AddressBook > Contacts API

Is there a timeline for when Xojo might work on moving from the deprecated System.AddressBook functions to the new 64-bit Contacts API?

I understand that MBS has their CNContactMBS replacement, but porting everything over to that will be a huge time waste especially considering the example projects do not function properly.

I believe tha answer is “never” since addressbook is deprecated

There was a post where Geoff said it’s deprecated because they weren’t able to get the work done in time for R2, implying that it is something that will be added again in the future.

I guess we’ll see when / if this occurs
Until then alternatives might be better options since they exist today

MBS Xojo Plugins have Addressbook and Contacts classes.
