Update 4 hot-fix coming right up Last week, we released Update 4 for XE2 and I am very proud of the team for delivering 100s of fixes and optimizations (nay, over 1000) through these last 4 updates. As you have seen, we've put a particular focus on FireMonkey and as you might appreciate the support matrix of target hardware varies widely - especially across Windows and particularly various versions of Windows rendering libraries (DirectX, Direct2d, GDI+). As a result, we have heard of a few FireMonkey rendering issues since the...

An update on XE2 updates We've been really busy these last few months releasing updates to XE2 as we had discussed during the release. Last week we shipped Update 2 and yesterday a hot-fix for C++ developers targeting MacOS X Lion, so I thought I would take a moment to discuss our update strategy in a bit more detail. We are aggressively trying to update at the end of each month and have so far met that schedule. These updates have included not only FireMonkey fixes but also other product fixes. Of note however, on t...

May the road(map) rise with you These last few weeks we have had Embarcaderians out on the road talking about RAD Studio XE2 and FireMonkey. The reception and excitement around FireMonkey, in particular, has been infectious. Even though there is plenty there to learn about and play with we've been asked regularly about our roadmap. Our official roadmap is being updated, and not ready to be published yet, but I thought I would share, at a high-level, some of the technology areas in which we are actively working. Frequ...
