This week, during Virtual Fox Fest, we received a question from someone that wants to help to add functions to the XSharp runtime (in this case functions for the FoxPro part of the Runtime).
The customer asked if we could give an overview of the XSharp Runtime source and if we could describe how contributions work.
We assume that this customer is not the only one that wants this, so we decided to spend some time on this in an online session.

We will discuss this in an online session on Thursday November 5, at 16:00 CET (UTC+1).

The meeting will start at 16:00 but we will open the session room at 15:30 so you have time to chat if you want before the session starts.

We have recorded the session and will upload it to our youtube channel shortly, so when you missed it you can still see it in our Youtube Channel "XSharp Academy"

We have received several requests for "Corporate sponsorships", and we have listened. We are now introducing the XSharp Corporate Sponsorship program.

You can find more information about this program on this page.

Please remember that this does in no way mean that non corporate sponsors will be treated as second rate customers. We only want to "formalize" the relation with larger customers.

We will keep on giving every customer the service that he/she expects, just like before.

Yesterday was Virtual Fox Fest (VFF) day 1. Over 140 people attended this online event.
The X# team had a virtual "booth" at this event and spoke with some of the attendees.

Robert and Fabrice have recorded 2 short videos for the event that can be seen in our youtube channel "XSharp Academy"

Robert also did a (prerecorded) session about Databinding in .Net for XBase developers.
If anybody is interested we can also do this one more time as "live session" so you have the chance to interact and ask questions etc.
All you have to do is ask !

VFF will continue next week (on Wednesday 21) and in 2 weeks (On Tuesday 27).
There is a session next Wednesday from Eric Selje about "X# from Scratch"
You can see the schedule over here. Many of the other sessions are of interest to non FoxPro developers too !

You can still register for the final 2 days for USD 49

We have just released the public installer for XSharp Cahors  2.6a
The complete readme with the description of the changes can be found here.
This is the same build as the subscribers build, with the exception that subscribers get a slightly faster compiler, a .Net core version of the compiler and debug versions of the runtime assemblies to aid in tracking errors (not that we have any <g>).

You can download the installer from here (you have to login first):

{rsfiles path="installers/XSharpSetup26a1Public.zip"}

Today we have released a new installer for XSharp Cahors 2.6a (aka 2.6.1), which contains several fixes for issues that our FOX subscribers have reported.

The what's new document describing all the changes can be found here:

{rsfiles path="general/Readme/whatsnew26a.rtf"}

{rsfiles path="fox/Compiler/XSharpSetup26aFox.zip"}

Unless some important problem is found in the next couple days, also the public version of the 2.6a build will follow shortly.
Thank you to all of you for your continued support and invaluable help in further developing the XSharp product!

Update on Saturday October 3rd:
Today we have updated the installer, and added 2 fixes to the compiler (PCall in a file name with an embedded dot was not working, parameter by reference with the @ modifier inside a codeblock was not working) and a fix in the runtime (callstack for errors in late bound code was sometimes not showing the method where the error originated).
We advise everybody to redownload the installer and install again. The files in the new installer are all dated October 2, 2020.
