    In my quick testing tonight I discovered that Raspbian Buster now includes libunwind8 out of the box! This is good to see as it will make it even easier to run Xojo apps built for Linux ARM32. I tested it with a "Hello World" desktop app and my digital signage app and they both worked identically as they did on Jessie and Stretch.

    pi@host:~ $ ldd myLinuxArm32App | grep -i unwind
    	libunwind.so.8 => /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libunwind.so.8 (0x73e97000)
    	libunwind-arm.so.8 => /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/libunwind-arm.so.8 (0x73e51000)
    
    pi@host:~ $ more /etc/os-release 
    PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)"
    NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux"
    VERSION_ID="10"

    Interesting - good to point that out! I should have specified the version I tested was "Raspbian Buster with desktop" versus the Raspbian Buster Lite version.

    FYI - That's not true for Raspbian Buster Lite (July 2019). libunwind8 still needs to be installed.
