May 2021 – xDev Magazine is pleased to announce the release of our newest issue, now available in PDF and print formats!
The May/June 2021 (19.3) issue features coverage of Xojo’s 2021 Release 1, including improved ARM and PDF support. There are also features on cryptography, how to make FileMaker-like checkboxes, MapLocation, and how solving a minor problem can lead into a black hole of math bugs and number conversion complexity.
This latest issue of the magazine includes the following feature articles:
More ARM by Marc Zeedar
Xojo’s last update in 2020 was impressive, but its ARM support was missing a few elements. Thankfully, 2021R1 has fixed those flaws. Marc updates his benchmarks.
A Programming Black Hole by Markus Winter
Markus covers some obscure 32-bit/64-bit math-related oddities.
FileMaker-Like Checkboxes by Vince Du Beau
Vince wanted checkboxes in Xojo like he was used to having in FileMaker – so he wrote his own class to add them.
Holy Cryptography, Batman! by Eugene Dakin
If you’re curious about cryptography, here’s low-key introduction as Eugene starts a new series of articles beginning with the ancient Caesar Cipher.
Lost in the Woods by Markus Winter
Markus takes a break from his MapKit series to explore… mapping using Xojo’s new MapLocation feature. How does it work?
Plus: Xojo 2021R1 new features, App Wrapper review, new PDF drawing, and much more!
