2 weeks from now we will have our 'X# Summit' in Austin Texas, on March 21 and March 22.
We still have some free spots on this conference, and we'd really like to meet you there.

With the kind help of QLAdmin in Austin we have organized an interesting event.
More information about the event can be found on our website: https://www.xsharp.info/articles/other/x-summit-2019

If you are interested to come, please send us an email at .
Unfortunately the "early bird" discounts for the hotel are over, but they have rooms left: https://austincityhotel.com/

We hope to see you in Austin !

On behalf of the X# development team.

Robert van der Hulst

We are very proud that we can announce that we have just released XSharp Bandol 9 "Winter has come" to our FOX subscribers.
This new version has some new features and bug fixes. To name a few:

  • We have added support for XBase "dynamic memory variables" (PUBLIC, PRIVATE etc)
  • Some bug fixes in the compiler
  • Some bug fixes in the new macro compiler
  • Some bug fixes and new functions in the runtime
  • Some bug fixes in the VS Integration
  • We have rearranged the Project Properties dialog in the VS Integration. "Include path" and "Suppress standard header file" are no longer configuration dependent but there is one setting for all configurations.


{rsfiles path="fox/Compiler/XSharpSetup2Beta9Fox.zip"}

It's time for a short progress report. XSharp build has been received very well by most of you.There were a few small problems and most of these have been tackled and in most cases a new DLL was created and delivered.

If you look at our GitHub repo you will have noticed that the work on the DBFCDX is progressing also. At this moment index opening and index creation is working, as well as skipping and seeking. The files created are binary compatible with the same files creates in VO and Vulcan. Actually in some rare cases we found a problem in the VO and Vulcan implementation. In the coming days we will finish the work in the CDX driver by implementing updating , deleting and inserting keys in existing indices. When that is finished we will produce a new build.

In the compiler and macro compiler a few small changes were made, nothing big,

Of course we are also preparing for the X# summit in Austin. We hope to see many of you there. If you have not registered yet, it is not too late Please send us an email and we will take care of the late registration.
