Delphi anonymous method formatting thread going into the direction of functional programming – via: Markus Joos – Google+

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/03

Markus Joos started a nice G+ thread on anonymous method formatting which ended up into a discussion of functional programming and a peek into what Spring4D 1.3 can offer.

Note you might need to be part of the G+ Delphi Developers Community to read the thread.

RAD Studio 2015 Roadmap – Blogs

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/03

Odd that the RAD Studio 2015 Roadmap on the Embarcadero site got published by Brian Alexakis which is relatively unknown in the Delphi community.

I wish that ARC for Windows and Linux x86/x64 were on the list: the first since it makes it so much easier to solve ARC problems in libraries, the second since Kylix had a Linux x86 compiler and an RTL (yes, Kylix didn’t have Unicode nor Generics, but maybe the Linux and OS X targets might be too far apart).

I like that there is a roadmap for 2015. And glad with what is on it: 4K support (hopefully also done for the IDE), C++ LLVM compiler, IDE large memory (though I wonder how they do that), native HTTP (hopefully WinHTTP for SOAP and REST).

In the mean time, Kris Houser has indicated XE8 is in beta. Which is good know as well.

We’re just getting started with SourceTree – via: SourceTree Blog @brwynant

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/03

I am one of the many people complaining about recent SourceTree stability and usability.Issues are not limited to the Windows 1.6.x versions, but since I do most development work on Windows, I wrote Downgrading to SourceTree 1.5.x from 1.6.x, but keeping up with the youngest embedded Git and Mercurial.

This post by Mike Minns (Twitter @brwynant) got my attention: We’re just getting started with SourceTree | SourceTree Blog.

But in order to work with 1.6.x, I’d really love an option to install the 1.6.x versions next to 1.5.x.

Two reasons:

  • It will take time to trust 1.6.x versions again
  • It is a bit cumbersome to do the 1.5.x downgrade

So Mike, if you read is and can make this possible, please get in touch (and if you ever visit the Amsterdam Atlassian office again, lets grab a beer somewhere).
