    VMWare Workstation PRO vs MS Hyper-V

    Running multiple VMs on VMWARE Player with no issues on windows. Threadripper 12/24 core/threads, 3 vms running all the time plus main machine, no issues all smooth. Also running on another a xcpng (Free xenserver) with windows/linux servers. VMWare is a good choice in general, their only reason to exist is virtualization, cant go wrong with them.

    If you are using vscode ONLY as an editor then done. Nothing to discuss. Check NotePad++, it does most of what VSCode does without its issues with large loads and its a battle tested editor. If you are using VSCode only for your brand new "something", then it should do just fine. Delphi will do wonders there too. For the rest where code is not perfect, files are not always small and you cant simply pick and chose what battles you will like to engage you may stumble. So if you haven't experienced issues with VSCode that's marvelous and hopefully it will stay that way for your programs. For the rest, there are 5k+ issues reported, a lot of them have workarounds so please look at their Github repository if you do. Cheers.

    Records, Generics and RTTI meets FireDAC

    DataSetEnumerator is great. Certain complex types may cause trouble here and there but it is a default unit on anything I build. Thank you Uwe.

    VSCode is good for editing code, no GUI. Can not handle large files that well, and forget about compiling a sizable project (the ones you hear people here complaining about e.g. 1M+ lines). Gets waaay too many updates. Most of them are patching issues. That is great, but if you have a commercial project you will be always postponing the updates. The magical things that Resharper does with VS, or JetBrains Rider does on the IDE are absent on VS Code or half baked, mainly because its all plugins and it will depend on the community behind that plugin. So as an editor. It is my default, unless i need to open large files, there NotePad++ is still king. Coding IDE, not so much. Rider is one of the best, VS is not bad with Resharper. Delphi's 10.4.1 is one of the best Delphi's but can't compete yet with the other ones. MMX, GExperts, CNWizard help but the integration is not as transparent as the other tools.

    TcheckListBox: Hiding the Values?

    Search Declaration now works flawlessly in 10.4

    CodeRush is leaps and bounds behind Resharper. Rider is the pinnacle of how an IDE should be. Hopefully Delphi's IDE will be on that direction now that the plumbing is in place (LSP, automatic IDE updater).

    Changes in Parallel Library

    Windows -> OTL Cross-platform -> ??? I dont think OTL in cross-platform mode is a possibility in the near short-mid future, so PPL must do for any FMX development. Hopefully they will keep improving it, cause we dont have a choice unless we want to jump into using our own implementations and I dont trust myself with that. 🙂

    Delphi RTL speed up and reliability

    Hi Roberto, Thank you for your efforts. Where did you "released" this library? github? the url provided doesnt have links to the library.

    10.3 vers 10.2 Linux

    Well, to the original posters favor. This is, as you mentioned, a public forum. It is not a payed support line. If he wants to describe his problem and troubleshooting process you are in complete freedom to ignore it if it is irrelevant to you. If you are glued to this forum, have notifications for every post and keep track of its hourly activity that is your doing. "Consume bandwith?" "that means nothing to us?" who is us? is there some payed or volunteered group that has the obligation of responding to posts on this forum? if that is the case then I apologize and it is good to know, otherwise just move on and let the poster go crazy if he wants to.

    I lived in Vietnam and China for a while and "these" people are doing circles around us now. Our lack of understanding of their ways and/or effort to attempt to do it, is part of the reason why the future is on their side.

    Wow interesting. Thank you for the link and thanks to google for offering translations.

    Wow, first time using repeat ... until

    In functions "Exit(Boolean)" is the best. My goto statement to match a "return" on C# and exit quickly on condition.
  13. The next version of the RemObjects SDK will add support for the great Grijjy (https://github.com/grijjy/GrijjyFoundation) foundation classes on their SUPERTCP, SUPERHTTP and HTTP channels! This could imply big perfomance improvements, high output, Google protocol buffers and more. Great news!
