Excerpt of article text...

## Xojo 2017 Release 3

Xojo 2017 Release 3 shipped in December with over 170 changes and improvements. The big feature was something I also mentioned last month: the IDE is now 64-bit.

What does a 64-bit IDE mean for you? Since I talked about some of the benefits last month I won't repeat them here, but the biggest change is that you will now need to use a 64-bit operating system for your Xojo development.

For macOS, this does not matter since all versions of macOS have been 64-bit for years.

With Windows, this now means you will need to use a 64-bit version of Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 in order to run the Xojo IDE. Xojo itself can still create 32-bit apps, of course.

With Linux, this also now means you'll need to use a 64-bit distribution. Personally, I'm fond of Linux Mint 18.3.
