IDE Fix Pack 6.4 for Delphi 2009,XE-10.2 Tokyo and 6.4.1 for Delphi 2010 and 10.3 Rio

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/12

On my list of things to install soon IDE Fix Pack 6.4 and 6.4.1:

Technically, there is 6.4 that works in Delphi 10.3 Rio Update 1, but it is better to install 6.4.1 as it works with 10.3 and 10.3.1:

The dependencies file looks interesting for good uses list optimisation, given that you compile with all conditional define permutations:

There is a ton of changes, of which I like the bold ones most:

6.4

  • Fixed: Packages with duplicate units may not have caused a fatal compiler error.
  • Added: Support for Delphi 10.3 Rio
  • Added: StyleUtils.inc performance optimizations for faster UI rendering (D10.3)

  • Added: Fix for TStringList.IndexOfName bug (RSP-21633)
  • Added: Fix for access violation in the Welcomepage JScript9.dll binding
