With 2014r3 shipped, it’s a good time to give a quick update about where we’re at with 64 bit support. I’ll walk through the key pieces involved in this effort and give some updates.
When it comes to software licensing and pricing, the goal is to provide just the right amount of flexibility without making things too complex. It’s difficult, however, to do this without some trial and error which means we occasionally make changes.

And very often you need to save data to a database. So how do you store the data in your database so you can properly deal with it? And does your chosen database make that easy?
In XojoTalk podcast episode 3, Paul talks with Eric Gibbon, a long-time Xojo developer and one of the organizers of the Xojo Users’ Group UK Conferences.
