Small Basic 1.3 (for Microsoft Store) available now!


Small Basic 1.3 is now available to download from the Windows Store! We've got some great new features, including support for three new languages, a new Startup Help page when it loads, and of course, more bug fixes.  If you've already installed it through the Windows Store, your app will update.

NOTES:

  • Small Basic for Windows Store doesn't support Extensions
  • Small Basic 1.3 for Download Center (which does support Extensions) is coming soon

If you haven't installed the Windows Store version, never fear! Simply uninstall the old Small Basic through Control Panel, go get Small Basic on the Windows Store and install it from there.

    WHAT? No Small Basic 1.3 download for previous Windows versions? What a shame.

    1. Yes, we’ll update the Download Center with version 1.3, so that will be coming next. We’ll have another blog post for that, as well as full release notes. Thank you, Win-frown!

    Is this also going to be available as a standalone installer? My first testing indicates the Windows Store install doesn’t allow you to use the command line compiler, or build an extension, or an install an extension.

    1. Yes, we’ll update the Download Center with version 1.3, so that will be coming next. We’ll have another blog post for that, as well as full release notes. Thank you, Philip!

  3. Wow! Congratulations to Small Basic 1.3.

      still waiting 4 ld xtenstion to become standard part of sb…. maybe in v2.0 who knows))

      1. We discussed this with LitDev and the Small Basic Community Council. They’d rather keep it as an extension. I was trying to at least migrate some of the objects into the main library, but it seems the consensus is to keep all the objects on extensions like LD.

        So the focus moved back toward the other efforts, shipping SB 1.3 and SB Online.

    On Windows 7 will not be?

    1. EvPix says:

      Hey people, here I do not exist or should I ignore it?
      Will Windows 7 have Small Basic 1.3?

      1. Yes, we’ll update the Download Center with version 1.3, so that will be coming next. We’ll have another blog post for that, as well as full release notes.

        Thank you, EvPix. Small Basic 1.0 will still be the option for Windows XP and earlier versions. For Windows 7 and newer versions, it will be Small Basic 1.3.

    I have got Small Basic from store, but it couldn’t launch…

    I tried it on Windows 10 Pro & Windows 10 S (JPN/64bit).

    1. Hello, daruyanagi-san.
      Did you get any error message? If so, I think It’s better to ask in Small Basic forum. Thanks. https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?forum=smallbasic

        No error messages, any windows aren’nt shown. Thank you, I’ll ask in forum.

  6. Small Basic 1.3 graduate to visual basic is working great.

    1. Great. Thanks, Roshan!

  7. I added some notes to the blog post (and updated the post title) to clarify that this is the Windows Store release, which doesn’t support Extensions. The Download Center release is in progress (that one supports extensions). Despite some solid efforts to publish the Download Center version first, the Windows Store version shipped much faster.

    Thanks!
