XSharp "Anjou" Release Candidate

We are very happy that we can announce that, a little bit later then planned, we have uploaded XSharp "Anjou" Release Candidate 5 to the download folder for FOX subscribers.
As you can see from the version number we have been ready for a while, but internal QA has found a couple of (very small) things that we wanted to fix before releasing the product to our customers.

RC 5 will be the same as the General Release, unless one of our customers finds a show stopper in the next couple of days.

The General Release will most likely be released beginning of next week (July 3 or 4).

Some of the highlights of this release:

  • A new syntax for Lambda expression   ({ a,b,c => a+b+c}  but also { a as Int, b as Int, c as Int => a*b*c}
  • You can specify the base type for an Enum ( ENUM Foo AS WORD)
  • Several (small) problems in the compiler were fixed.
  • Many, many changes in the Visual Studio editor w.r.t. intellisense.
  • Many, many changes in the Visual Studio form editor. ActiveX is fully supported. Form inheritance is fully supported
  • We have added a VOXPorter tool that will help you migrate your VO apps (AEF and PRG) to Visual Studio and/or XIDE.
  • We have added some tutorials on how to migrate your apps. These also show you some common changes that you will have to make.
    This includes how to migrate OLE AUtomation and how to migrate OCX or ActiveX controls.
    You can also see this in the online documentation on https://www.xsharp.info/help/migratingappsfromvotox.html
    The installer will install both a "before" and "after" version of these examples so you can exactly see what we have done.
  • And many more. See the readme and what's new documents in the General Downloads \ Readme folder

Our 'Vs Anniversary' offer (30 discount) expired beginning of this month. However we do want to encourage new users to come and join the FOX program. We have therefore added a new discount of 30% to celebrate the release of X#. This discount is valid until August 31, 2017.

Finally, we know that some of you are still subscribers to the VOPS program from GrafX. And you are disappointed with what you got for your money.

We have good news for you: we are now also offering a Competitive update.
If you become member of the FOX program we will take over support from your VOPS subscription. And the good news is: if you have an active VOPS subscription then can subscribe to the FOX program with an additional discount. The price for the FOX program will then be reduced even more, depending on when your VOPS subscription expires.
