Embarcadero have just announced the availability of RAD Studio Rio 10.3. The road map published this summer promised this before the end of the year so they have delivered on time.
This release has many major new features and enhancements. I talk more about this release in future postings here, but in the meantime to see “what’s new” information have a look at this link.
What’s new in Rio 10.3
There is an ongoing debate about the advantage of using/not using an automatic reference counting approach to compiler memory management.
Embarcadero are not immune to this discussion and have recently hinted that they may be changing direction here with their Delphi compilers. This is a big step which will affect virtually everyone who uses Delphi so you can be sure that the designers at Embarcadero will have taken this decision after much discussion.
For a little more information have a look at this link.
