Nearly all CPUs used by your devices, from computers to tablets to phones, now contain multiple CPU cores. With a multi-core CPU, your computer can literally do multiple things at one time, which is called multiprocessing. And with a little careful planning, your Xojo apps can use multiprocessing for significant performance improvements in your apps.

I’ve discovered a way to potentially speed-up your Internet access. Before we get to that, it occurs to me that the way in which computers find each other on the Internet may be a bit of a mystery to many. If you’d like to understand how it all works read this first.
Your devices (computers, tablets and smartphones) are constantly accessing their assigned DNS server and since they often can’t continue until a response is received, the speed of your DNS server can have a big effect on the speed of your Internet access. If you’re using any of the Internet classes in Xojo, this will of course affect the performance of your apps as well. Not all DNS servers are created equal. You are probably using one at your Internet provider and it may not be the fastest DNS server available to you. But with all the DNS servers out there, how can you know which one is fastest?
We regularly get customers asking if it is possible to put a Xojo-made application in the Mac App Store.
The answer is simple: Absolutely.
However, you’ll have to pay heed to Apple’s rules regarding the Mac App Store and follow their very stringent requirements.
Do you work with a team of developers and need to manage their Xojo licenses? Good news! You can easily assign licenses from your Xojo account to your coworkers’, giving them access to tech support and other features specific to that license from their own Xojo account. This solution is also great for companies with a purchasing department – one manager can purchase and control assigning, revoking and renewing all their Xojo licenses as needed.
Assigning your Xojo license to a team member allows that developer to use their own Xojo account to access the Xojo Forum, get tech support and report cases in Feedback. Follow these simple instructions to pair your accounts and then assign your licenses. Remember, all Xojo license is a single-user licenses, so an assigned license can only be used by the team member you assigned it to.
