Delphi Developer Days 2013 - Cary Jensen and Bob Swart
Cary Jensen announced at CodeRage 7 and on his blog that as of the 2013 edition of the Delphi Developer Days, I, Bob Swart will be joining Cary Jensen in presenting these days. I'm thrilled to work together with Cary Jensen on Delphi Developer Days; we've worked together in the past on magazine articles and Delphi conferences, and I've been a guest speaker at Delphi Developer Days for a few years already, so we're confident that the upcoming Delphi Developer Days 2013 will be as good and enjoyable as ever.

Embarcadero has publised the RAD Studio Mobile roadmap, covering what's in development (integrated C++ and Delphi native ARM toolchains, native iOS and Android platform support, FireMonkey Mobile Framework and Mobile Form Designers, among others), when we can expect things (Mobile Beta Program, iOS final and Android final), and how we can expect to purchase it (part of RAD Studio Enterprise subscription and/or low prince add-on).
Note that all XE3 customers can participate in the RAD Studio Mobile beta (you can apply by clicking on the "my eligible field tests" link on the Embarcadero Developer Network.

2010/08/12 - New RAD Studio Roadmap
An updated RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder Roadmap is published on the Embarcadero Developer Network.
2010/05/10 - RAD Studio Roadmap
Embarcadero has just published the new RAD Studio Roadmap. This Roadmap includes information on the upcoming Delphi Fulcrum, supporting both Windows and Mac OS X application development, Delphi Wheelhouse (adding Linux support), the 64-bits Compiler Preview (early 2011), Delphi Commodore (the full 64-bits version) and project Chromium.
2009/05/18 - Delphi Commodore Main Themes
Delphi Commodore is the codename for an upcoming version of Delphi with 64-bit native development as main theme:
2009/01/07 - The Future of the Delphi Compiler
Nick Hodges has published an article on Developer Network about the future of the Delphi Compiler. In this article, Nick talks about the Compiler Front End (the part that defines what the language is), with the idea to create a new Front End to offer a choice between a new, non-legacy syntax and the older way of coding (read the article to example of legacy syntax). New code would have to be put in a new type of code module (so it looks like there would be no mixing of code, although you may be able to use both kinds of modules in your projects).
Nick also talks about the Compiler Back Ends (one for Delphi, one for C++) which currently produce 32-bit binaries for Windows. A new Back End would be able to produce 64-bit for Windows, and should be shared by both Delphi and C++, and "a bit more flexible with respect to what architecture it targets" (or so Nick writes).
Doing a new Compiler Front End and unified Back End (for both Delphi and C++Builder) will take time. The team plans to release a preview of the 64-bit compiler (just the compiler, not the IDE) in mid-2009, and the final 64-bit version of Delphi should be ready min-2010.
