[prMac.com] Austin, Texas – Xojo, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of Xojo 2013 Release 4, the faster development tool for web and desktop apps. Xojo is a multi-platform object-oriented application development tool that enables people to create high-quality, powerful and secure applications for the desktop (OS X, Windows and Linux), web, web-mobile, and soon, native mobile. Currently serving over 150,000 users worldwide, Xojo is the best environment for both professional developers and those who want to learn to program.
Xojo 2013 Release 4 contains over 150 improvements, 14 changes and 7 new features, including new framework Crypto functions, new examples and improved debugger functionality to allow for easier debugging of threaded code.
Using Xojo developers can drag and drop the user interface and use one straight-forward programming language to implement the functionality of their app. Developers will experience true multi-platform development with Xojo, creating their app on OS X and delivering a completely native product to Windows users.
Xojo takes a unique approach with developing web applications by avoiding the complexities of traditional web technologies and instead offering one tool and language so developers can create web apps the same way they create desktop applications, resulting in dramatically faster development. And because Xojo compiles applications to machine code, the resulting web applications are very secure.
“Focusing on quality updates that improve Xojo’s framework and the user experience is our top priority,” commented Geoff Perlman, Xojo Founder and CEO. “With each Xojo update we aim to address the issues our customers have told us are the most important to them so we can further boost their productivity and reliability on Xojo.
