There are many expectations for this release of Delphi. There are many things that people are waiting on the possibility of cross-platform. Let's see if it really is an XE++ or a simple XE+.

Does anyone know how they managed building OSX apps? Are they wrapping some toolkit like with CLX?

 

Fire Monkey! Formerly known as VGScene.

 

It uses a different set of visual controls for creating xplatform apps.

Animations look kind of choppy.

 

Obvious question. Will I be able to recompile my VCL app for OSX? :)

 

Hi

 

No you can not recompile VCL app to OSX, you can recompile it to x64 platform.

For OSX you must be create a new FireMonkey project.

 

 

Best Regards.

Philosophizing a bit. I do not understand why the availability for iOS and not for Linux. In principle, a EditBox, a Label, a Button, etc ... have the same behavior, although the implementation may change slightly from one OS to another. So, I thought they were going to make a Component Abstraction Layer (CAL) with the VCL and would use VGScene to achieve cross-platform applications. Or maybe I'm wrong? I do not know, but even though I read the new features, I feel something is missing there, or maybe I have not seen a full seminar, but is not clear for me why appear FireMonkey and what is the relationgship with VCL. As I understand VCL and FireMonkey are different platforms for building applications in the same IDE.

The answer is simple:

Embarcadero didn't have time to make a cross-platform VCL from scratch.

 

Indeed, it was impossible within given time frames in the roadmap to fulfill this complex task. This was where VGScene came to the scene and saved the day.

I don't think so, i think my only options are £100 upgrade to delphi xe2 starter or £500 upgrade to delpi xe2 pro

 

If you find any info about free upgrades I'd appreciate a heads-up

 

Don't forget that XE2 starter excludes some of the new features such as iOS support. If you need XE2 upgrading to Pro version seems to be a better option.
