I mainly stick around around to listen to your unhinged posts.
…and to shamelessly and incessantly promote Xojo, and consistently absolve the company of any responsibilities for the numerous and valid complaints of the users posting here. ALL your posts I have seen thus-far follow an exclusive advocacy pattern, They are not technical or critical in nature, not demonstrating experience with front-line work and the associated struggle with Xojo’s broken bits during said work.
I’m more than satisfied.
You are in the wrong neighborhood.
pipeline of future developments and enhancements
Still using all the muscles except the one that matters? WE (the actual users who pay for Xojo to use it professionally) do not put NEW FEATURES, PIPELINES for FUTURE DEVELOPMENTS (i.E. Xojo Inc. endless feature focused qualitative decline, and management’s quest for moar marketing buzz) over having a solid foundation to stand on. THE solid functionality of the core API and the rapid addressing of showstopping bugs are of PRIME INTEREST to the customer who uses this API to generate revenue. As stated clearly in the following quotes…
But, still not worth the money any new purchase , same as allways, some shiny new thing, lots of new bugs that will not be fixed without lots of new ones in the next release.
Jack of all trades is a master of none. I don’t expect Xojo to be a good tool for mobile OS
If only Xojo IDE worked better on Linux
I have trashed money buying the PRO license as the extras never got stable enough, and I never was able to create something to put on production as the tool was always considered alpha, not beta, after one year of “bug fixes”
Pointed bugs where ignored
Every year they should launch at least one stable
With Web 2.0 in a non production state, it’s really crazy to use in real life.
I want Web 2.0 in a mature state. I’d want bug fixes like memory leaks and bugs like the current json fixed quickly with frequent status updates from Xojo.
Desktop was not becoming better: it is not more reliable and it lost the rest of consistency with the last changes
IOS is a functional joke.
I will not renew any license cause my professional Software is not Xojo Software anymore or it is in rewrite.
Xojo can’t be trusted to ship production level code anymore. That made Xojo and third party value drop into the crapper. It sucks, but Xojo won’t address the problem.
If somebody had simply listened to the wishes (pleas and begging) of his professional customers, he would be swimming in liquid cash right now.
As for investing a pro licence in that ecosystem, with the trajectory it has taken, you would be better off to invest the entire licence fee amount in some random shit-coin to see better returns.
Many have moved on due to Xojo’s lack of stabilty and ongoing bug problems.
Goddamn you dont listen to others (again, noticing a pattern emerging here), Xojo customers want stability and fixes to showstoppers, not endless marketing hype and half-assed attempts at unnecessary features that drain development resources from vital bug fixes and performance tuning.
If Xojo does not get off its ego and start addressing the mountain of showstoppers, and begin a return to quality focus, they will die with a whimper, they are no longer the only game in town and the free market has a feature of eliminating waste, incompetence, fraud, abuse, half-assery, garbage products and piss-poor performance. The die is cast, Xojo cleans up its act and focuses on quality desktop results for its core API (what it was actually good at) or is pulled under by its founder’s quest for adding never-ending shinny gizmos and trinkets.
