Posted by on in Tutorial

It is a fairly interesting time to see Microsoft promote RAD Studio Berlin Update 2 support for the "Centennial" bridge, as the only IDE providing this capability out of the box.

First, Microsoft Windows Developer account tweeted about it at (see below):

Second, RAD Studio has been mentioned in the blog post "Conversion options for bringing your existing desktop app to the Universal Windows Platform using the Desktop Bridge" at, Towards the middle of the long post you can read:

"Additionally, Embarcadero has announced support for the Desktop Bridge in RAD Studio, which lets you directly output a Windows app package through the build process."

    community pages show exclamation point at lock icon on address bar with Firefox - saying connection is now secure when using https://... url
    says part of page not secure [e.g. images may be using http:// url] - you can try using //someimage.jpg instead of hardcoded http://someimage.jpg I think in pages to mean use the same protocol as the page. Or else redirect all http to https and fix pages to only use https in images etc.
