Xojo Announces Availability of Xojo 2013 Release 3

Latest Release Improves the User Experience on Windows and Linux

AUSTIN, TX, USA (September 17, 2013) -- Xojo, Inc. today announced the immediate availability of Xojo 2013 Release 3, the faster development tool for web and desktop apps. Xojo is a multi-platform, object-oriented development tool that enables developers of all backgrounds to create desktop and web/web-mobile apps. This latest release continues to focus on quality with more than 175 updates and a dramatically improved user experience on Windows and Linux.

Xojo is easy to use, easy to learn and is suited for all levels of programming experience, ranging from beginners just getting started, to expert level commercial and enterprise developers. Xojo apps compile to machine code for both web and desktop applications for greater security.

Xojo web applications are built the same way desktop applications are built - by dragging and dropping the user interface and then using a modern, straightforward programming language to implement your applications’ functionality. Building a web application the traditional way can be complex and time-consuming even for the professional developer. Instead of having to learn a multitude of web technologies, like HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and AJAX, anyone can learn Xojo and build applications for the desktop, the web, web-mobile, and soon, iOS.

“While this release is all about Xojo IDE improvements, I’m very impressed with the latest updates made specifically to the Windows and Linux user experience - it’s much better on the eye!” commented Wayne Golding. “In addition, I can now upload big files with Xojo Web without chewing memory. In fact, I just uploaded a 266Mb file and Windows Task manager is showing 7Mb of memory used! I look forward to Xojo’s continued success and eagerly await the upcoming Xojo Cloud and iOS releases.”

“Since we focus on multi-platform development, providing users on all platforms a reliable IDE with a modern user interface is very important. To that end, we put a lot of improvements into the user experience on all platforms to help Xojo users get their jobs done faster with a more intuitive tool,” commented Geoff Perlman, Founder and CEO of Xojo, Inc. “The Xojo ecosystem itself makes application development much faster and easier. For example, the web framework removes the need to learn 5 different technologies to build a web app, letting Xojo users instead focus on what makes their applications unique."

Xojo is free to use for learning and developing applications. A license is required to build a standalone applications. Xojo offers a 90-day money back guarantee on all new licenses.
