    Delphi or Lazarus/Free Pascal

    I can imagine a version of an IDE aimed at hobbyists that includes the Delphi ARM Linux compiler, Python 4 Delphi, FMX only, local database support for <=$99. I hope that EMB get more creative in going after markets that are there without the fear of reducing existing sales. In and of itself the ARM Linux compiler is really important perhaps not attracting a high unit price but creating value for the rest of the product range. In addition making it possible to think about low priced and targeted SKUs.

    Over 10 months later, did you manage to spend time on your own projects and have some fun?

    Hextor - Hexadecimal editor and binary data analyzing toolkit

    Useful information, but its not the same as Hextor available as open source.
  4. Dont give up on better code :-). Migrate the name and method signature slowly to something better. Use the Deprecated key word and introduce the replacement.

    Do you need an ARM64 compiler for Windows?

    David Millington works in Eastonia. https://muckrack.com/david-millington So I guess the C++Builder development team has an office in that location.

    It's frustrating, I have been looking for a published roadmap too. @Lars FosdalPerhaps, you could open a Non-Technical forum where we as members can speculate wildly and stir up general dissent.

    Frequent and/or annoying typos you make while coding

    "search" --> "serach" quite often

    Forum for Spring4D

    @Stefan GlienkeOn the BitBucket repo 4 days ago you tagged for download version 2.0.beta.1. Version 2.0 was at alpha.2 8 months ago. Is this a significant release and should I start to prefer this over 1.2.4 if I dont mind some risks? Are the sub-set of collections solid, unchanged and represent low risk usage? Obviously there is the word 'beta' in the tag so clearly there is still a way to go.

I was part of a small team than wrote accounting software for our UK and international customers. All the prices, totals, decimal quantities, fractional quantities were represented as integers or long integers. The long integers having 15 digits of significance; not a floating point number in sight. All decimal places and fractial separators were implicit until it came to displaying them. No rounding errors crept in. I remember this as an example of a good design choice by the lead developer.

    Delphi for ARM

    But this is not using a native ARM compiler.

    D11 - A bridge too far.. :-(

    or open source the IDE + everything, apart from compilers. Have a licenses that protects EMB investment but allows Pull Requests and co-development with community

    What is part of your contiuos integration?

    I have used it with a number of clients to good effect; highly recommended.

    Thats sounds miserable and demoralising. I have seen some of that, but not much.
