A Worker provides a way for you to have code that runs on multiple CPU cores. A Worker achieves this by running its code in a Console app. One or more of these console apps are started based on your Worker settings. Since these run as Console apps, the OS treats them as separate processes and spreads them out amongst available CPU cores.
Starting with Xojo 2020 Release 2 you’ll be able to build your own Universal Binary apps! All you’ll have to do is go to your macOS Build Settings and change the Architecture from “x64 (64-bit)” to “Universal” and re-build your project. Xojo does everything else for you.
Right now, Xojo 2020r2 is in the late testing phase and will support building for Apple Silicon and Big Sur as well as many other new features and improvements.
You’ve probably wondered how we decide what features and bugs fixes will be added in any given Xojo release. What we care about most is what will have the greatest benefit to users and what will it cost to provide that benefit. If you have reported a bug or need a workaround for an issue, Xojo wants to help you find a solution so reach out to us via Feedback, or email our support team, or on the Forums.
Xojo 2020r1 upgraded to SQLite 3.31.1. Notable new features include PRAGMA lists and generated columns aka computed columns!
Our vision for Xojo Cloud is a simple, one-click deployment option for your web app. Xojo Cloud allows you to focus on developing your app instead of dealing with the nitty gritty details of web hosting and security. Xojo Cloud has tons of new stuff to compliment apps built with Xojo 2020r1!
Today compiled the first native Xojo app for Apple Silicon. “Hello World” is a huge step towards bringing you the ability to build your apps for Apple’s future computing platform.
ARC4 is a symmetric encryption algorithm fast and easy to implement. Being symmetric does means that it uses the same function with the same key (varying from 40 to 2048 bits) both for cyphering and de-cyphering a block of data.
Is it the most secure or robust encryption algorithm around? Not really. But it provides a good amount of performance and you can take further steps in order to correct some of its flaws. So, continue reading if you are interested in having this one in your developer toolset implemented as a Class with separate methods to encrypt and decrypt a block of information (even if it uses the same function in both cases).
With the RFC classes of the MBS Xojo Tools Plugin you can build RFC interfaces to SAP systems.
Depending on your style of coding the Enumeration Editor might be used regularly or not a lot. But, either way it probably contains a secret or two waiting for you.
