BLDN: December 2015 XE7/XE8 Update Subscription Update got released 20160211 with backported 10 Seattle fixes

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/02/13

Seems they got only released just yesterday because of the QA effort taking a long time. But it’s good news for Delphi/Rad Studio/C++-Builder Update Subscription members: some fixes are now back-ported to 2 Delphi versions. Which is a new milestone in support from Embarcadero.

Anyway: BLDN.

Note that the list of fixes is at the bottom of these pages:

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/02/11

Thanks Oliver for sumarising this: Translation Memory Tools Tried and Found Wanting – Oli’s Blog

Fix for Visual Studio – Resharper Alt Enter not working – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/02/10

Thanks User Josh Close – Stack Overflow. for answering the below on Stack Overflow: it got my Resharper Alt-Enter key workign again.

Re-apply Visual Studio keyboard scheme:

  • (VS2013 latest ReSharper)
    • ReSharper > Options > Environment > Keyboard & Menus > ReSharper Platform keyboard scheme: Visual Studio > Apply Scheme > Save.
    • This will reset the shortcut keys for ReSharper.
  • (older versions)
    • ReSharper > Options > Environment > General > Visual Studio Integration > Apply
