For some time now, there has been lots of QuiteBASIC activity from Colombia. I can see that folks are really creating their own programs and running them. This is great! If you are one of those Colombians, feel free to to leave a comment here and tell everyone what you are up to!

New debugging stuff!
Today I improved debugging a bit.
First, when you step through a program, QuiteBASIC will scroll the program text so that the current line is visible and it will highlight the line number so it is easy to see.
Second, I added a new button "go to cursor". To use it, place the cursor somewhere in your program where you want to stop execution and the click the button. QuiteBASIC will run normally until it reaches the line with the cursor.

Something is up in Ardmore, Oklahoma
The last two weeks, the traffic has increased a lot from this town. Not weekends though, only weekdays. Citizens of Ardmore, welcome to QuiteBASIC!

IE9 and Chrome are neck-and-neck!
But today I installed IE9 RC and it is fast!
Chrome 9 and IE9 are actually virtually neck-and-neck in terms of speed on all projects I tried with IE9 just a tiny bit faster.
The Brute force solution for the Eight Queens problem runs in 6 seconds in both bowsers.
The Bifurcations Math project runs in 6 seconds on IE9 and 7 seconds on Chrome.
And the picture below shows how far the Mandelbrot program got in one minute -- slightly longer (that means faster) on IE9.
In the picture it is also easy to appreciate the compact chrome of IE9. It takes much less screen real-estate than Chrome.

Starting 2011 with a UI Refresh
It has been quiet here for a while, but today QuiteBASIC gets its first major UI refresh since it was launched back in 2006!
The new UI is more compact and is designed to make it easier to work on writing programs. Under the hood are also some exciting changes that lay the foundation for new features that will roll out later this year...
There are also some bug-fixes and full support for Chrome which didn't exist in 2006!
