It's summer, which means some warm weather (finally), so I can work outdoors, and the return Omegabundle (http://omegabundle.net). Omegabundle is a superb collection of the top tools for Xojo developers (including xDev Magazine) for a ridiculous 90% off. But it's only for a limited time—so check it out before it's gone!

In This Issue

I'm really pleased with my contribution for this issue: an article on how to create document bundles on MacOS (a folder that shows up as a single file), and a virtual jigsaw puzzle game I've been wanting to make for decades. The latter involves much out of my skillset, so it's gratifying to accomplish something I felt was challenging.

We also have the start of a new series by Eugene Dakin. This time he's tackling steganography, the art of hiding data inside a picture without the picture noticeably changing. It's great hiding secret messages.

Stefanie explains how to create pie charts with the MBS plugins and how embed the chart into a PDF.

Finally, our columnists chip in with topics such as ODBC, programmatically creating desktop controls, debugging tips, and much more. Enjoy!
