While there were no "pro" Apple Silicon Macs from Apple at June's WWDC, the software improvements coming for Apple's platforms do seem intriguing.

Not to be outdone, Microsoft announces Windows 11, with a new unified user interface. Xojo are already on it (https://blog.xojo.com/2021/06/24/xojo-and-windows-11/) as well as making progress with Android support (https://blog.xojo.com/2021/06/11/android-2021-summer-preview/).

The future is definitely looking interesting.

In This Issue

I'm delighted to report the addition of two new columnists to xDev. Vince Du Beau has agreed to contribute a column on databases, which we've been missing for a while. And Monkeybread Software's Stefanie Juchmes will be writing about the MBS Plugins each issue in MBS Spotlight. In her debut, she explains how to use the plugin to create with Zip archives.

In our features, Markus continues his Mapkit series and shares his Speed Test system, which helps you measure how long code takes to run.

Eugene Dakin is back with more cryptography, this time exploring the MonoAlphabetic Substitution Cipher.

Finally, I cover some of the Xojo-written tools I use here at xDev: it's crazy how many little utilities I've written to produce this magazine. There are so many I also write about one for my Beginner's Corner column.

In our other columns, Paul has a great tip about Event Definitions and Best of the Web covers programming careers, Othello, privacy, and accessibility. Enjoy.
