PureBasic has continuously remained on the cutting-edge for the past twenty years, diligently incorporating new features and functions as they become available on the respective platforms, all the while keeping close to the core, to deliver the most optimized and native results.

I can not remember a time when Purebasic was on the cutting-edge. It always lacked the latest things and you had to wait for at least a year or longer to use them without importing external dynamic linked libraries and write a wrapper for them. And when we get a new library it often is only useful for a handful of things. I want to remind you of mail libraries without encryption or http libraries without custom headers and much more. I often stumble on such issues when there are new features included in the latest version of Purebasic. It always feels like the libraries are only half finished.

I have been using Purebasic since 2005. At first only with Window, then a little busy with Linux. At some point I switched from Windows to Mac.
And what remained the same? Purebasic!

It's true. A few libraries could get a better revision. For my example the Packer Library. Or a few small bugs, which we can surround with a workaround.

But we have a great community here, which fills some gaps, which are missing in Purebasic.

Thanks for nice Purebasic :wink:

It is possible that what I wrote now sounds very rough, but I am writing the truth.
In blog https://www.purebasic.fr/blog/?p=474 full of lies and self-promotion!
Quote:
The one (yes, ONE!) exception to this is PureBasic, which has strongly been forging ahead on all three of the major desktop platforms (Windows, MacOS, and Linux), growing and evolving year after year, staying relevant and on top of all the current technologies, always offering its loyal user-base the best development experience.
Dear freak (author of this blog) you know nothing about JAVA, QT and others? What is the relevance of PB? He has long lagged behind other programming environments. It does not support OOP. There is no normal form editor. The one that is built into the IDE is very inconvenient and completely abandoned. It is not relevant and does not support many new features, for example #PB_Canvas_Container.
Is the popular ARM platform supported?

Lies! OOP is? RibbonGadget, GridGadget have?
What am I writing about ... PB does not even support unsigned variables 4 and 8 bytes, as well as a floating point of 10 bytes, and this is the standard defacto in "adult" programming environments.
Quote:
with the speed, size, and performance that PureBasic does. Its binaries remain highly competitive even with the likes of platform-specific compilers
Lies! The PB compiler is very far from free GCC, which optimizes the code a lot better. I compared the asm code PB and GCC. In PB, the optimization level is the same as in GCC at -O0. PB has a lot of dead code and instead of solving Fred just closed the topic.

Quote:
Our collective hats off to TEAM PureBasic as we look forward to the new and exciting magic that they hold for us all.
Again self-promotion. As usual several features will be added and that's it. The current trouble testing lasted more than six months and during this time there were only 4 beta versions. I do not think that the next version has added many interesting features.
