As xDev finishes its 12th year, it's natural to pause and ponder the future. The last decade-plus has flown by—when I look back and see the changes that have brought us to Xojo today, it's incredible. When I was a kid a "portable" computer weighed 26 pounds. Today a far more powerful iPhone is 129 grams!

I can't help but think we're on the precipice of a major change, however, as iOS support will soon be in beta and then in an official release. I can't wait and I'm sure you're excited as well. What will lucky year 13 of xDev bring? You tell me! What features would you like to see us cover in the new year? What excites you the most about Xojo and the future?
