In June of last year we deprecated our support for Carbon. If the word “deprecated” doesn’t mean anything to you, it means that we are no longer updating it. Our Cocoa framework is in very good shape and most of you have been able to easily transition your apps over to building for OS X using the Cocoa framework. It will soon be time to take another step.

I hear a lot from people that want to make database apps using Xojo but don’t know where to get started.
There were several improvements to web controls in Xojo 2014 Release 2.
Xojo 2014 Release 2 was unleashed today and in addition to many improvements, updates and new examples, we’ve introduced 2 new Xojo license options.
This week we have seen another example of why you can’t be too paranoid about Internet security.
Code Spaces, a company that specializes in svn hosting (hosting your source code so your team can access it) announced that their servers were hacked big time. Apparently, the perpetrator began with a Denial of Service Attack then gained access to Code Spaces’ Amazon EC2 account. He or she then contacted Code Spaces via email in an attempt to extort a large fee to stop the attack. When the folks at Code Spaces attempted to take back control of their Amazon EC2 account, the hacker deleted all of their data including backups and off-site backups. Unable to recover, Code Spaces has made the decision to shutdown completely. The cost of the attack is just too great to continue.

As you know, we are working hard and fast on adding support for iOS to Xojo (Xojo iOS is here, download it today!). Just as we have done for the desktop and web, iOS support will make it easy for anyone to build powerful iPhone and iPad applications. To help you prepare and plan, here are 10 things you need to know:
A bigger community is always beneficial to its members. More Xojo users lead to more ideas, more discussions and more resources for everyone. At Xojo we aren’t just marketing a development tool, we are advertising our truly amazing community! However, marketing is inherently met with a degree of skepticism. You say it can hold 12 times its weight in liquid, but can it really?
Memory (RAM) gets cheaper every year. As a result, new computing devices (mobile/server/desktop) come with more and more RAM, allowing applications to perform bigger and increasingly sophisticated tasks. My first desktop computer had 16K of RAM. The laptop on which I am writing this has 16GB of RAM. That’s 1 million times more RAM for less than half the price in today’s dollars. Wow.
