Attend the Webinar (Tomorrow)

Don't miss the webinar tomorrow (forms.embarcadero.com/RADXE6Webinar4-16 -- more of a launch webinar than a preview one, at this point) in which JT and myself will present the key new features of the product.

Buy It (or recharge your XE5 license)

Buy the product online or from one of the Embarcadero partners around the world, taking advantage of the active offers. And if you are already on XE5, you can take advantage of the new recharge price, which is slightly less than half of the regular update. You can recharge your XE5 license with an identical one (same product, same version) of your existing license. Read more at www.embarcadero.com/products/rad-studio/recharge.

Stay tuned for a wealth of information on XE6 in the coming days, from this blog and many other sources. For now, enjoy the what's new video, below:

So far, that video seems pretty anticlimactic.

 Sounds nice. I am really interested in the Tethering 
components and would like a more detailed description of 
the Tethering components. Will they allow me to do the 
following: With an iPad connected to my Windows computer 
via USB cable (not wireless) sending data/commands from 
my Windows application to the iPad app AND vice versa.

This might sound trivial, but is it too much to ask for 
an IDE to notice the previous version is installed and 
offer to pull the settings forward?

we're on what version of the IDE now?  The process is 
getting tiring.

 I agree with C Johnson: The process to install all the 
settings and components again each time a new IDE comes 
out is far TOO time-consuming and tedious! After having 
finished setting up a new IDE, the next version comes 
out! In this way Embarcadero shoots itself in the foot 
because this tedious process deters users from buying 
an upgrade!

Marco,

I have a VCL application that uses 2 third-party 
packages that only have VCL versions, and don't have 
and aren't planning to develop a FireMonkey version.

What I can't find among all Embarcadero's description 
of the features in XE6 are which ones work with VCL 
only, which ones work with FireMonkey, and which work 
with both. 

Is this available anywhere?

Almost everything that appears on the 2014 roadmap
were delivered in XE6. What else can we expect for
2014 in XE7?

XE6 and Windows XP 

Hello, from what I understand from the Feature Matrix
building application for Windows XP is not supported
anymore.
>> "... creating 32-bit Windows applications for
Windows 8 and 8.1, Windows 7, and Windows Vista;
Server 2008 and 2012"

I did a quick test and VCL/Fmx Win32 apps seems to be
working fine.

Should I upgrade to XE6 if targeting Windows XP is
critical for me? What problem should I expect?

Stephane, 

  while XE6 doesn't officially support XP (meaning, we are not doing any 
testing specific to that version) there were no changes to the libraries 
done in a way that would impact XP. So all applications should keep 
running. However, over time, we might end up removing support to older 
APIs, for example in FireMonkey. 

For the good or the bad, Microsoft has dropped XP support (with the last 
remnants going away soon) and it time to push end users to move on.

Marco, thank you for your quick answer. I have one XE2
and two XE5 RAD Studio Pro licences and I wanted to
update to XE6 for all three. The only thing bugging me
was the XP support.

I'm working in the Power Industry. People there are
some how really conservative. We sale half of our
stuff outside USA. A lot in emerging countries.
Pushing our end users to use Windows 7 will be hard.
So for those reasons my boss told me that we might
need to support Windows XP for at least 2 more years.
If we are lucky maybe people will upgrade for security
reason.
