I think Andrew is right. Same for me. I just renewed my subscription but if things continue to go this way, it's the last time. I have been waiting fro almost 5 months to eventually have NexusDB 3rd party added to GetIt (it was passed to Embarcadero

To me the most important thing would be to focus on releasing fixes within a week of a new version of Xcode and releasing all 3rd party tools in your hands when available. I am under subscription but I'm still stuck with Berlin because Tokyo can't cr

Steve J Doing More with C++ 4 months ago

How do we attend? No link, no mail, nothing...

Hi Jim, I subscribed to the More C++ event, but didn't get anything. How do you attend those webinars??? I missed it and don't want to miss the one... Show more

Good. But you should focus on something that is more and more asked by Apple: Watch support. This becomes a requirement to put iOS apps to the front store. iOS should be more supported. When Apple releases a new SDK version (Xcode), Embarcadero shoul

Does this finally let us use Xcode 8.3.1 and 8.3.2? It has been 6 weeks that we wait for a fix...

Hum... where is it? Any link?

If you install 10.1 and 10.2 in separate directories they are totally independent. You can uninstall 10.1 and that will not affect 10.2. Even in the registry everything is separated.

As far as I know, the other products, like Xamarin also require a real macOS machine.
As for them too, you need to package the end product via Xcode, otherwise it will be rejected from the AppStore, as well as a direct install into your iOS device.That's the only way to push your app into your Apple Device.
You can't escape Xcode in the background.

Cross platform other than macOS and iOS does not need a Mac. You can produce Linux (with the Enterprise edition) and Win32, Win64 as well as Android, right under Windows.
The Mac is only required for Apple platforms.
The licence doesn't allow you to run macOS in a virtual machine on a platform different than a Mac. You are not allowed to do it in Windows. You can create Mac virtual machines on the Mac though.
At some point Embarcadero had a deal with macincloud.com where you can "rent" a Mac and install Xcode on it and address it for development. That may suit your requirements.

Yes it's possible but I would not do it for license violation and perds.The reason why you need a Mac is because the code generated by Delphi/C++Builder has to go through the entire Apple Xcode chain for signatures, provisioning, etc... otherwise you app would not be allowed to be ran on iOS/macOS and even less be submitted to the AppStore.
It is a requirement from Apple to package the entire app through Xcode. RAD Studio handles everything for you, but you still need it.
