RAD Studio, C++Builder and Delphi 10.1 Berlin Update 2 Anniversary Edition helps you to Code Faster and Reach Further. You still write your code once, but now you code faster and reach every store: Android, iOS, macOS and Windows 10. Not only does update 2 include many bug fixes, but it also includes new features, all in a non-breaking release.

 

 

Reach a wider audience with your software!

New in Berlin Update 2 Anniversary Edition is support for building Appx packages for distribution in the Windows 10 Store. Windows Desktop Bridge Deployment Support allows you to package new and existing desktop applications ready for the Windows 10 Store directly from your IDE using Microsoft's Desktop Bridge. Target hundreds of millions of Windows 10 devices with your existing VCL or FMX code base. Same code, new customers!

With Microsoft Windows Store now alongside macOS, Android and iOS store support, you can now reach billions of users from a single cross-platform app codebase!
