RAD Studio 12.1 Athens has been released

Embarcadero is very excited to announce the release of RAD Studio 12.1 Athens along with Delphi 12.1 and C++Builder 12.1.

RAD Studio 12.1 Athens release primarily focuses on enhancing the new features in RAD Studio 12, adding further refinements and addressing customer requests. At the same time, we have completed the development of the new C++ Win64 Clang–based compiler and toolchain, which was initially released in 12.0.

C++ and Visual Assist in RAD Studio 12.0

Embarcadero recently released a new blog post by David Millington about Visual Assist in the upcoming C++Builder 12.0 release.

Back in August, we gave a preview webinar of what is being worked on internally for C++, covering a preview of the updated Clang compiler, and our initial integration of Visual Assist.

The thing is, we held out a little. The preview was quite conservative. We didn’t share everything. In fact, we only shared about a third of what we’re shipping for Visual Assist.

Delphi Language: Modernizing String Literals

Marco Cantu has posted a blog article about a couple of new features that are coming in Delphi 12.0: Long String Literals, and Multi-line String Literals!

The 12.0 version of Delphi (and RAD Studio) introduces a very significant set of changes to the way the Delphi compiler handles string literals… With the coming release, it will be possible to have string literals longer than 255 characters… Delphi 12 will add support for multiline strings. In this case, you have to adopt a different syntax…

Behind the Build: RAD Studio and C++Builder 12.0

Embarcadero recently released a new video by David Millington on YouTube about the upcoming RADStudio/C++Builder 12.0 release.

C++Builder 12 brings some massive improvements. We’d like to give you a look behind the scenes and a preview of what’s coming. Expect to see in-development tech, an exciting, unfiltered, behind-the-scenes look at what’s coming soon in two major areas: the new Clang toolchain, with massive improvements across the RTL, STL, linker, debugger, and more; and the Visual Assist integration, providing navigation, search, and refactoring for C++.

I’m an Embarcadero MVP!

I am now officially a new Embarcadero MVP!

To be honest, I have been offered this role before, but I turned it down at the time. Being a (now legacy) member of TeamB, Borland’s version of an MVP program, carried enough perks to last me awhile. But now, I can happily say that I finally accept this offer, so cheers to Embarcadero!

So, I guess I’ll have to start using this blog for something meaningful, like reporting news and tips and stuff about Delphi and C++Builder. And keeping up with my social medias. Oh, and finally upgrading my Windows PC so I can install the latest RAD Studio. 🙂

I’ve created a new category in this blog for all future Embarcadero-related posts going forward.

Happy blogging ahead!
