Embarcadero Highlights

Lollipop Hotfix (Beta) for Delphi and C++ Builder XE7

Embarcadero has released a hotfix for RAD XE7 to update the Java JNI bridge support for Android 5. Specifically the issues relate to the exchange of array data between the C++/Delphi side and the Java side, as part of a technology called "JNI bridge". 



Appmethod Beta hotfix for FireMonkey apps on Android 5.0 (Lollipop)

This hot fix addresses an issue with FireMonkey applications on devices running Android 5.0 (Lollipop). The issue prevented array data from being properly exchanged between native code and the Android Java API. The most noticeable symptom of this issue was that images stored on FireMonkey forms would not be displayed on devices running Android 5 and could cause applications to terminate unexpectedly.
