Using DebugEngine stack trace when error occurs:

All what you need to do is to include DebugEngine.HookException unit into your project. And each time an error occurs, you will be able to get the stack trace from the point where the error occurred.

uses

Especially the comments in it are well worth re-reading.

By now a new Delphi version should have been out, so I am curious how the balance between bug fixes and new features was.

Edit: Fixed bugs are features, so in my opinion Embarcadero should release only bug-fix updates and upgrades for at least two years.

Problem with new features is that they usually come with new bugs. Therefore new features take away developer capacity from fixing old bugs twice.
