  • OkHttp updated.
  • #JavaCompilerPath attribute. Allows setting a JDK other than the one set in the global settings. Syntax: <java version>, <path to javac.exe>. The exact version isn't important.

  • Many internal libraries were updated including: B4XDrawer, B4XPages, B4XCollections, XUI Views and jFX.

Resumable subs indicators:

The first indicator shows that RefreshImpl is a resumable sub and it is called without waiting for it to complete.
The second indicator shows us where the sub will be paused and later resumed.

In the b4xlib manifest.txt file it works.

B4X:
Version=6.5
Author=Klaus CHRISTL (klaus)
B4J.DependsOn=jXUI, jBitmapCreator
B4A.DependsOn=XUI, BitmapCreator
B4i.DependsOn=iXUI, iBitmapCreator
IDE Comment=New version 6.50

And the result:

It is not obvious in your posts #21 and 22.
The comment in post#22 shows "The best library out there!"
But I don't see this text in post#21.

Note that the version of your xChart is shown as 6.40
Was already changed before your post :).

I had written the comment in the wrong place, in the XML, but I didn't want to correct that post or reply, so I just published the image of that unreal library :)

As I reported in my post #15 about the WYSIWYG Editor Preview window not showing, I noticed is working for ONLY java 8. The problem is only with java 11 and 14
Thanks.
This can be a nice workaround for testing purposes while we wait for the next Beta/Stable B4J version, as @Erel mentioned before.

Be careful, if you leave an empty character after the equal sign it doesn't work:
IDE Comment=New version 6.50 >works
IDE Comment =New version 6.50 > doesn't work

It was my mistake. I didn't realize that in order for all the features to appear I had to select the library.

It works properly. It is a nice innovation. Thanks
