Following the beta testing period and some blog post pre-announcing some of the key features (see also my blog), yesterday Embarcadero officially released RAD Studio 10.4 Sydney, which includes Delphi 10.4.
There are many new features in the product. For Delphi developers the key are:
There is way more in the product, this is just my personal take of the top 3 areas we worked on. Extensive bug fixing is another key element of 10.4, with one of the highest number of public reported bug fixed in a release. And the return of a very nice classic Delphi Greek helmet logo!

in my tests, when you put any component default, like a Button, ListBox, Grid, etc.. in a new project VCL or FMX and try edit the properties these components in Visual LiveBind, for example:
-- click in 3 points "..." to add new property in Visual LiveBind the IDE into in colapse and booomm! it's gone... disappear in your screen and task manager.
did you try some like this?
Another problem is happening to me:
Drag a TMemo to form.Double click the "Lines" property to open String List Editor dialog.Click "Code Editor" Button... it raises a AV error in coreide270.bpl.
Can't replicate on my system. Tried dragging TMemo to Delphi and C++ Builder form, both FMX and VCl and no problems when double click lines or when select elipses
There are two separate issues.
One is if you place a TMemo on a VCL form, then bring up the String List Property editor and select "code editor", you may get an access violation coredide270.bpl, so you cannot use the property editor from VB pane..
The other is for many of the VCL components, put a component down on the form select bind visually, then click on the ellipses to try to edit the properties, the IDE crashes completely and shuts down? I've tried this same thing several times and it crashes each time.
correct! 2 problems or bugs is raised!
did you try change the background color of TForms?
Yes, alas that does not work either
Changing color works during runtime, it does not in designer - maybe it is intentional?
