Full text of article...

Lots has been happening in the xDev household lately. My mom has recovered splendidly from her knee replacement and is now back at her place and running around as though twenty years younger. I finally got a new roof on my house (I decided it must be time when so many random roofers kept stopping by offering me quotes). I've been deluged with soccer with two major tournaments (Copa America and Euro 2016) happening simultaneously (and I even got attend the USA-Ecuador quarterfinal in Seattle in person).

Oh, and I launched xDevLibrary (http://xdevlibrary.com), a rebirth of the old RBLibrary I purchased in April. It's a place where you can buy instant downloads of articles and books about Xojo programming. It still has a ways to go, but it's a start. I'll be working on improving it over the next year. Check it out today!

In This Issue

Our cover story this time is by first-time xDev author Ulrich Bogun, who explains how to use NSTableView in Xojo. While similar to Xojo's Listbox, NSTableView is more powerful, but requires some initial setup and a different way of thinking. If you appreciate this kind of article, let us know!

In other features, J.C. Cruz continues development of his Health Disorder tracking app, Markus Winter has part four of his Multiprocessing series, and Richard Duke writes about the 2016 MBS Xojo Developer Conference in Germany (with photos). Finally, yours truly contributes an editorial piece on the dangers of tolerating bugs in software.

In our columns, Craig gets into Big Data, Scott looks at a logging module for Xojo, I write about randomness, and Paul explores HiDPI. Enjoy!
