We have just released the public installer for XSharp Cahors  2.5b
The complete readme with the description of the changes can be found here.
This is the same build as the subscribers build, with the exception that subscribers get a slightly faster compiler, a .Net core version of the compiler  and debug versions of the runtime assemblies to aid in tracking errors (not that we have any <g>).

You can download the installer from here (you have to login first):

{rsfiles path="installers/XSharpSetup25bPublic.zip"}

This will be the last public installer that targets Visual Studio 2015.

The next build of X# (2.6 ?) will only work with Visual Studio 2017 and later.

 

Today we have released a new installer for XSharp Cahors 2.5b, which contains several fixes for issues that our FOX subscribers have reported in in the VS integration, compiler and runtime.

The what's new document describing all the changes can be found here:

Unless some important problem is found in the next couple days, also the public version of this build will follow shortly.
Thank you to all of you for your continued support and invaluable help in further developing the XSharp product!

 

On Thursday July 9, 16:00 Central European Summer Time (14:00 GMT) we will do an online demo to show some of the changes we did in X# 2.5 Cahors (and 2.5a which will be released this week).
We will use Zoom for this demo.

The recording of the session will be available soon in the X# Acadamy Youtube channel

Today we have released a new installer for XSharp Cahors 2.5a, which contains several fixes for issues that our FOX subscribers have reported in in the VS integration and runtime. There are NO compiler changes in this build.

Today we have released a new installer for XSharp Cahors 2.5.
This new build has many changes. To name a few:

  • The Visual Studio integration has received a major overhaul. The background scanner has been rewritten and de "code model" used inside the editor is now stored in an external (SQLite) database. We have also rewritten the way how type information for external assemblies is read.We are now using the Mono.Cecil library for that, which is faster and uses less memory than the System.Reflection classes we used before
  • We have made many changes in the runtime, and fixed a bug in the DBFCDX RDD. We have also added a method to validate an index. See the What's new document for more information.
  • There are also some changes to the compiler. For example we now support typed parameters in compile time codeblocks !
  • Finally, this build also included typed version of Console Classes, System Classes and RDD Classes. One of the next builds will also include typed versions of SQL classes and GUI classes.

XSharp 2.5 will be the last build that works with Visual Studio 2015. We are going to make more changes to our VS integration and use features that are not supported by Visual Studio 2015.
