Last time around we compared Codename One to QT and this time around I'd like to compare Codename One to the 800 pound gorilla Xamarin. Xamarin is an amazing product that I contrasted with Codename One in the past but this is worth repeating.Read More

With the 3.4 release we discussed the process of modernizing the demos and the first one we picked for this task is the camera demo which is probably the easiest one of all the demos...
With the 3.4 release we discussed the process of modernizing the demos and also mention that we would continue the trend of building Codename One on top of itself. We now have a rough outline of what we are going to do possibly starting with the next plugin update.Read More

I'd like to open this weeks post by covering some things we do and try to avoid on stackoverflow.

For years we treated support with a "we'll meet our developers where they are" attitude which is problematic now that we have more than 6 free support channels!
Notice that we didn't include the email/phone support for pro/enterprise users in the list of 6 channels...
We are thrilled to announce the immediate availability of Codename One 3.4!
Version 3.4 brings with it refinement and stability as its core features, this is a trend that we are very pleased with and intend to carry it on to version 3.5.
Fabricio just submitted a pull request that Steve merged to provide support for Windows Phone 8.1 in our new UWP (Universal Windows Platform) port of Codename One.
This is huge news as it means we can fully migrate to the new port without leaving developers behind!
