The comments show some nice links to comparison overviews of hashing algorithms.

RAD Studio 10 next stop: Berlin (via: The inheritance tree of all Fire Monkey objects) but would you really trust it?

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/03/22

Apart from the very interesting poster: the next stop is RAD Studio 10.1 Berlin Version 24.0.22718.6766.

Apparently, I missed the previous RAD Studio 101. Berlin rumour and Tim Anderson mentioning Berlin in New Delphi and C++ Builder Roadmap promises Linux server support « Tim Anderson’s ITWriting as in the Delphi roadmap for 2016 it’s still called BigBen.

The docwiki start page is there, just not open for the public yet: http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/Berlin/en/Main_Page. Like right before Delphi 10 Seattle, it’s only available for writer, l10n, RADBeta, ConnectBeta, Employee.

Similarly, https://sourceforge.net/p/radstudiodemos/code/HEAD/tree/branches/RADStudio_Berlin/ is not there: it was added 20160311.

Still the TLS issues have not been solved, so the very bad SSLLabs rating of F stays stays the same as at before the start the 10 Seattle era.

Also apart from some comments, there still is no central official statement of the recent web-site breaches.

I’m not sure what an eminent new Delphi version can be of use when you can’t be sure your account data is secure and the product download is valid (i.e. not tampered with).

In other words: would you really trust a new Delphi version? I won’t yet, at least not for now.

NHibernate, LINQ, Oracle and the placement of Take: avoid “Specified method is not supported.”

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/03/22

Even though as of 12c R1, Oracle supports a row limiting clause, NHibernate 4.2 with Oracle.DataAccess.dll 2.112.3.0 does not support that.

When you let it generate the SQL for a LINQ Take call to limit the number of results, you get an exception like this (full exception and stack trace are below):

System.NotSupportedException was unhandled by user code
  HResult=-2146233067
  Message=Specified method is not supported.

The place where you Take is important, as this does fail:
