Updates from the LiveCode open source community

News & blog posts

There have been several blogs about the ongoing crowdfunding campaign to fund language-level enhancements to the LiveCode Builder compiler and virtual machine. These changes will make it easier to wrap arbitrary native code libraries using LiveCode Builder, and all of the improvements will go directly into the LiveCode open source project.

At the time of writing, the base funding for the project has been reached, as has the “SQLite library” stretch goal.
