Delphi Blogs of the Week #13

  

Another round of my now bi-weekly list of relevant blog posts about Delphi, RAD Studio, C++Builder and more.
Delphi and XE6

Dmitry has published on his own site a very detailed list of changes, bug fixes, and improvements to FireDAC in XE6. There is much more than in the official product documentation. The article is at www.da-soft.com/anydac/embarcadero-firedac-xe6-released.html

There is an accessibility add on for FireMonkey desktop, as you can read on www.fmxexpress.com/accessibility-functionality-add-on-for-delphi-xe6-firemonkey-on-windows-and-ios/

A long article (much more than a blog post) written by Cary Jensen about “Simplifying LiveBindings Configuration in Mobile Apps Using Frames” is online at caryjensen.blogspot.it/2014/05/simplifying-livebindings-configuration.html

FireMonkey frames and custom styles explored at www.fmxexpress.com/edit-and-store-custom-styles-within-a-tframe-in-delphi-xe5-xe6-firemonkey-on-android-and-ios/

Full Delphi interfaces for different Android SDK versions are now available on GitHub at github.com/FMXExpress/android-object-pascal-wrapper (this is a great contribution by the FMX Express developers for the community)

Sarina discusses the new XE6 tint property for FMX at 
blogs.embarcadero.com/sarinadupont/2014/05/20/customize-your-mobile-ui-in-xe6/

A tip by Jim on using GitHub from Delphi at delphi.org/2014/05/clone-from-github-in-delphi/

Special Links and Blog Posts

Nick’s book has a web site, www.codingindelphi.com/

I was interviewed while in Taiwan, but cannot really read the Chinese text. It’s me in the picture, though. Link is www.ithome.com.tw/pr/87940

The very special blog post of the month might as well be “Why Delphi and why now?” by Steve Peacocke at stevepeacocke.blogspot.it/2014/05/why-delphi-and-why-now.html. Recommended reading for all old-timer Delphi developers, who think of migrating their code (and knowledge).
