Last week, I presented the third in a series of Xojo / NetSuite webinars. The latest webinar was “Using Xojo to Develop NetSuite Web Apps” webinar, and it follows “Using Xojo to Develop NetSuite iOS Apps” (from January) and “Using Xojo to Develop NetSuite Android Apps” (from last December). This blog post is s a follow-up to last week’s “Web” webinar. A recording of last week’s webinar is now available here.

Building custom components for Xojo Web can be incredibly easy, or equally as difficult. If you want to build something unique so that you’re not at the mercy of a third-party library in the future, it really is “hard mode”.
The last big Xojo release in 2023 comes with a lot of performance improvements everywhere. The Xojo IDE itself is faster, which gives you Time to Reflect on Stack Optimization. In this post, I want to detail those improvements in Xojo 2023r4 that target Xojo Web including faster HandleURL responses, faster transfer rates in Windows and Linux, static assets cache control, Events improvements and a new experimental option.
Xojo 2023r3 comes with a new map renderer for your map driven web applications. MapLibre is a robust Open Source mapping library alternative that Xojo is using under the hood now. With this update, you can create truly interactive maps with Xojo supporting multiple markers and customization.

At Xojo we continually look to improve our skills and we are happy to be offering opportunities for everyone in the Xojo community to upgrade their skills too. At least once a month we are hosting new webinars. Webinars cover a variety of valuable topics, including getting started with Xojo, developing web apps, iOS development tips and the basics of using our newest platform, Android.
Xojo 2023r2 comes with a lot of updates for Xojo Web. While Dark Mode and Bootstrap 5 are the main feature in this release, we’ve put a lot of effort into making everything better including: improved accessibility, updates to the WebListBox and WebChart, IDE performance improvements and more.
DesktopChart, MobileChart, and WebChart have received some new features and improvements based mostly on user feedback. New features include a new Stacked chart type, more customization options for the already supported chart types and improvements to the chart control itself. Continue reading to get the details about all these great new things in Xojo.
