SKU Cleanup for Old Versions of Delphi, C++Builder, Delphi Prism and RAD Studio

We’re working on a SKU cleanup project that will be taking effect by early January. This will involve discontinuing part numbers for older product versions which can now be purchased as part of the latest XE versions.

The latest versions Delphi XE, C++Builder XE, Delphi Prism XE and RAD Studio XE include access to older versions at no extra charge.

After the change, if you need a copy of Delphi 2010, you’ll just purchase the latest version (Delphi XE) which includes free access to older version licenses and downloads including version 2010.

Here’s a list of what will be changing:

Product Line
Versions that will no longer be sold separately
Buy this instead
7, 2007, 2009, 2010
Delphi XE
(includes access to all those older versions)
6, 2007, 2009, 2010
C++Builder XE
(includes access to all those older versions)
Delphi and C++Builder Bundle
RAD Studio XE
(includes access to all the older versions above)
Delphi Prism
2009, 2010, 2011
Delphi Prism XE
(serial number works with 2011, includes access to 2010)
RAD Studio
2007, 2009, 2010
RAD Studio XE
(includes access to all the older versions above)

Note that XE “Academic” editions don’t include older version licenses so Academic older version licenses will still be available separately.

This change will mean the elimination of 922 SKUs which should make it significantly easier for people to find what they need when they’re making a purchase.

SmartBear’s AQtime Pro is a multi-purpose application profiler that provides performance, memory, code coverage, and a host of other views on the application behavior and internal structure. AQtime Pro is available as a plugin for RAD Studio XE and previous releases of Embarcadero products.

This Webinar will take you through a case of performance analysis of two sorting algorithms with AQtime Pro and showcase some of its advanced features. Once again, we illustrate that guessing is not a good approach when it comes to application performance. We will also review automation options for using AQtime with regular regression testing and continuous integration, and provide a brief summary of other quality-oriented products from SmartBear.

If you didn't attend the first webinar in the series and want to catch up before seeing the second, you can watch the replay of AQtime for RAD Studio - Application Profling at your Fingertips.
