Just prior to publication of this issue, Xojo released a new version with lots of exciting improvements. Biggest of all is the adoptions of Web 2.0, which has been years in the making and is huge for web app developers.

If you don't make web apps, however, there's still plenty of good stuff, such as support for drawing PDFs with standard graphics commands. I can't wait to try that, as well as the new ability to save XojoScripts as compiled scripts.

Last Chance for OmegaBundle 2020

After a couple of deadline extensions, OmegaBundle 2020 is ending in just a few days. This is your last chance to save on the best Xojo tool bundle out there—including an xDev subscription and xDev Library bundle, Monkeybread Software's ChartDirector plugin, the awesome GraffiSuite, Valentina database tools, and so much more. Order now at http://www.omegabundle.net before it's gone!

In This Issue

Markus gets closer to his goal of an object-oriented listbox, explaining how to make it self-drawing. He also adds to his MapKit series, covering the best ways to annotate your maps

Stefanie has a great demo of Monkeybread's ChartDirector and what you can do with the plugin in Xojo.

Finally, I finish my series on PowerXS, my tool to make XojoScripting easier, this time going into the gritty details of how it works.

In our regular columns, I demonstrate a class I wrote for working with sets and Paul covers Xojo 2020 Release 1. Enjoy!
