Embarcadero have announced the availability of the next major version of RAD Studio, 10.4 Sydney.(more…)
Update: Due to customer requests, we’ve extended the special offer until December 15th.
Embarcadero have announced the release of RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder 10.3.3.
This update to 10.3 Rio has been eagerly awaited by many of our customers, and includes:
Update: We had a great response to the webinar. Thanks to everyone who attended. I’ve updated the post below with the recording and links to the other materials.
Code Partners is co-presenting a webinar next week with Embarcadero, detailing the story of how a major freight company took a 20-year old Delphi 6 client-server application and converted it to a Microservices architecture, leveraging Kubernetes and containers and still using Delphi.
Here’s the description:
It’s 2014. Brazil’s largest domestic Freight company is facing a problem. The 20 year old Delphi 6 application which ran a crucial part of their operation could not scale to keep up with the massive growth they were experiencing.
They’d already tried to replace it twice, once with SAP and once with Java, and both projects had failed. Their next attempt had to work.
It’s 2019. Their new operational system is flexible, scalable, saving them money and rock solid. It uses a modern, microservices architecture built on top of Docker and Kubernetes and leveraging DevOps principles.
Oh, and it’s still written in Delphi!
This is a great story of recognising the value in an existing system, and how migration is often a faster, lower risk approach than a rewrite. It will be presented by Code Partners’ own Malcolm Groves, Fernando Rizzato from Embarcadero and Kelver Merlotti from Embarcadero Brazil.
The webinar will be held on Thursday, August 29, 2019 at 11am AEST (9am in Perth/Singapore, 1pm in New Zealand) and you can register here. Hope to see you on the webinar!

Lastly, here’s the recording. Hope you enjoy it.
A whole bunch of new drivers have been added to Enterprise Connectors, including support for:
If you are an existing RAD Studio or Delphi Enterprise or Architect customer there is now some very nice additional functionality you can download through GetIt.
Effective today, FMXLinux has been added to the IDE. Not just as a one off, but as an ongoing feature. Not as a feature reduced trial, but the full product!
Ansible 2.8 has been released. While not as many major features as 2.7, there are an absolute truckload of smaller features, including quite a few focussed on Windows. Some highlights for me:
A new version of Ansible Tower has been released, including some useful features we’ve been looking forward to.
In particular the additions to Workflow look very nice:
There is a more detailed write-up over on the Ansible Blog.
Overnight Embarcadero have released RAD Studio 10.3 Rio.
We’ve been writing about some of the new features prior to release, but now there’s a short What’s New video below, and a more detailed description of the changes here on the docwiki. (more…)
Over the last week or so Embarcadero has started publicly disclosing more information about the next major release of RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder, 10.3.
This is usually a pretty good sign that the release is not far away, so we thought we’d create a single post with links to all the public information that we have, and keep it updated as more is released.
Back in August, Embarcadero updated their Public Roadmap. (Of course, something appearing on the roadmap is not a guarantee it’ll be released when they planned, but it was the best we had to go on, until recently). Here’s what they said about 10.3 at the time: (more…)
