A Forum for Embarcadero C++ Users ?

As mentioned on my posting of 16th Nov 2020, Embarcadero have shut down the invaluable forum that used to be at https://community.idera.com/

I’ve been alerted to the new branch on the Delphi-Praxis forum site that is devoted to Embarcadero C++ users. This has been set up in response to the Embarcadero closure.

Embarcadero Publish Updated Road Map

Embarcadero have just published a new developer tools road map.

The actual road map can be viewed by clicking here

There is a blog offering more information about the proposals, by Marco Cantu and David Millington available by clicking here.

The great news is that C++ 64 bit for Android is still up there, albeit a tantalising way off yet…..

The improvements to the IDE, C++ debugging and additional VCL controls also sound great !

Embarcadero Close Down their Community Forum

Embarcadero have shut down the invaluable forum that used to be at https://community.idera.com/

If you try to open this page you get automatically re-directed to https://blogs.embarcadero.com/ which is an Embarcadero authored page of useful postings with no opportunity for users to ask questions for other users to answer (in other words it is not a forum).

So where should Embarcadero C++ users go to ask questions?

Embarcadero’s answer seems to be “Stackoverflow”

As an MVP we were warned that this change may happen. I strongly discouraged Embarcadero from going in this direction, indicating that they would lose a channel that provides good feedback for them as to how well their products are performing and also provides a chance for them to demonstrate their level of technical support.

It seems such a shame to have lost this site.
