At the xBase.Future conference this week we have announced several things that we like to share with you as well:
The first GA release of X# is expected in the coming months
This first release will come with:
- The compiler
- The VS Integration for VS 2015 and 2017
- Tools to migrate VO applications to X#
- Tools to migrate Vulcan.NET applications to X#
- Full support for the .NET Framework 2.0 - 4.7, as wel as many other frameworks, such mono, Xamarin etc.
- Full support for Vulcan.NET 3.0 and 4.0 runtimes and RDDs
- X# applications will run on all platforms that support .Net framework (windows, mono) when compiled for AnyCpu of when compiled for a compatible processor (x86, X64, Arm)
Later in 2017 you can expect
- The X# Runtime with support for most xBase RDD formats, runtime functions, thread safe etc.
- A Macro compiler that is based on the X# scripting support that we have demonstrated during XBase.Future. The macro compiler will support weakly typed an strongly typed codeblocks, and will not only be restricted to compiling expressions but will also support statement (such as for next, foreach etc).
- The X# visual studio integration will be extended with support for .Net Core projects, .Net Standard projects, Universal Windows projects an so called "shared" projects
A revised 'roadmap' document will be published at this website in the coming weeks.
A new public beta (Beta 11) of X# is available for download for free from the downloads section on this website,
