2022: Welcome Back!?

Does anyone else feel like 2022 is the first year in many years where we have gotten back together, in-person, for big events, small get-togethers, travel and even the daily office grind?

The Versatility of Xojo

Many people around the world are celebrating the holidays by giving gifts, which means more and more people are organizing Secret Santa events.

A Meetup of Xojo Developers in London

We got a lot of great feedback, the most popular being that there is a lot of enthusiasm to finally host a London Xojo Developer Conference.

Xojo 2022r3 Includes 60 Fixes for Xojo Web

While we do our best to write software that “just works”, bugs happen. Xojo 2022r3 includes 60 bug fixes just for the Web Framework. Twenty-six of them were fixed during the Bug Bash event. Eight Feature Requests were also included in Xojo Web 2022r3. We’ve been very careful and tried to pick those on the border line between being a bug or a feature.

Xojo Developer Retreat Recap
