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.

A quick tip I wanted to share about using Web DatePicker. I was using the DatePicker control on a web page and the results didn’t look correct.
You are navigating Xojo web 2.0 apps and your use the browser’s back button to return to the previous page of the app. But rather than taking you to the previous page, you get a message that the app lost connection to the sever. This is even more common on a mobile device where we tend to use the back gesture to return to the previous page.
You can package your Xojo Web Apps in a Docker Image. That allows you to run an instance of your applications easily in a Docker Container. Docker provides the infrastructure to host the apps, start/stop them, switch between image versions – and much more.
Technical support for Web 1.0 continues to be available for any user with an active license. While we know that the Web 2.0 framework provides a far better solution for building web applications in Xojo, we recognize that each of you needs to schedule the conversion of your project for a time that is convenient for you and your organization.
Among the many new features introduced by the Web Framework 2.0, one of my favourites is the new WebChart class. Based on Chart.js, this class offers a total of eight chart types you can create and use really easily in your projects; including the Line, Bar, Pie or Doughnut chart types among others.
Are there bumps in the road? Sure! Are they worth barreling into at full speed? Oh yeah! Bring it on Web 2.0, I’m ready!
One of the big changes in Web Framework 2.0 is that web styles are no longer the primary means of styling controls. Instead themes are used to provide a single, consistent look and feel across the entire application. We made this change because dealing with individual styles became more complex and unwieldy as projects grew bigger. Themes simplify this dramatically.
With the release of Xojo 2020r1 comes the new 2.0 version of our web framework. While the way in which you build web applications hasn’t fundamentally changed, this new version is a from-the-ground-up rewrite and utilizes API 2.0 for greatly improved consistency. This means that the conversion process is going to be time-consuming, but will be well worth the effort as web applications built upon Web Framework 2.0 will be more robust, handle more users, be more responsive and have a far more modern look and feel.
