Because of the world wide CoVid19 crisis, many developers are forced to work at home at this moment.

We think this is the perfect moment to have a look at X# and how it can help you to move your XBase applications forward to .Net.

The best way to do that is to subscribe to our Friends Of XSharp program so you can work with the latest version of the product.

To encourage you to take this step we now have a special promotion price for the first year of your subscription.

If you use the coupon code "XS-WORK-AT-HOME" on our order form you will get 30% discount on the normal price for your first year of the subscription.

If you click this link then the discount will be automatically included in the price.

PS The discount is also valid if you work from your office ;-)

Today we have released a new installer for XSharp Bandol 2.3b to our FOX subscribers.

Most of the changes in this release were listed in our post from last week.

Today we have released a new installer for XSharp Bandol 2.3a to our FOX subscribers.

The changes in these release are:

Compiler

  • When compiling in case sensitive mode, the compiler now checks to see if a child class declares a method that only differs from a method in its parent class by case
  • The warning message about assigning to a foreach iterator variable has been changed from "Cannot assign" to "Should not assign"
  • #pragma warnings was not working with the xs1234 syntax but only with numbers. This has been corrected.

Runtime

  • Added the SetFieldExtent method to the IRdd interface
  • The USUAL type no longer "caches" the dialect setting
  • Fixed some problems with ACopy() with skipped or negative arguments.
  • The return value for Alias() is now in upper case.

A short report on what we have been doing in the last month. We have not been idle, I can say, despite (or thanks to) the CoVid19 crisis

We have made some changes to almost every part of the system. Below is an (incomplete) list of the changes.

Compiler

  • We have added support for bracketed strings
  • We are now generating a version resource based on Assembly attributes even when you have included a native resource file
  • Extended match markers in UDCs now also recognize file names including paths
  • We have implemented the /vo11 compiler option
  • We have solved several signed/unsigned warnings
  • You can now use PCall() to call typed function pointers stored inside VO structures

Today we have released a new installer for XSharp Bandol 2.3 to our FOX subscribers.
