RAD Studio 10.2 TokyoThis week, and somme days earlier than expected, has been released the new version of our preferred programming environment, RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo.

In this new release, the news more important is, without any doubt, the possibility of compiling our applications for a new platform, in this case Linux. However, it is not intended for desktop applications, but for server applications (DataSnap REST above all). At the moment it has support for Ubuntu Server (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS) and RedHat Enterprise Linux (version 7).

If we take a look at What’s New, we’ll see that most improvements are on this line. However, it is not the only one and there are others that are also interesting and important.

  • FireMonkey improvements
  • FireDAC improvements (especially for Firebird y MySQL)
  • App Tethering improvements
  • New Hash functions
  • Some IDE improvements
  • Debuggers improvements for iOS and macOS
  • ……

Here you has a link to a video with the Tokyo improvements.

If you want to assist to launch Webminar, it will be on March 27th.

  • 8:00 AM CDT
  • 1:00 PM CDT
  • 6:00 PM CDT

Due to the future closure of google.code, the raw files are no longer available. For this reason and because GMLib uses StyledMarker.js hosted in this servers, GMLib has stopped working.

However the solution is easy: upload this file to another server and do a small changes into the GMLib code.

So, I have uploaded StyledMarker.js to the GitHub GMLib repository. Now, you only need to do this small modification into GMLib:

  • Into .\resources\map.html file replace this url
http://google-maps-utility-library-v3.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/styledmarker/src/StyledMarker.js

by this other

https://rawgit.com/cadetill/gmlib_v1/master/Resources/StyledMarker.js
  • Recreate resource file executing  .\resources\rc.cmd
  • Build (no compile) all GMLib

With this easy steps we have GMLib up to date.

Another option is download the changes from the repository.

Until the next entry!

Searching info for GMLib library about news from TWebBrowser in Android and iOS in new version of RAD Studio (HTML access and JavaScript function execution), I have found the TWebBrowserEx class that does all that I need.

This class created by Jun HOSOKAWA is compatible with RAD Studio (from XE5 version -with minor changes- until Seattle 10) and with Appmethod (from 1.14 to 1.17).

The TWebBrowserEx class inherits from TWebBrowser directly (so that will be compatible with all applications developed with this component) adding some nice improvements: Seguir leyendo

The first thing we see when you open our 10 Seattle, is a marked improvement in the speed of opening. This is due to improvements in the use of memory (RAM consumption is not limited to 2GB, you can now use up to 4Gb). Seguir leyendo
