We are more than pleased to announce the release of Oxygene 6, the next major milestone of our Oxygene language. This new version includes a significant update to the existing “Oxygene for .NET” and “Oxygene for Java” editions, but – most excitingly – it also marks the first release version of our all-new Oxygene for Cocoa.
Oxygene for Cocoa is a brand-new edition of our Oxygene language, and it targets native Mac and iOS development with the Cocoa frameworks, using the same great language you already know and love from .NET and Java. We are very excited about Oxygene for Cocoa, and we think it will be a game-changer for how you create apps for Mac and iOS.
Oxygene for Cocoa is a very unique product, in that it is the only language (next to Apple’s own Objective-C) to truly natively target the Cocoa platform and the Objective-C runtime. It gives you access to all the great frameworks and libraries provided by the platform, lets you use all the native UI controls, and generates executables that are lean, mean and blazingly fast – and compiled directly for Intel x64 (Mac) or ARMv7 and ARMv7s (iOS).
Get Oxygene now
Support for all three platforms is available in the new Oxygene 6 package, which is a free update for all active subscribers who bought Oxygene form us since last August. It is available for new users at only $699 (again including all three platforms!), and individual platform support is also included in our Suite Subscriptions for .NET, Cocoa and Java, respectively.
Special renewal pricing is available for existing Oxygene for Java or Prism customers $499, as well as a special $599 cross-grade offer for any users of Embarcadero Delphi or of older Embarcadero Prism versions (XE2 and below).
We’re also for the first time ever introducing a new academic pricing for students, teachers and non-profit researchers, at an amazingly low $99.
And of course, as always, theres a free fully-functional 30-day trial version available, as well.
This is only the beginning
But we’re just getting started with this release and have many further exciting things planned for this year and beyond, including two minor updates for June and July, a significant “6.1” release in Fall, as well as several related products and technologies that will extend the Oxygene ecosystem that we’re not quite ready to talk about yet.
In the meantime, we hope you will enjoy the first release of Oxygene 6.0 and Oxygene for Cocoa – and we’re looking forward to hearing what Apps you will be building with it!
