Every year we watch Apple’s WWDC keynote address to see what new features are coming in macOS and iOS that we’ll want or need to…
Geoff just wrapped up the keynote here in sunny, windy Miami, Florida.
After a brief introduction welcoming attendees from 11 different countries, Geoff began the keynote by sharing some graphs showing how the Xojo community has been changing.
That’s right, we’re doing it again! Xojo’s Black Friday through Cyber Monday sale is happening again and we’re offering 30% off all new Xojo licenses and upgrades to Xojo Pro- Friday, November 28th through Monday, December 1st.
Xojo 2014 Release 2 was unleashed today and in addition to many improvements, updates and new examples, we’ve introduced 2 new Xojo license options.
While no one likes to admit it, we all write software that has bugs. Recently, I was analyzing some code that seemed to be slower than desired in the Xojo IDE and I literally stumbled on a bug that has very likely been causing issues in VCP projects for a while.
Since about 2000, the IDE has been mostly localized into a variety of languages including German, French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Chinese. I say “mostly” localized because property names that appear in the Inspector, for example, have never been localized as this would create confusion when you go to use them in your code. However, a mostly but not completely localized product is not very helpful especially when the documentation itself is not localized.
Good bug reports are like art or great code. Often you can’t say specifically what it is about the piece of art that appeals to you, or what makes a certain piece of code great- but you know them when you see them.
We’ve talked about the importance and the value of good bug reports before:

It can never be stressed enough that a good bug report is the BEST way to see that your particular bug gets reviewed and action is taken sooner rather than later. Here are a few facts that you should always include in your bug reports:
Now that you have tried Xojo, you’re probably thinking of creating stand-alone apps. Maybe you are considering selling your app or maybe you just want to share your app with some friends.
So now you are ready to build and deploy your apps, and to do that you need a Xojo license. No problem, Xojo has a straightforward licensing scheme.
