Attributes and the new RTTI in Delphi 2010 (by Malcolm Groves)

I consider this as the most relevant new feature in Delphi 2010, from what I know.

Attributes and the new RTTI in Delphi 2010 by Malcolm Groves 

Well, if THAT is the most relevant feature then all
D2010 thing is just a big hype. D2009 introduced
generics and closures (buggy, but interesting). I
expected to see further steps to functional
programming. Is there any reason to upgrade to D2010?
Attributes looks like useless feature.

Hi Marco,

yes I agree with you!

This is the most important new features (IHMO) ;-)

This, together with generics, and I hope soon to 64 
bits, are the things that most expect from an Delphi 
update

Best Regards

Great, RTTI has needed an overhaul for some time.

Does anyone know if we can expect Multicast events to 
be built into Delphi 2010?

To see how attributes could be used. 

Checkout out http://g-framework.org/ to see how
comment based attributes could be used in a framework.
 There's video demos.
