RAD Studio 2010, the latest version of of the well-known Delphi programming language/ide/suite for MS Windows, which also includes C++ Builder, has been released.  The tool, previously released by the company known as Borland and then CodeGear, is now being managed by a company called Embarcadero.

I've used C++ Builder (which is basically the full C++ language with extra support for the Delphi visual class components) to develop most of my larger applications -- the 3rd party visual component support for it (for Delphi) is extremely impressive, which makes it possible t create very poweful GUI interfaces rather quickly.  As a true "rapid application development" tool -- it's hard to beat it in terms of being able to quickly test user interface ideas.

Is this C++ now 64 Bit aware, or will we have to wait for another release?

Not yet. A few new features are highlighted here, and this should be the full account.

Hmm ... will the data type  long long  then at least be supported there?

I made a very short test of this C++ by compiling an ANSI C program source, but stopped,
when I experienced that UINT_MAX == USHRT_MAX as if still working for 16 Bit, a macro
ULLONG_MAX could not be found at all, moreover.

Some things seem to have been solved better already within the latest Turbo C++.
So where progress concerning such basics could be found?

Delphi defaults to a 32-bit signed int, but it has had support for signed 64-bit integers - if I understand you correctly - since at least version 6. There is no unsigned 64-bit int, though, at least not up to D2009.

(No idea if C++ Builder is any different in this regard, though.)

So... it's a 2010 release, and full unicode support is a new feature? No 64bit support? And not even unsigned 64bit integers? This is a joke, isn't it? smiley

Well, they've apparently fixed bugs in generics, too smiley

One worthwhile feature in 2010 is the significantly expanded RTTI. It's supposed to be on par with .net reflection now. But yeah, what's called RAD Stuidio 2010 should really have been a hotfix for 2009.

Glimpsing over the feature list, imho it should have been somewhere between 2005 and 2008 :]
