We are proud that we can announce that the final beta of X# (Beta 12) has just been released to our FOX subscribers.
Some of the changes in this build:

  • We have migrated to the Roslyn codebase for C# 7. That will allow us to add many new language features in the not too far future and also solves some small problems from the earlier codebase.
  • The build contains some changes that make the compiler more VO compatible.
  • We have added support for X# Scripting.
  • We have made many improvements to the Visual Studio integration.

For a complete list of changes look at the what's new document in the General/Downloads section on this website.

If you want to support the X# project, it is not too late. We have a special 30% discount to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Visual Studio. This special offer is valid until June 7. Click here for more information.

Finally: we have also received another great customer example from Wolfgang Riedman, his "Door Configurator".
Look in the examples section on this website for more details about this example.

That's Good to hear,

The only reason we have both X# and Vulcan.NET installed at the same time is so we can support our clients that are running the older software, in Vulcan.NET, while we roll out the new software built in X#. So we TAGed and have frozen old software in Vulcan.Net and now the main TRUNK will continue on in X#.

My next big task to get all of my programmers (licensed, signed up and installed ) in X#.

I have both installed on my development machine, and they work well together. I must admit that I use mostly XIDE for development, but AFAIK most people that works with X# has also Vulcan installed. Personally I think that the co-existence of Vulcan and X# will be relatively short, as X# compiles nearly all Vulcan code, but has much more advanced language features like LinQ and full generics support.

Great job guys,

Quick question:
While in the process of converting our solution over to X#, we are going to need to have both X# and Vulcan.Net installed on the same workstation at the same time. Is that posable?

I seem to remember they didn't play well together.

Ah, ok. No hurry, just wondering if i missed something. ATM i'm not sure, if i should "restart" from my VO-codebase, as there are quite some additions i only added in my VN-time. Have to think about how to "diff" aef and viproj ;)

Hi Karl,
XPorter/VO is an own program - please ask Chris about it.
#6 Karl Faller 2017-05-31 11:56
i had a look into X#transporter in Xide, and see only sln or vnproj as possible source. Thought, it reads aef?

I have rebuilt our applications with the new version. The compiler has found some additional errors (#Null_symbol and event:namesym <> null_object). The programs are running now.
#4 Wolfgang Riedmann 2017-05-30 08:26
I have started also my migration from VO, and the process runs much better than expected, thanks to the very compatible compiler and the excellent XPorter/VO.
#3 Wolfgang Riedmann 2017-05-29 15:35
Installed and running. My applications are building and running well.

#2 Rene J. Pajaron 2017-05-29 13:11
to add more capability: XScript ability execute C#, VB.NET code as well. Anyway, I will discover soon this X# Scripting. I have a need for this kind of stuff.
