It seems like forever since the last Xojo conference. Pandemic delays and cancellations have meant a lot of plans going awry, but finally, the Xojo Retreat in Nashville is almost here. I'm starting to get excited and I hope to see many of you in person there. (If you can't make it, don't worry—xDev will be doing full coverage of the event in our November issue.)

In This Issue

We start off with an unusual article: based on a reader request, I did a survey of Xojo developers on the forums to find out the optimum Xojo workflow. Their answers are as varied as the people! There are nuggets of good info there, and thanks to all who responded.

Eugene Dakin continues his steganography series, this time showing how to retrieve a picture hidden inside another.

Many of you know how much I love XojoScript, so I'm pleased to run an article from Harris Ulery on making an equation evaluator with it. I don't understand much about math, but I love the concept.

Speaking of XojoScript, I finally figured out how to run them within another scripting language, AppleScript. (That's Mac-only tech, but since we're processing the scripts via a shell, the same concept could be usable on other platforms.)

There's plenty more in our columns: Xojo 2022R2, encrypted PDFs, LibXL, ODBC, and more. Enjoy!
