We are pleased to offer you the first public beta of XSharp (X#).

When we started this project we have promised a first beta version in the first quarter of 2016, and that has not been an empty promise!

You can download the beta now from this website for free. The only thing that we request from you is that you register yourself as user on our website.

Of course we would like to "warn" you that it is still a beta version of our product. It is not finished yet.

This beta version of the compiler supports the “Core” language, that means that VO & Vulcan specific datatypes such as DATE, ARRAY, USUAL, SYMBOL, FLOAT etc. are not supported yet.

The Visual Studio integration supports the Edit/Compile/Debug cycle. Only the source code editor is supported. Other editors, such as the WPF editor, Forms Editor and Resource editor are not supported yet.

The debugger may stop more often than you would expect.

Please note that this is an early build of the compiler. Some things will NOT work, you can be sure of this.

Please also read our other article about our Roadmap and support options.


On behalf of the XSharp Development team
