on release OUTSIDE!!!!!!!

I'm about to rant because I once again ran into perhaps the most common dress up mistake EVER.

Just about everyone is guilty of this, from amateurs to professionals: not setting a releaseOutside function!

"What's that?"  Well, I was just playing a really cute game on deviantart.  I slip shoes on under jeans, release, and I'm still hanging on to the shoes!  Why?  I was holding the shoes, but the pants covered them, so when I released the mouse, it didn't fall under the "onRelease" category.  Because my mouse was over something else above the shoes, that falls in the "onReleaseOutside" category.  No one ever adds this code, so it really makes gameplay awkward.

How to fix?
On top of the regular "onRelease" (or on(Release)) stop drag code, you ALSO have to set it to stop dragging "onReleaseOutside" (or on(releaseOutside)).

Happy Dolling :)
