In the last weeks there have been some discussions on how to prepare VO code for the migration to X#.

Stefan Hirsch has volunteered to do a session about this on Thursday May 20, 16:00 CEST.

He will demonstrate this with a simple example of code that we all have created. Step by step he will refactor this in VO to prepare for the move to .Net

At the end of the session he will summarize how you can complete this code refactoring using Abstract classes and Interfaces.

The recording of the session has been uploaded to our youtube channel

We have come to an agreement with Sven Ebert to take over support and maintenance for SEUIXP, so you will be able to convert your VO apps that use this library to X#.

A few days from now you will be able to buy an update to SeUIXP for X# from this website and to download a X# ready version of XEUIXP from here too.

Stay tuned !

Some of you have already seen it, but we have crossed the 2000 registered users this week.
Actually this would have happened a lot sooner, but we have pruned some old and unused users from the early days of the website a while ago.

To celebrate this we will be giving a 20% discount on new subscriptions until the end of May.

If you include the discount code "2K" in your order then the discount will be automatically calculated.

During our last online session on March 25th there was a dicsussion about how we make it easier for  people to migrate their applications to X# and how to document the common pitfalls and other problems. People suggested that they would want to help out with for example documenting compiler errors with examples of code that throws these errors and examples of how to solve these problems.

In this article we would like to list several areas of the XSharp project where we could use some help
