Remarkably few people note the actual version number of the Delphi releases, though that is the version mentioned in any QC reports.
Now that Delphi Insider: Download links for Delphi XE7, C++Builder XE7 and RAD Studio XE7 are there, the ftpd and altd have been seeded a few days ago with the version time stamped at the end of last month, here is the version number:
QC version number for Delphi XE7: 21.0.17017.3725 (Update 1 has version 21.0.17707.5020).
I got that number from the first XE7 report in QC posted almost 2 months ago (and verified it against other reports), so it seems XE7 has undergone some serious testing.
Before installing, note that in addition to the below documentation links:
Be sure to have at least 60 gigabytes of free disk space before you attempt to install.
This in addition to the 5 gigabyte ISO file (:
