With this article, the RAD Studio PM team is introducing an updated roadmap for Delphi, C++Builder and RAD Studio. This May 2019 roadmap includes plans for the next 12 months. Alongside, we have also published a May 2019 Roadmap PM Commentary blog post, with more details and information.
Datasnap still need a lot more upgrades, it is still bloated, slow, and can't perform well for high speed request. Datasnap is only good for small limited connected user. The technology concept is really good, i'm not touching RAD Server yet, since i want to create and handle all server architecture, Datasnap can give me that power. Hope Datasnap can compete with the other server framework like Real Thin Client, mormot, or others that has more speed and performance
looks like Goggle allowed an extension for Unity
If you are not ready why not try to negociate a delay with Google ? did you ask them ?
An issue was open on : https://quality.embarcadero.com/browse/RSP-24562
Yes Android 64 bit support should get the highest priority so it can be available by no later than August 2019.
This roadmap is not a good news for c++biilder developer. C++17 support is not a urgent matter for us but android x64 support is. Is there a workaround that is temporarily available? Some companies will lose money because of the android app maintenance contract.Some companies may lose orders because they can't get android x32 app on the play store.
Is there any plans to install the Delphi IDE on Linux (e.g.: openSUSE)?
... then why including them at all?
Yes, I have been fighting with BLE for month now without much success! If most of the old sample projects do not work,
This is unfortunately the end for Embarcadero. An alternative could be to migrate to Delphi, but our choise will be to migrate to another more mainstream and future proof IDE - Rad Studio cross platform we think is never going to work, turned to be the worlds most expensive mockup tool, and we do not intend to waste more time waiting for a perhaps. Especialy larger companies is not expected to take the risk on Embarcadero, so its dead Jim.
And not only the 64 bit Delphi but the C++ also...
What You all plan and wrote in Your blog, is a great mistake and let us leave no other choice, only to say 'Goodbye' to Your product after over 20 years since Turbo C..."One roadmap change you may notice for C++ specifically is that we removed macOS 64-bit and Android 64-bit platform support for this year. This does not mean that we will not add support for these platforms for C++ in the future (and we will support these platforms for Delphi this year)."Did You ever analized the consequences of this decision: All Android Apps written in C++ cannot be not even updated at least 1 year long after 9/1/2019?! No more choice for us to publish new Apps?! You had a lot of time since end of 2017 after Google announced the 64bit requirement! The SDK 26 implementation was also long - but not so long - after the timeline! For cross plattform C++ developers the main and most important feature of RAD Studio is the "multiplattform" coding. IT'S OVER. Congratulation.
I think and have to say straight-out: Embarcadero's development management doesn't know the requirements of there customers=developers. Please, let us know in a short time to be at least fair enough: Do You change the roadmap or we have to look for another product to be able to continue our production, because we cannot afford us to lose our customers, as EMB currently making.
Agree, no cross platform development, everything else dosnt matter - ie Linux support, Rad Server, Interbase, DatSnap, nice IDE graphics and the other non-important projects. Wonder how many ressoruces they wasted on the wrong projects. You can workaround bugs, missing features misbehavior - but you cant work around key platforms not supported.
The basic selling point of C++ Builder in Embarcadero marketing is it is a cross-platform solution. Yet they are dropping macOS as of this autumn (so no desktop cross-platform) and Android as of August (so no mobile cross-platform), both of which are going to require 64-bit. Seems like C++ Builder is going to become a Windows-only solution, which is a big change and the opposite of the strategy for the past, what, 8 years? Being able to deploy to major OSes that are currently supported is a must-have for developers in the real world, everything else is nice-to-have. Yet Embarcadero seems to be focusing on the nice-to-have stuff. I agree with GameOver - this seems like a catastrophic error from the perspective of cross-platform development potential for C++ Builder. Perhaps I'm just missing something here, Embarcadero? If I were at Embarcadero, it would be drop-everything-else-all-hands-on-deck until macOS and Android cross-platform is re-established. Otherwise, there would be a major announcement on the change in vision for the product, and much more talking to customers about this.
Maybe you are right, but then Delphi doesn't fit in that concept. I can't see any benefit of using Delphi for server-side services instead of using Go or some other language. Do not misunderstand me I really love Delphi and I'm using Delphi since ver. 1.0.
