Delphi XE2 Help Update 5

Embarcadero has released a new version of the RAD Studio help file, including lots of new material.

Embarcadero has released a new version of the RAD Studio help file, including lots of new material. You can see the announcement on Tim Del Chiaro's blog at  http://delphi-insider.blogspot.com/2012/04/help-update-5-for-delphi-xe2-and.html.

The download link (for registered users) is at http://cc.embarcadero.com/item/28810 and more information is in the Help Update 5 Readme online at http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/en/Readme_-_Help_Update_5_for_Delphi_and_C%2B%2BBuilder_XE2.

Notice that the same information was already added to the docwiki site over the past weeks, so you could already read this (for example the FireMonkey Quick Start Guide I blogged about last week). But for some developers it is nice to have the information in the local help.

Quite interestingly, at the very moment Embarcadero released this file, attendees at Delphi Developer Days in Chicago were complaining and asking us (and Embarcadero) about the status of the help... which is slowly improving but it is honestly a problem Delphi has. Anders mentioned a new update was coming, but we didn't expect it right away (nor was he hinting this). During the same discussion attendees asked for books... and I promised (again) to finish mine on FireMonkey as soon as possible.

PS. The fact I'm a traveling around the US for this event is the main reason I'm a bit slow in blogging these days... my backlog for the blog is growing!

Delphi XE2 Help Update 5 

Thanks Marco. I find it very difficult to check if
there are updates for my Delphi XE2. I spent some time
on the downloads pages, seems there is only one
hotfix? Is this correct? Where does one normally go to
ensure you have the latest version?
