Embarcadero Updates

Embarcadero released Delphi Community Edition, a great step to get the product back to students and hobbyist with support for mobile platforms in a free edition, for non-prossional developers. The release has been very well received and had a large number of downloads, but we are asking all Delphi developers to spread the word. 

We have released an updated roadmap for RAD Studio, https://community.embarcadero.com/article/news/16638-rad-studio-august-2018-roadmap, along with a commentary blog post bby the PM team, https://community.embarcadero.com/blogs/entry/august-2018-roadmap-commentary-from-product-management
