    I'm happy to release B4J v5.50: https://www.b4x.com/b4j.html
    This version adds support for resumable subs (Wait For / Sleep): https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/posts/498072/
    This is the most important language improvement since the addition of classes in B4A v2.0.

    Resumable subs make it much simpler to handle asynchronous tasks.

    Additional improvements:
    - Debugger improvements.
    - Node_AnimationCompleted event.

    Example:
    Code:
    Sub btn_Action
       
    Dim b As Button = Sender
       
    For i = 10 To 0 Step - 1
         b.Text = i
         Sleep(
    100)
       
    Next
       b.Text = 
    "Takeoff!"
    End Sub

    V5.51 was released. It fixes a bug with resumable subs and try / catch blocks and an issue with Spinner control.

    Hi,
    What should I do to receive the email for new software-baj releases?
    Thanks you

    (Italian: cosa devo fare per ricevere una email quando ci sono dei nuovi rilasci?)

    I didn't get an e-mail either, as B4J is for free, you just need to download it.

    Thank you for this release, some really cool things recently. So cool that I will rewrite lots of code with the new features!

    Could we be notified by email of new releases? Or could there be a "new releases" thread that we could follow ?

    if you "reply" in that thread, you can then subscribe during your reply!
    (although I just subscribed to the thread with needing to reply, nor being confronted with a "thread too old" warning)
