Delphi XE2 Update 1 is out; be sure to get it.

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/09/28

I’m at the BASTA.NET conference, so I need to keep this short:

Be sure to get Delphi XE2 Update 1 and read the release notes. You will need it in order to apply future updates, which will come soon and often: a big change when compared to previous product releases.

You will need do a full uninstall/install cycle, which will take a while.

On the Mac, you will also need to uninstall/install the Delphi XE 2 FireMonkey iOS support package as well.

It is worth it: tons of bug fixes, and an importent fix to comply with licensing (the first XE2 version had a license issue with the GLScene: if you have 3D apps, then Installing Update 1 and rebuilding your source will ensure that your applications have a valid redistributable license).

Bug fixes (over 120!) are in these areas:

  • FireMonkey design-time and run-time fixes
  • New VCL Styles
  • VCL Styles design-time and run-time fixes
  • IDE fixes to improve stability
  • C++ and Delphi compiler fixes

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/09/28

I forgot to blog on this while prepping for Delphi Tage and DelphiLive, so here it goes (BLTN, no, not that movie):

We now have a pre-release of GExperts 1.35 available for download that supports RAD Studio XE2.  We especially appreciate your help testing FireMonkey and 64-bit compatibility, support for unit scope prefixes, etc.
