I may try it on windows and if it works ok i may try it there.  i'd imagine 95% of my target demo would be windows users anyway.  I'm really on the fence here whether to uses something native (lazarus, QT, wxWindows) or just go pure web.  The web stuff is, at this point, a superior development experience but these frameworks get rewritten every few years and I build software that runs for decades.  Maybe thats just not possible anymore 

Well I use Lazarus on Windows and Linux and it is quite stable (especially on Linux), I think the issue you are experiencing may be related to just Mac OSX.

Can you try to install the trunk version using fpcdeluxe? Your issue might have been fixed there.

Good to know there is full linux support.  I'll try laz out on a windows VM on my mac.

 

Thanks

"The web stuff" is very much dependent on browsers, their versions and manufacturers. That is not something to take lightly. Just look at all the poor folks that have to keep on using IE 10 or even 8 because of dimly written web based applications, that have been published in a fire and forget manner. I would only ever even consider going that way for non critical short lived Apps.

With an chromium based edge, all browsers will support modern web standards this problem will cease. Mozilla and others work on support Webassembly besides web/browser. This can became the better version of java (vm) and .net (il).

Yeah right. Do you really believe "they" will stop developing own tags and/or standards to set themselves apart from the competition? I'll believe it when I see it. Too much has happened since I first browsed the net with NCSA Mosaic on an HP Apollo Workstation (Micky D's was under construction back then... those where the days, man!)

I've already built a sizable app in vue/vueutify and honestly didn't have one issue WRT cross browser compatibility.  Of course i had the luxury of rejecting IE 10 or lower.    I'm perfectly willing to cut out that segment because the effort isn't worth it.

So this means that for delphi firemonkey developers 1 August is already here? We cannot submit to android store already?

You can still submit and publish to the store.

 

But when you submit application that does not have 64bit Android support you get warning that your application is not fully compliant with upcoming rules and that you need to fix that to be able to update your application further after the deadline.
