Gambas 3.12.0 is here!

WARNING: - Ubuntu 14.04, Mint 17 or any other derivative of 14.04 and using the ppa may cause you to loose Gambas. I have put in a help request on the mailing list on this. I have not tested Mint 18 (Ubuntu 16.04) but Mint 19 (Ubuntu 18.04) updates with the ppa without problems.
(I am advised that this problem is now fixed - 01/01/19)

I have tested the new JIT with the old Benchmark, on my computer, which produces the following: -

Without Fast 48.04 secs
With Fast 4.13 secs
With Fast Unsafe 2.37 secs

You can now do this, if you want to: -
(For some reason the Gambas tags screw up the output of this code)

Code: Select all

Public Sub Form_Open()

Print "Hello world"

Dim sString As String = "Gambas 3.12.0"

Print sString[0, 6]
Print sString[7, 6]

For i As Integer = 0 To Len(sString)
  Print Space(i) & sString[i]
Next

End
The result is: -

Code: Select all
