"Sneak Preview: Delphi 2011 is Delphi XE" - Server not found

Today, Delphi's Welcome page showed this:

Sneak Preview: Delphi 2011 is Delphi XE
http://www.embarcadero.com/rad-studio-xe-preview

When trying to watch the video, it gives an error message:

Server not found:

How nice :-(

It works for me (in Internet Explorer - shhh).

So, after watching the video, I have to ask - is Delphi XE going to be 
cross-platform, or have plans changed again?

The SVN support looks pretty well done, but they've either done a good job 
of stripping out anything cross-platform related from the video/IDE, or the 
IDE doesn't seem to have cross-platform support.

Look like they merged all available products into one to create a new
single product until the next major Delphi version gets done.

Somehow this reminds me of Turbo Delphi Pro. Codegear/Borland threw this
one into the race to make new money w/o really releasing new features.

OK, now there is Subversion support. Will it work with local or network
share repositories, too?

Included is Beyond Compare. Is this a full version or again a nice try to
include a de-featured version of a commercial product like so many times
before?

Delphi XE or whatever seems to be an iterims release until the next major
Delphi gets done. This is really poor try and seems like a rip-off like
Turbo Delphi Pro in former times.

Maybe they could upload a version on Youtube, Dailymotion, Hulu, etc.?

I had a look at the [we now do subversion since it been out for years] video 
and it worked OK right up until someone said '..into the cloud' at which 
point my brain auto disengaged.

Wasn't that the *point* with  the Turbos? Stripped down RAD Studio for a very

Do you have a Flash player installed? According to Wikipedia "Real Time
Messaging Protocol (RTMP) is a proprietary protocol developed by Adobe
Systems for streaming audio, video and data over the Internet, between a
Flash player and a server.".

Might be a good idea for Embarcadero to mention this on the page...

Worked here too.  It's good to see some hard information starting to 
trickle out.

But someone really needs to tell Michael Rozlog to slow down a little 
when he is in "demo mode".  It might also help if, instead of just 
saying what he is doing ["I right-click on x... then I choose y..."], he 
indicated *why* he is doing it [and not one of the several other options 
that were just flashed in front our eyes].

Sure, there was a lot of info in just 15 minutes but the overall effect 
was to leave me feeling a little "mentally battered" :)

Is it just me or is Rad Studio XE not much more than a bundle of 
modestly enhanced existing products that claims to be "cross platform" 
because it includes Delphi for PHP?

Am I missing something?

Look at the DevExpress product videos and learn. Professionally
scripted training and announcement videos. Each word has its place
and is succinct.

The script is spoken by a nice looking and well dressed Actress who probably 
doesn't know a component feature from a can of baked beans but
never the less conveys the message along with the right emotional
involvement and voice intonation.

Also, the introduction has corporate graphics and a familiar musical theme.

Content + Presentation = Involvement

In the first video they gave an example for local and share
repositories.

They made an API and for compare you can plug in any diff program.
There was a conversation about that. You can choose Beyond Compare,
Winmerge, whatever you need.

They are working on mayor compiler rewrite. I hope there will be
something more than just these changes.

At last! Built-in support for Version Control. Why, though, have they not 
created more generic support (SCC API is the most supported api for this, 
and is also supported by SVN)?

So you now have to use SVN for your source control *or* use a provider that 
has made the effort (incl. us) to provide integration specifically for 
Delphi/BCB.

I managed to *download* the mp4 video file from

Explore Videos -> Recent -> RAD Studio XE 2010 Preview | Productivity...
and it played nice with VLC.

(Warning: The video is available in four different languages. You can 
only see what language it is if you click on the Download-buttons.)

So I left out D2010 because of the lack of new features, I will do so for
Delphi XE and jump on again when Delphi is at 64bit. 

Luckily I don't have SA as I would really bother about those peu à peu
updates.

OK an API, however, I don't want to buy again a third party product to
enhance the Delphi IDE. 
This happend to me too many times in the past. EMBC should really get on
their feet now and include full version products instead of unfinished
feature-cut ones like Quick Report, Tee-Chart, Rave-Report and many other
in the past. I didn't use any of them 'cause many of their competitors have
way better products, e.g. Fast-Report.

I really hope that the 'new' features they are promising are not again
built on adding demo version of other companies products.

Exactly my understanding - just an interims 'product' enhanced with some
already available tools, until the final release of Delphi 64.

At least for version control and diff there are free products that you
can plug-in. How they implemented this future (according to this video)
the new Delphi could satisfy my needs.

I can agree in that that attaching stripped down version of a
commercial product was not the best idea for reporting engines. You can
never be sure what will be included in the next version. Whenever that
will satisfy your needs.

First of all I now need to find a Delphi developer job. Then I can
worry about the future of entire Delphi.

So far, if there is more, it doesn't show.

I just watched in disbelief the video about SVN and comparison, to what 
public was this video targeted at? All this is so... underwhelming, 
already-doing-that-for-years-with-a-better-UI underwhelming.

And the diagramming... they had only two classes on screen, and it was 
already looking cluttered and messy.

Loved it when Mike tried to pass off the Prism Visual Studio
look and feel as the same as RAD Studio and RAD PHP.

They are visually uniform in the sense that they are all IDEs :-)

So if they include the full version and you still don't like it you'll still 
have to get something else.

But if they include the full version they'll also have to charge a lot 
more - I would think the companies supplying the full versions of these 
products would like to get paid their full price or at least reasonably 
close to it, otherwise how do you expect them to continue?

"Lite" versions can be a pain, but they are still of value over *nothing*. 
For many users they are enough, they never need more. But if you decide you 
do you still have the option of getting it - or getting a competitor's 
version. This way the cost is kept minimal for EMBC and the 3rd party 
vendors have a potential for upsales. The lite versions are sufficient to 
let you try them, do *actual* work with them, and decide whether you want to 
continue using them. By getting many more to try the products, it helps sell 
the 3rd party products, which reciprocally can help EMBC sales down the road 
as well. So generally, it is a win-win-win for the three parties involved.

Maybe they use SCC API after all (since Prism has the same version control support) and if not someone can make a layer between Delphi's source control api and SCC API.

After watching the video, you're right!  There really wasnt much in the 
video at all.  I assumed there would at least be a few paragraphs worth. 
But... just more IDE functionality that I simply dont need at the expense of 
compiler improvements that would let me reach new customers.

How I interpret the video:
- Linux & MAC support takes longer than excpeted
- Win64 support takes longer than expected
- the new compiler front & backend takes longer than expected.
- Embarcadero needs money to complete all this.
- they put everything they currently have into a packet and try to sell it.

Impact to me:
- I would have needed Win64 years ago - had to find another solution for this
- I need Linux support now (what i did not expect :) - will use another solution
- I still like Delphi! 
- I did not plan to buy D2010, because it did not give me anything I urgently needed. 
- But I think, I will now buy XE anyway. And if i's just to support Embarcdero and help them to survive to bring out Linux, MAC and Win64 support!

Where in the video do you find any information to support your interpretation? Unless everything that *isn't* there has significant meanings... This was the first video, not a full commercial for the complete product!

I think they are obsessed with bling for managers rather than real

You are right, but the lack of the information is also an information. But with the 1 year support we might get a "free" upgrade to the Linux & MAC support.
(And you deleted my text, where I said taht I will buy the XE version anyway. Even it it's just to support Delphi ;)

- They promised only MAC support for this version. For Linux it was
clear that they can't finish for this version and nobody promised.

- Win64 support and new compiler correct. We can hope that they will
finish next year.

- I don’t believe that they just need money. Maybe they would like to
give us reason to extend the SA? :D I strongly believe that they had
finished something more than version control system integration. Maybe
they solved some problems and fixed bugs and introduced new ones (to
make life more interesting for us).
- I would not say that they just won’t to sell something. In the recent
couple of version they put something new worth inside.

I know that WIN64 and MAC support was not promised! I don't see it negative at all.
And stop keeping to delete the part of the text, where  i said that I will probably do the upgrade!

Something slightly related: I've been giving Google Chrome another shot
lately and when I arrived at the page
http://blogs.embarcadero.com/michaelrozlog/2010/08/10/37149
and scrolled down, it started to get very messy. Not the case when
viewed with IE.

Question: is this due to wrong interpretation of HTML/JS by Chrome or
to wrong HTML/JS tout court (that's a bit of French)?

I never replied to the fact that you will do the upgrade. When you post
to any forum you should leave only the parts of the original message
that is needed that anyone can understand your message (If someone need
more information can read the original post). Its a bit rude to quote
ten pages of message just to say yes or no. For this thread is not
about whenever will someone upgrade or not.

The Subversion stuff is of no interest to me; the fact that D4PHP is 
moving ahead may be. But I regard my SA sub as a strategic payment; 
it's less than 1% of sales. My dad's business ethos was "look after 
your good suppliers: you need them as much as they need you". 

A year ago Malcolm Groves at the Melbourne D2010 launch event said 
that there had been a renewed emphasis on quality - I believed him, 
switched to it as soon as I got it and I've been more than happy. 
Hopefully the new release will carry this on. This costs money - I'm 
happy to chip in my few dollars to ensure a sound future for Delphi 
and my business.

Thanks John, this version worked directly and without issues.

Not sure what's going on, but the youtube version appeared cleaner than 
the mp4 I downloaded from embarcadero. Maybe a player thing if it's the

Interesting. I'll have to give that a try if I ever get the chance.

For me, the youtube version (720p) was much smoother while the
http://www.embarcadero.com/rad-studio-xe-preview version was a bit sharper
(OK to read the text on fullscreen) but having problems on every large change
in the picture (blocky for a while until it stabilizes).

Good luck - especially when knowing what is coming out of the box the next

Luckily we don't use Delphi anymore here in our company. I'm still using it

Ok, IOW if they would drop them I will get Delphi a lot cheaper, right?
This would help me more since many of those announced 'new' features are
way too late and already installed on my PC. Which means in turn I've
already paid for them and I won't need them again in D-XE.

Why not release a plugin based Delphi? You can configure Delphi they way
you want. Today I will add Generics, later on x64 spending just some bucks
and not buy the same old boat again and again each year.

another thing is if you really can expect a normal price for this update, at

interims release like this. There is nothing in it what i really need,

You used the term "money's worth."  I assumed you were implying that
the value was not equal with the cost, which means "overpriced."

Ok, I follow your logic.

I do not subscribe to SA; you do. Can you explain to me how you have 
benefited from your SA subscription? Convince me that you have gotten 
more value from SA than I have by not having SA and maybe I'll 
reconsider purchasing it with my next upgrade. Seriously.

Sorry -- while I am happy to tell people how much I like Delphi, I am
not a sales agent for Embarcadero and don't have time to do all that.
Suffice it to say I am happy with the arrangement so far.

Works fine for me, using FF 3.6 with the latest Flash Player (10.1)
installed. It opens a popup to play the video, though, so perhaps your

yes and Yes.  And it can run beside TortoiseSVN no worries.  The source
will be made available on the Internet (sourceforge?) and we are
working with Subversion and working with others who are interested in
adding additional Version Control systems using the APIs and
integration.

A subset version.  But if you have full Beyond Compare - then the IDE
uses that version.

it is easy to look at versions you consider upgrading to, taking those
upgrade prices over a number of years and also compare the amount to
starting at one point with a license and SA and then renewing each
year.  Simple spreadsheet formulas.  We will deliver a major new vesion
each year in the fall - as we have for at least 3 previous versions now.

SA renewal price is less than upgrade price.  Easy to do the math if
you skip more than every other version

There is an IDE API and the source code will be available as an example

You can continue to use whatever version control you want.  And there
will be additional integrations in the future from us and others.  Git
anyone?

We have open apis, component architecture - and a large vibrant
ecosystem, of partners - both commercial, free, open source and other.
You have all the choices and options you need.

Not sure what your definition of "full version products" is.  In some
cases we provide full version products for desktop and the partner
sells the server side, or full components and the partner sells source
code, support and additional components and plug-ins.

Sometimes easier said/written than done.  But I agree, it would be
interesting to have more granularity in the pieces and parts you want.
I think one example of this is Eclipse :)

I think Ewan is thinking more along the lines of Team Coherence.  :^)
And how much work it will be to get it to integrate with the IDE.

Could be nice, but only if Eclipse loading could have been far faster. 
It looked nice, but I have almost given it up due to incredible long 
load time.

This new stuff is definitely interesting and using this with JEDI VCS
is definitely on my to-do list. I'll blog about that.

You need to improve the attractiveness of Pro level SA.

Will ask Dave Wilhelm in R&D (he worked on the version control IDE api)
to see what we might consider for open APIs for planning/scheduling/bug
tracking.
