  1. Marco showed a preview of some of what's new in Delphi 11 yesterday - you can read his blog with screenshots, or watch the video replay, here. I'm also giving a talk today on Usability and Design, in general but also referring to the IDE and some decisions we made there. If you've ever wanted to see an internal mockup of things we did not do, this is the one to watch -- but also, I hope the talk in general will be helpful for anyone who wants to have good design in their app. Join this or the other (really good!) talks today and tomorrow here!

    Remote desktop friendly

    We were thinking of writing a blog post about it, I'll ping the person who was looking at doing so. For more detail I'll need to ask our engineers. My level of oversight here was to ask we fix RD bugs, I did not dig into the details of what changes we made or why.
  3. Looks like something unintentional, we'd certainly want to fix. Can you file a QP with a sample project please (to be sure we see exactly what you see) and email me the QP number? david.millington@embarcadero.com. Thankyou!

    ANN: Parnassus Parallel Debugger

    That is the right place. Thanks! Those errors are in the debugger itself, not the Parallel Debugger plugin... but the plugin stresses / uses the debugger a lot more than the IDE does, so it's more likely to find issues when they exist 😞 Sorry about that. Please file bugs with debugger logs turned on, so we can solve them: http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/Sydney/en/Enabling_logging_for_the_RAD_Studio_debuggers

    Does C++ Builder have code completion?

    C++Builder 10.4.2 improves this a lot. It's not perfect, but much improved. Please try it out.

    ANN: Parnassus Parallel Debugger

    No idea! Installation there are part of GetIt. The plugin installs several DLLs, and that one is a shared DLL also used by Bookmarks and Navigator. Do you have either of those installed? If it persists I'd contact Support.

    Yes - always happy to get an email 🙂 Our email addresses are in the format firstname dot lastname, ie mine is david dot millington at embarcadero.com.

    Does C++ Builder have code completion?

    I know right now code completion is, let's say, not ideal. We hope this will be much better in 10.4.2 - lots of work going into it in this release. You can see this noted on our recent roadmap: https://blogs.embarcadero.com/rad-studio-november-2020-roadmap-pm-commentary/

    Welcome, users of C++Builder

    Thankyou for adding this! I do know of C++ customers who lurk here, semi-anonymously since it's always been for Delphi. I hope we'll see some uptake here now there's an official C++ area. I appreciate you making it, thankyou. Atilla, I'm sorry to see you want to hide it. I hope seeing the sister language / second part f RAD Studio won't bother you or others too much. At Emb, we try to emphasise the benefits of integration (eg, getting access to C++ libraries from Delphi, or math performance, or similar.) I personally feel (from observation) there are many Delphi users who would find a little C++ in their apps a benefit.
  10. We're looking into it, but without being able to repro in-house (yet) I can't guarantee a fix in 10.3.2.
  11. And for the past-versions thing, Uwe had good steps. Please see https://community.idera.com/developer-tools/b/blog/posts/troubleshooting-installing-bookmarks-and-navigator-in-10-3-rio-as-well-as-earlier-versions for a full writeup.
  12. We've seen the same error for other plugins too. So far we haven't tracked it down. Do you get a call stack?

    ABI Changes in RAD Studio 10.3

    4 bytes does fit into a register in both and is okay. It is params of 5, 6, 7, and 8 bytes in size that prompted this work: that is, params that may or may not fit into a register depending on if the register is 4 bytes or 8 bytes in size. I updated to make that clearer. Glad you find it interesting! For VC compatibility: for cdecl and stdcall, possibly. We had a very comprehensive review of all calling conventions on all platforms. Other compatibility areas with VC can be very different areas, things like object file format or RTL or...
  14. We made some changes to the low-level method call ABI in 10.3, which affects both Delphi and C++. This is likely to be invisible to you unless you do something very low-level. It's more visible to you if you use C++, because now an entire class of bugs has been fixed in one go. IMO, whether you use C++ or not, it's very interesting!

    Unresponsive IDE and massive memory leaks with RIO

    Hi @swierzbicki, Did you install with the ISO installer, or the GetIt installer? I'm not certain from the name "swierzbicki" who's behind the account :) Were you on the beta and did you install any beta builds on this same machine? Cheers, David
