Apple has been shipping iOS devices with 64-bit CPUs for a while but Apple is now requiring App Store apps to include 64-bit binaries. We've been running a beta for several months for developers to create 64-bit iOS apps, so I want to share some screenshots of this feature with you. Don't forget, you can buy XE7 now and get the next release when it ships, see www.embarcadero.com/radoffer (it is highly recommended to add regular update subscription after this time limited one expires)
First, to build a 64-bit target, simply select it in the project manager and compile.
There’s a long history of static code analysis tools for a variety of languages. I’m probably not the only one who remembers PC-Lint’s ancient print magazine advertisements, which had a C code snippet and asked you to spot the problem with it. A compiler, of course is an example of just this: its hints and warnings are unnecessary but useful output. It doesn’t have to emit them – it really only needs to emit errors – but we appreciate when it does. Often, in fact, I personally wish that Delphi emitted more hints and warnings than it does.
