    Re: twinBASIC roadmap

    Wayne has shown us a preview of the new layout of the twinBASIC IDE.

    The layout will be easier to customise.
    • all panels can now be closed/shown individually
    • the toolbar is also now docked and movable
    • dragging the title bar of a panel brings it into "floating" mode.
    • Using the grab icon brings it back into docked mode

    Re: twinBASIC roadmap

    can add Language packs for different countries-?

    The best project is to make a multi-file model
    use the same as the project file name.
    For example, modules and classes can be shared with Vb6.
    *.class,*.bas

    I want to put some frequently used modules in a directory where different projects can reference them.

    Rather than copying every module to every project.

    Re: twinBASIC roadmap

    Multi-language support would be a post-v1 thing that has no formal plans right now, other than everyone pretty much agrees it should be done. It's not currently set up in a way that would make it easy.

    Having external file support like a .vbp is a planned v1.0 feature, so should be coming fairly soon.


    Edit: Due to so many requests, this has changed since I made this post, and localization work should begin prior to 1.0.
