    Vendors get batches of sales every few days. It may take a day for all vendors to send out license keys. If you miss one after nearly all other arrived, please contact the individual vendor.

    @Valdemar Dnbsp;SOUSA How much time takes to receive codes after buying?

    There is a FAQ for Omegabundle 2020 . As questions come up (by way of forums or through trouble tickets), these FAQ will get expanded. In the case of your question, it does take a few days. Orders get queued up and processed, and the Paradigma stuff gets immediately shipped. In general 3-5 business days is how long it may take, though typically less. GraffitiSuite, xDev Magazine and Paradigma's HQ are in the USA, but others are not.

    I'd like to shine a light on Ohanaware App Wrapper which continues to get better and better.

    Let App Wrapper take the chore out of application deployment. Once configured App Wrapper makes it super easy to prepare applications for App Store submission or web site distribution. And App Wrapper continues to be a part of Omegabundle for Xojo 2020 .

    App Wrapper takes care of adding the required App Store properties, creating high resolution icons, code signing the application and its components, correcting the permissions, placing the app into a App Sandbox and packaging it in a signed installer or creating a zip file.

    Take advantage of Ohanaware's hard work when packaging an application, that'll make any application feel more consistent and more powerful, all with minimal effort on your behalf.

    App Wrapper's intuitive interface also includes support for creating a custom Apple About Box, adding UTIs & URL Aliases, supporting document packages, adding high resolution document icons, providing Apple compatible help books, container migration, cleaner apps by removing unneeded languages, outdated architectures or left over development junk files. All by clicking a few buttons in App Wrapper.

    App Wrapper's Xojo Script engine, is the latest iteration, creating much quicker to execute Xojo scripts; that can be integrated into Xojo projects, thus enabling Retina & Sandboxed applications during the development process, all while providing direct support for Xojo's debugger. The result is a severally reduced development time as debugging Retina or Sandboxing issues, are now as simple as Command-R.

    App Wrapper 3 includes "Pre-Build" scripts, allowing App Wrapper to inform the Xojo IDE where the intended application is to be deployed, thus making it easier to use one code base to build App Store apps and apps for hosting on a web site.

    Some of the new features you will want include:

    • Application Reports, providing detailed information on the app and its sub components.
    • Cleaning functions for providing slimmer apps.
    • Testing functions for Gate Keeper (without having to upload/download files)
    • Installer testing and verification
    • Faster Xojo Scripts & new Pre-Build script
    • Brand new permissions correction engine
    • New Version Number correction system
    • Retina asset verification

    One thing that is not clear is that a lot of these appear to be annual licenses but not explicit in the purchase descriptions. We should make this clear imho.

    Well, most are perpetual licenses, so you can use them longer.
    But usually you order updates to keep using current versions.

    Yes, but you say most so it should be very clear on each product page what the exact license/support model is? :) We have too many surprises right now in this crazy world!

    Well, I am not sure about all products in the bundle, so let me ask the others.

    GraffitiSuite is an annual subscription. For one year you have access to any updates released during that time, one-on-one support via the ticketing system, and access to a whole bunch of great products. At the end of the subscription period, you can continue using whatever version of GraffitiSuite you had access to for as long as you wish, but will not have access to support or updates unless you renew.

    We are working up a combined overview FAQ about it. Once all the vendors have their materials in, Ill announce it. Most are compatible with what you expect. Ours is similar to GraffitiSuite - you get 12 months of updates + it still works after that.

    Ohanaware App Kit is now updated to version 1.0.1. Ohanaware App Kit is initially released as an Omegabundle for Xojo 2020 exclusive described as:

    The Ohanaware App Kit 2020 is a collection of declares and convenience classes that we (Ohanaware) have created over the last decade or so. Which we've then wrapped up into this kit to help other Xojo developers create better Mac Apps, through access to functions and technology that it's possible out of the box.

    In short, you get a foundation for building new macOS apps that leverage the many years of work Ohanaware has invested in building professional, best selling apps on the Mac App Store. If you want to start a new macOS application with Xojo, this is what you want as the basis for your application.

    This 1.0.1 update includes the following new features and fixes:

    • Demo Project: Fixed a NOE when trying to read xattrs that don't exist
    • Demo Project: Resizing the dictionary document window after an animation no longer bleeds the other control through.
    • Demo project: Resizing the Image View after an animation no longer exposes the old view.
    • Added NSShowAnimation to AppKit and an example to the Controls demo.
    • Added a new NSControlAnimator class, to aid with doing NSView animations across multiple versions of Xojo.
    • Added the OWWindowSplitter control. Resize divisions in the window, to show or hide content

    With App Wrapper you get a year of updates and support, if you already have an active license and use the same e-mail address, it automatically gets extended.

    With the Ohanaware App Kit, the same thing, you get 12 months of updates and support.

    After your year has passed, you can still enjoy using the version of Ohanaware product you have, but you'll need to renew to continue receiving updates and get support.

    AXNumValidatedTF is new to Omegabundle for Xojo and used for working with locale settings, numeric range enforcement, adaptive format and more for numeric input.

    AXNumValidatedTF from AprendeXojo is a Xojo TextField subclass (32/64 bits) for Windows, macOS and Linux allowing the input validation of a defined numeric range, using the system Locale settings for decimal and grouping text formatting.

    • Raise Events when the entered value is in / out of Range (active catching / propagation of the value).
    • Optionally displays a message Dialog when the entered value is out of range.
    • Optionally stays in focus when the entered value is out of range.
    • Use of Locale settings for Grouping and Decimal separators.
    • Adaptive formatting during the value validation.
    • Instance ToolTip / HelpTag set to the accepted value Range
    • Set the length of the decimal part for Real numbers.
    • IsInRange property to passively check if the value is inside the defined range.
    • Xojo API 2.0 and API 1.0 versions of the Class
    • macOS / Windows / Linux (32/64 bits) compatible.

    Among other features, the user can set the kind of numerical input (Integer or Real), Minimum and Maximum values for the accepted numerical input, the decimal length for real numbers, and the default value for the field. It also provides properties to enforce the input of a numerical value in the defined range (the focus stays in the field) and the optional display of an error message dialog.

  19. Is there an "upgrade" price for those who purchased the 2019 bundle? If so, what would it be and how would one go about ordering it?
    Thanks,
    Dennis
