Thank you, MVPs

The MVPs do a lot for us and, as much of it is behind the scenes, I wanted to thank them publicly for the time and contributions they make to the Xojo community. Though you may not always see it, the Xojo MVPs – Jérémie Leroy, Kem Tekinay, Anthony Cyphers, Christian Schmitz, Martin T and Wayne Golding – bring ideas to us and help identify solutions. Often this leads to an outcome that is ultimately an improvement for the community, such as including Workers as a Desktop feature.

Recently an MVP brought up that they don’t like the policy of automatically closing Issues when there is no action for 2 years; they explained that if a case was verified it should stay open. All of the other MVPs agreed and threw out possible solutions, which led to a productive discussion. The ideal solution was that Xojo would re-verify the case and close it if it is no longer relevant. We continued evaluating the matter internally and going forward – at the suggestion of the MVPs – cases will no longer auto-close. Instead they will get the “Needs Review” label, we will review them and close them if they are no longer reproducible.

We appreciate the time everyone puts in to let us know if they encounter issues in Xojo, this helps us continue to improve Xojo. If you ever have anything you want to discuss or offer feedback on please reach out to any of us, including the Xojo staff or the MVPs, via PM on the Xojo Forum.

William Yu grew up in Canada learning to program BASIC on a Vic-20. He is Xojo’s resident Windows and Linux engineer, among his many other skills. Some may say he has joined the dark side here in the USA, but he will always be a Canadian at heart.
