    Different core file dates in 10.3.2

    It was a question by Tom concerning the potential mix of the WebInstaller using already a newer built than the initial 10.3.2. Until now I never noticed any time stamps in installed software that was AFTER the shipment of the software release.

    What is the compiler switch -VN used for?

    @Uwe: thank you, that helped the dcc command line help is really not complete -V = Debug information in EXE -VR = Generate remote debug (RSM) -VT = Debug information in TDS -VN = TDS symbols in namespace -> that is probably wrong or misleading but the help link you sent explains it! -V Generate debug info in the .exe file -VN Generate debug info with namespace or unit scope name -VR Generate debug info in .rsm file (for Delphi, set by the Include remote debug symbols option on the Project > Options > Delphi Compiler > Linking page) -VT Generate debug info in .tds file (for C++, set by the Place debug information in separate TDS file option on the Project > Options > Delphi Compiler > Linking page) The -VN option does not specify where the debug information is generated. For example, to generate debug information in the .exe file and to include the namespace or unit scope information, you need to specify two options in your DCC32 command, as follows ...

    What is the compiler switch -VN used for?

    When I create a default CMD Line Project under RIO I get the following feedback under the IDE (message window of the compile) "Configuration Debug" ... -V -VN -NBC:\Compiler\DX26\Projects\Bpl ... "Configuration Release" ... -NBC:\Compiler\DX26\Projects\Bpl ... "Configuration Debug and external TDS enabled (-VT switch)" ... -V -VN -VT -VN -NBC:\Compiler\DX26\Projects\Bpl ... (doubled?!?) Background: Tom Mueller and I work together in the same environment and we got problems with TestComplete and this missing "magic" -VN when using our command line dcc32 build scripts. Took use days to find this missing switch but we are still not sure what -VN exactly means and who/what influences it's appearance.

    AV on finalizing TThreadPool [PPL]

    Looks as A. https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-16932 Parallel ITasks do not start as expected (solved in 10.3) has caused (based on the feedback of EMBT) B. https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-23466 Slow Multi-Thread Code Generation but C. https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-23874 AV on finalizing TThreadPool was introduced independently somewhere between 10.0 and 10.3 We really hope the Embarcadero does try to cleanup this issues soon (10.3.2)

    AV on finalizing TThreadPool [PPL]

    @Alexander: I would suggest to use the attached threading.pas (see RSP-23466) to quickly crosscheck if 10.3.x has introduced that problem (as the other ones mentioned in RSP-23466)

    IDE Fix pack for Rio

    Thank you Andy. Just wanted to mention that https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-21972 is solved by the FixPack (BETA). The IDE behavior under Rio is now as it was with 10.2 + FixPack.

    Service Pack for RIO scheduled when?

    Hi has anybody seen an info on the release of a service pack 1 for RIO. Some issues raised in https://quality.embarcadero.com are really nasty and should be corrected ASAP. (just as an example https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-21633, https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-23216) I am pretty sure that Marco has already a "shortlist" of what is in the SP1 and a rough date when it will ship. While I can accept that new releases are "shipped when ready" a product under SA (software assurance) should have a clear service pack strategy communicated to the customers.

    IDE Fix pack for Rio

    In our environment the missing "TDirectoryCache" of the FixPack seems to be the main blocker. We have reported this issues already middle of Sept (https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-21972, https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-22289). It was reproduced by EMBT but nothing happened until now. IMO a fixpack with only this feature would improve the speed already a lot for larger projects and solves the problem of the IDE freezes we do have. I asked EMBT several times to include such a cache into the SP1 of RIO. But no commitment yet.

    Unresponsive IDE and massive memory leaks with RIO

    We have reported similar issues already middle of Sept https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-21972 https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-22289 it's reproduced by EMBT but nothing happened until now. The fact is that EMBT just has not included the TDirectoryCache of the fixpack. This is a show stopper on our side as the IDE fully blocks during the work.
