    ANN: Native X.509, RSA and HSM Support for mORMot

    Wow - this seems awesome!

    GRPC Client

    Not much info but FWIW, here's someone attempting it using Grijjy (https://github.com/grijjy/DelphiScalableClientSockets) https://stackoverflow.com/questions/53977759/google-speech-api-grpc-sync-request-processes-first-words-only

    Gitlab-ci & MSBUILD & Library path

    If you run that build manually, does it work? Is your CI work being done on a machine that Delphi was installed on? (Or are files just copied to a build server?)

    SonarDelphi v1.0.0 released!

    There are a few major reasons: - Peganza is the number one expert at static code analysis of Delphi code. They have been doing it for over 20 years now. - FixInsight just cannot match Pascal Expert's (PEX) depth of coverage. Compare the number of flags for each and you'll find a very large difference. - FixInsight is part of Peganza's main toolset and is very actively maintained. Simply compare PEX version history: https://peganza.com/history_pex.html to FixInisight: https://www.tmssoftware.com/site/fixinsight.asp?s=history - PEX is $89 and FixInsight is about $115. If you want to dig deeper, get Peganza's free "Pascal Analyzer Lite" product. And if you want the widest available static source analysis of your Delphi code, get Peganza's "Pascal Analyzer" product as it has more info that you'd probably ever actually fully utilize. The one downside for the PEX vs Fix Insight comparison is a command line option, which is available in the more expensive "Fix Insight Pro" product but not in Pascal Expert. However, it is available in Pascal Analyzer so if that's a requirement then I'd get Pascal Analyzer + Pascal Expert in their bundled offering. I had an All-Access subscription to TMS for the last few years I have used both products and while they are both nice tools, Pascal Expert just seems to be a very large step ahead of Fix Insight in all ways except the command-line option (but I also have Pascal Analyzer so it wasn't an issue for me.) But, they had a huge head-start as they are using the 20+ year old heavily improved/tweaked Pascal Analyzer engine to generate their warnings. In my opinion, every Delphi developer should use the stand alone and command-line driven "Pascal Analyzer" tool in their development process. In addition, to help reduce introducing new issues, everyone should utilize either of these IDE plugin: Pascal Expert or Fix Insight. I would also highly suggest purchasing the All Access subscription from TMS as they are probably the number one component developer for Delphi and they have been pushing out an enormous amount of updates for all their products (seemingly excluding Fix Insight but I assume that is because it was a purchased product.) The amount of code you get from their All Access subscription is amazing. While other component developers have went idle or closed, TMS seems to have hit the accelerator lately. For a little more info, here's my review of Pascal Expert https://ideasawakened.com/post/product-review-pascal-expert

    Delphi 12 is available

    For myself, if I use that new feature it will only be used spargingly because, as usual, new language features break tooling. Here are a few QP issues added on multi-line strings: RSP-43420 multiline string literal class const breaks syncing between IDE form designer and editor RSP-43408 Multiline string literal containing reserved word breaks down navigation RSP-43380 Multiline string literals breaks code formatter Given that the inline vars feature was added 5 years ago and the IDE tooling still doesn't fully support it... you really have to wonder when the tooling will properly handle multi-line strings.

    SonarDelphi v1.0.0 released!

    Peganza's tools are much better than Fix Inisight. You can start with their Expert but expand into their Pascal Analyzer product which is very in-depth.

    Delphi 12 is available

    Well, this is actually Delphi major version number 29. But if you use Compiler or RTL versions, then its number 36. Delphi 2009 was actually the 12th release so this new Delphi 12 is a 14-year late-comer. Instead of just skipping Delphi 13 to go to Delphi 14, let's go directly to Delphi 37 and sync all the versions for a brief moment in time until some marketing guy wants to switch to MPDS 1.0 (Multi-Platform Dev Studio) or other such thing.

    Very nice!

    Quality portal access gone for me ?

    It's finally back online for me.
  10. That same DocWiki page stated "The default linkage mode is static with SQLite version 3.31.1 with FDE." so I would assume it would be backwards compatible.

    Delphi 12 is available

    After switching to major versions at 11, we now have 12 but will they skip 13 or not?

    Code formatting in Delphi 12

    Correct It doesn't work well with new language features and there's no desire to put any effort into the old DotNet based implementation. They have yet to announce when a replacement will be available.

    String literals more then 255 chars

    Yes, I was referring to IDE, not 3rd party components. 3rd party parsing of Delphi code may be improved with an official language definition perhaps.
  14. Darian Miller

    String literals more then 255 chars

    I don't buy that it is 'always the case'. The way to avoid that is to develop the IDE support with the new language feature at the same time so they are released at the same time. The IDE is obviously there to assist the user with the language - if the language outpaces the IDE, then the user cannot properly utilize the IDE. It is a self-defeating scenario. And when the IDE support is many years behind language features it also becomes a real credibility problem. There can be some excuse to release experimental language features without full IDE support - but the gap between language feature release and IDE support should not be measured in 5 to 10 year spans (unless it is a special/edge case that hardly anyone utilizes.)

    Profiler for Delphi

    Profilers measure application execution. Two main types are Sampling and Instrumenting profilers. You run the application and the profiler measures times for code to complete. It sounds like what you want is some sort of AI to read/parse your code and suggest improvements. You could try feeding pieces to ChatGPT and see how well that performs... Or, perhaps you want a static code analyzer, like Pascal Analyzer from Peganza....https://www.peganza.com/products_pal.html it will parse your code and provide reports of things that could be improved. (They offer a free, limited feature version to try....Pascal Analyzer Lite: https://www.peganza.com/download.html)
