all this is so sad, makes me very fed up.
I wonder what any new users might think when seeing the unrest of the long time users to the current update.
any good news about 19r2, and I hear there some good updates, has been lost in the far larger negative comments.
I wonder how many other users like me, who are part of the beta program, have stopped testing any more.
the one glaringly unrepresented people in this are the 'new users', none of them have had anything to add to the assumption that the original (I am not going to call them old) events would make them run to the arms of some other language which is likely to have some equally 'confusing' naming convention.
there are new users on the forum that I have seen asking questions but none have suggested they are here due to the ease of understanding an event name.
It may well be that the hope at Xojo towers is that people will do as Geoff suggests and 'convert code when it makes sense', it appears that the majority of users who are posting on the subject simply think that it makes no sense to do anything of the sort.
For me the most unbelievable change, beyond the event name change, is the serial port.
I have no comprehension as to anything that might be benefitted by this, thankfully I can completely ignore that change and likely stick with the original serial control forever, or until I change compiler, but that also means any small help I may be able to offer new users, gained with many years of experience with the original serial control, will be lost to them, as will all the other help available from other far more experienced developers.
There are many ways to have avoided this, and still are, without anyone needing to claim a victory or lose face.
ts a simple choice for most of us when it comes to renew time and that I suspect this will be the final arbiter as to the fate of the Xojo.
