Recently there was a blog post about Xojo looking at WinUI as the new foundation for Xojo.
Thats great – except (you knew that was coming didnt you?)
WinUI wont support anything older than Windows 10 at this time (specifically they note Win10, 1809+)
How Xojo handles this will be interesting to watch.
Will they simply abandon Win32 and any users on older versions ? I could see that happening as it would be similar to what happens with old versions of macOS. Then to support old Windows versions you have to use an old version of Xojo.
It may be irrelevant since Windows 7 support officially ended in 2020.
Hopefully MS can ship WinUI as planned and Xojo apps on Windows will get a whole new look and maybe even new controls
