Hotfix 1 for RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder XE6

A few missing files from the RAD Studio XE6 release, plus a couple of critical issues fixed. A larger update will follow, but these were important to fix in a timely matter.

A few missing files from the RAD Studio XE6 release, plus a couple of critical issues fixed. The fix is available for registered users at  cc.embarcadero.com/Item/29847 .

Which issues does this address, and do you need it? It fixes an IME (Input Method) issues under iOS related with Asian languages (so you don't need this for European languages), some missing header files related with tethering and DXB but specific to C++, missing release version of some REST library files (affecting all), and updates to some VCL themes. I'd say this is likely not a hotfix required by all developers, but for the time it takes to download (65MB) and apply it, it is probably worth to get it even if you haven't experienced the issues above.

A larger update will follow in due time, but these were important to fix in a timely matter because some customers are affected in a significant way.

Hotfix 1 for RAD Studio, Delphi, CBuilder XE6 

 When I try and download it says I'm not authorised. 
It's not listed on my authorised downloads page, 
though the original ISO for XE6 is, and hotfixes for 
earlier versions.

Small nit pick in the instructions.  They tell us to
put the zip file in the following folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\RAD Studio\14.0\ 

After XE5, Embarcadero installs into the "Studio" folder: 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Embarcadero\Studio\14.0\

it seems there is a permission issue with the download. I guess all XE6 
customers should be able to get it. But maybe a separate download it 
coming for the separate SKUs. I'm traveling so I couldn't check sooner.

 I have a custom package (design + runtime) that 
compiles in XE5 (both win32 and Android). The package 
uses rest services and compiles in XE6 for win32 but not 
for android platform (E2202 Required package 'soaprtl' 
not found). The RESTComponents package in XE6 has the 
soaprtl dependency (not in XE5) but this package does 
not exist for android. I need a solution because cannot 
migrate my projects in XE6. Tks.

Hello,

I'm especially interested in the Vcl.SysStyles.pas & 
Vcl.Themes.pas fixes. 
But the Hotfix is only replacing those files, wich 
actually accomplishing nothing. 
What about rebuilding the DCU files (e.g. 
<RAD14>\lib\win32\release, <RAD14>\lib\win32\debug, 
<RAD14>\lib\win64\release, <RAD14>\lib\win64\debug), and 
what if you build your application with packages? 
Those need to be rebuild as well.

Thanks for your feedback.

"A larger update will follow in due time"  ... it's
been since Apr 26, approaching 2 months - another
update arriving soon?

I asked for an update about XE6 Update 1 on June 16th
and it was released June 19th. I'll take that as a
sign that you hurried it up just for me!   ;)

Thanks
