Latest Delphi and RAD Studio items

No major story today. Just some links to some Delphi items and some of the things we've been working on recently.

New White Paper on Delphi XE
The new version of Andreano Lanusse's technical white paper "Reasons to Migrate to Delphi XE - What you might have missed since Delphi 7" is now available. This 100+ page paper has great information on new features that have been added in every version since Delphi 7. You have to be logged into your Embarcadero Developer Network account or set up a free account to download the paper using that link.

RAD Studio on eWeek's Products to Watch List
RAD Studio XE is item #1 in the latest edition of eWeek's "Products to Watch" list.

RAD Studio Ad 
Our new RAD Studio family magazine ad featuring Delphi, C++Builder, Delphi Prism and RadPHP is in this week's issue of SD Times magazine. 

Profiling Webinar
I attended the AQtime for RAD Studio webinar this morning. Good attendance and really good information about using the AQtime Standard edition profiling tools that are included in Delphi XE, C++Builder XE and RAD Studio XE. I liked the info on the different approaches with doing profiling when you find a performance problem or profiling earlier-on to look for potential issues that might arise. It was also useful to see the walkthrough of using the profiling integration in the Delphi/C++Builder IDE and how to do different kinds of profiling. Thanks to Nick, Sergei and team at SmartBear for a very informative presentation. There is one more session tonight so you can register now for that. Even if you can't attend, we'll send you a link to view the replay if you're registered.

RAD Studio XE (Delphi XE and C++Builder XE) Update 1
If you saw in the EDN newsletter that Delphi/C++Builder XE Update 1 is "not" available, rest assured that it's only a typo and the update is "now" available. There were a few issues reported related to the update and here are some solutions. See this support article for info on error 2318 related to the Integrated Translation Environment. If you're using DDevExtensions, be sure to get the latest version that's compatible with Update 1. We're posting the inline versions of the ISOs and installers on CodeCentral and the registered user download pages this afternoon. You can tell if you have the new version of the full installer or ISO download if it has "3953" in the file name.

Introduction to Delphi Prism
If you haven't checked out the Introduction to Delphi Prism session video replay from CodeRage, take a look and learn how you can use Delphi Prism for building .NET and cross-platform Mono applications. Delphi Prism is also part RAD Studio.

I find it bizarre that I have to register to access a document that is, in essence, promotional material.

(Oops - my comment was addressed only at Andreano Lanusse's white paper.)

It's also freely available from our white papers download page They just didn't have it up there when I did the blog post so I used the other link.
