Because we recognize that you depend on Xojo for your development, we are making a product roadmap available to you.

Below is a highly summarized version of the big feature items on our roadmap. The order below is the order in which we currently believe we will deliver these features. Features are often developed concurrently by the Xojo team. Thus an individual release will sometimes ship with multiple features from this list. This roadmap only includes large features that we are ready to discuss publicly.

WARNING: This roadmap is subject to change. It will be reviewed monthly and revised if necessary. The order in which we expect features to ship may change as features get closer to completion. Do NOT make concrete plans based upon this roadmap. An upcoming feature's suitability for a project cannot be judged until a feature can be tested.
