "helo [Username]" and continue.
Or receive "" then send "" and report failure.

If recieve "250 " then send "quit" and continue.
Or receive "" then send "" and report failure.

In the Service Edit window, it is

then send "helo {Testusername}"

The literal [Username] produces an error, of course:

250 /here-was-hostname/ cannot verify [Username]

The original script for this test had {TestURL} as variable, which resulted in "helo [URL]" sent to the SMTP server producing the same error. The testusername is my attempt to work around this issue and provide an explicit hostname to pass.

Check for Update text cosmetic glitch

This is just a cosmetic issue, but the Check for Update text doesn't use the correct version string when saying that the new version is available...it gives the current version again. See attached screenshot.
