RAD Studio XE5 - ¿Qué hay de nuevo en el IDE (III)? – Deployment y construcción del APK Esta entrada es una traducción al español del post "RAD Studio XE5 – What’s new in the IDE (III) – Deployment and APK building" escrito por José León en su blog personal. El objetivo de este post es explicar lo que ocurre cuando seleccionamos la opción Run (Ejecutar) en nuestro proyecto Android. Resumiendo, hay dos pasos importantes: Creación y Deployment, y esos pasos se dividen a su vez en otras dos etapas, como Compilación (Compiling), Enlazada (Linking), Empaquetado (Packaging), etc...

New in RAD Studio XE2: Project "Template Libraries" Clearly the biggest new feature of RAD Studio XE2, Delphi XE2 and C++Builder XE2 is FireMonkey: The New Generation Business Application Development Platform. However there are lots of bigger and smaller new features in RAD Studio XE2 that just do not get noticed. One of my favorite new IDE features are "Template Libraries". To be precise it is not completely a new feature. Template Libraries were available in Delphi 2007 and now they are back in XE2. Template Libraries is a very powerful IDE ...
RAD Studio XE2 World Tour: Barcelona, Lisbon, Madrid RAD Studio XE2 World Tour continues!

Want more...Wizards I just got out of the movie theater where I watched "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows part 2".  I won't spoil the movie for any of you who have not seen the movie yet.  What I can say, is the world needs a lot more wizards and a lot less muggles.  There is a Harry Potter Wizarding World at Universal Studios in Orlando Florida.  You can learn to be a wizard and have fun doing it. With all of the troubles around the world, we could use a lot more people to volunteer to help in every way. Ba...
Boian's TBitmap Visualizer and converting to grayscale Debugger Visualizers introduced in RAD Studio 2010, for both Delphi 2010 and C++Builder 2010, are one of the most interesting new IDE features. On the ITDevCon 2009 Delphi conference in Verona I have met Boian Mitov from Mitov Software, who actually wrote a sample "TBitmap" visualizer for Delphi 2010. Boian has architected lots of VCL components for all kinds of signal processing, including advanced video and audio processing implementation. Very cool and sophisticated stuff demonstrating the po...

What happened to version 13? During the RAD Studio 2010 field test and now out in the Delphi non-tech newsgroups, there had been a lot of discussion, speculation and even some angst about the mysterious lack of version 13. Chill folks. The story is simple with no real conspiracies involved. In fact, the only conspiracy involved was that we knew from the outset that it would spark discussion and conspiracies. After each product release there is a period of time where the internal developer builds overlap with the released pr...

The Life and Times of a Thread Pool As promised in this post, I've uploaded a demo project to Code Central. This is an implementation of Conway's Game of Life using a thread pool and a parallel loop. It uses a 500x500 wrapping grid in which only a portion is displayed in the UI. No calculations of the next generation are done in the UI thread in either parallel or serial mode. While the implementation of the life algorithm is interesting, that is not the intent of this demo. The Parallel.pas unit is the main focus of this demo. Th...

Super editor zoom - proof of concept. David Clegg mentions in this post a new super secret, "super zoom" feature.  First of all the reason this "feature" isn't on by default is that it was implemented as a very quick hack to more or less simply be a proof of concept for the team to play with.  As such, it is riddled with problems that if you start using it you may encounter.  It is actually somewhat ironic that this comes up now because for the last couple of days I've been looking at this feature and how it should actually be imple...
