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!

Posting issues here is far form useful. We have most of this issues tracked in Quality Portal and some are going to be addressed soon with a hotfix. But logging here implies no tracking will be done.
Marco, if you find many issues here (the wrong place) it is only a "signal". If you have some influence in the developing process, you should be aware that developers don't need a "moving unstable target released every few months", but a solid - bug free - stable version; that can be automatically and easily patched if some bugs are fixed or small features added.
When dealing with software, when do you ever have a solid bug free stable version? And they just added the ability to automatically and easily patch if some bugs are fixed.
