Last friday, we shipped the latest update for Oxygene. The January 2014 release is a minor bugfix release for our 6.x compiler line, versioned as 188.8.131.521. While it contains no major new features over what we shipped in November, it does have a wide range of fixes across all areas of the product, and is a recommended update for all users (of course ;)).
January 2014 also marks the last update for our 6.0 compiler line, and with that, the last release with Oxygene standing alone. We’re hard at work to finalize “Elements 7.0”, our next major release coming around the end of February – and with that release, not only does Oxygene get a major version bump again, it will also gain a sibling: our new Hydrogene language (which we’ll start talking a lot more about over the next few weeks).
But first things first: The January 2014 release is of course, as always, a free update for all users with an active subscription. You can find it for download in your Licensed Downloads area, as well as on the public Trials page. It (optionally) includes the still-new Visual Studio 2013 IDE.
If your subscription has lapsed, there has never been a better time to renew than now to get both the new release and everything we have planned for the next year (and beyond). As always, you can renew your Oxygene license for a mere $499 per user. And we also have a special “up-renewal” that lets you renew Oxygene and add Hydrogene, for only $699.
If you’re a Prism user, abandoned by Embarcadero, chances are you might be entitled to extended Oxygene for .NET releases from us. Check our Prism FAQ for details, or contact us if you have questions.
January 2014 is a great release – and we’re even more excited about what we have in store for you for the rest of the year. Let us know what you think!
