yes, thanks Geoff for quoting me, I will take that as a reason to answer personally to you.
it appears to me that listening has absolutely nothing to do with hearing.
20R1 is in testing? did i miss something? I thought that was not public information and only supposed to be available to 'Testers'.
This cycle is indeed unusual.
it was unusual by some large extent before MaciOS came along to mess the party up.
blah blah about the releases, honestly Geoff, you are in command, get some engineers into the project, there are loads of competent ones in this forum who would like to help, and most likely would do for a free licence now and again.
Please, for once, just stick a pin in the road map, show everyone you are confident about the state of the release.
if its not going to happen this year then say so, people will respect honesty above blah blah blah.
'cool' is just not a cool word anymore, and has not been for a couple of decades, lets grow up and use 'reliable', 'stable' and 'viable for the future' as key phrases.
Thanks for speaking for the whole team, it might be nice to hear them speaking for themselves too now and again.
My personal enthusiasm is for the product, its potential, where it might be able to go and kick the backside of some more established IDE, I love to use Xojo, I do not like the name, but who would care about that, I have not had much trust in the path the product is taking now.
I am desperate to join in the evangelism Geoff, but the preacher has a bad cold and the words to me seem muffled and just out of reach, thank goodness this little lamb is not important to the flock and I can be let loose like everyone else on the peripherals, baaaaaaaaaaa.
that is my opinion, and in no way suggests that anyone else would think the same way nor has ever suggested to me that they might be of a similar opinion.
also, I have no intention to abuse, denigrate nor personally target a person nor to demean.
I am offering a very forthright opinion to someone who has engaged me directly by quoting my text.
were I not so inclined to be emotionally invested in the Xojo product I would not be writing this message.
I hope my, and other users concerns, are considered.
please ask people why they do not renew their licences.
Regards to you Geoff and all the staff.
