You have not seen any progress reports here for the last 2 weeks, so it is time to write something.
Of course the development team is busy preparing for the conference in Cologne (April 25-27, you can stilll register!). It is going to be an exciting event:
- Fabrice will show X# code running on a another platform (Rasberry Pi)
- Nikos is going to show scripting support for X#. With that you will probably be able to run X# script files from the command line and/or include X# script code (read from external files for example) in your app. That would be an ideal solution for data driven applications.The scripting support is also the foundation for our X# macro compiler.
- Finally Robert will talk about .Net Core, .Net Standard and Windows Universal and show X# apps that work on all three of them.
With X# you are no longer tied to the Microsoft platform, but you will be able to run your apps on Linux, IOS and Android as well.
Of course we have not only prepared for the conference. Some new features were added to the VS integration and the compiler and they have also both become a little faster. More about that short before Cologne.
Finally we have included a new customer example on the Customer examples webpage.
