Being more efficient means we spend more time on making Xojo better for you. Feedback, our bug and feature tracking system, is a place where we spend a lot of time interacting with you and thus it’s something we very much want to improve. We have three improvements in mind. One will be made today and the other two will come sometime next year.
Staying in communication is important. There are numerous ways to communicate with Xojo. If you’re not getting notifications and you think you should be, please let us know.
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.
