Embarcadero Technologies, a leading provider of software solutions for application and database development, has released an update (R1) to Embarcadero RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo. It’s an update of Delphi 10.2 Tokyo, C++Builder 10.2 Tokyo and RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo for active Update Subscription customers. It includes 100s of platform focused enhancements, bug fixes and features.

RAD Studio supports 5 platforms today: Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Linux. Platform vendors frequently make changes to their operating systems which at times impact us on the development side. We continuously track these changes to ensure our customers can target the latest operating systems. 10.2.1 not only provides a number of new features and bug fixes, but also addresses key OS changes that have been impacting our customers. A significant issue we fixed on Windows was changing our compilers and linkers to address an OS level change on Windows 10 Creators Update affecting the way the operating system loads DLLs and Delphi packages (BPLs), which ends up repeating the load operation multiple times and severely hampering the debugging of applications with runtime packages. Microsoft has addressed the issues in the beta of the future version of Windows 10, but not in Creators Update.

In May 2017, we published our latest roadmap. Given the popularity of VCL within our install base, we want to make sure that this framework continues to evolve rapidly and we are accelerating investments in this area. We see a nice increase in usage of Windows 10 and we feel that we can deliver even more value to developers with the coming releases. With that focus and the addition of the platform enhancements release to our release schedule, you will see that some some of the features previously listed under 10.2.1 and 10.2.2 in our roadmap are being reprioritized for 10.2.2 and beyond. This includes C++ for Linux. PM will be providing additional roadmap updates in the coming weeks.
