FutureBasic Status and Direction
The FBtoC project was initiated to modernize FutureBasic and its components and build support for the new-in-2007 universal binary format. FBtoC was initially a standalone application and can still be used as such, but is now well integrated with the FutureBasic 5 editor.
The FBtoC team welcomes feedback, and may be contacted by subscribing to FB mailing list and posting with "FBtoC" in the subject line.
- As of 19-April-2012, FutureBasic 5 and FBtoC are being maintained but not actively enhanced. See announcement on FB list
- FB list discussion of "FB and Carbon" and FB's future may be found at the following FB list thread
- N.B. Examples subsequent to that early 2010 list discussion, using FBNS and Objective-C ( via BeginC/EndC ), have demonstrated FB's ability build 64-bit apps.
- All parts of the FutureBasic 4 package are at end-of-life; no bug fixes or enhancements will be made.
