Delphi 2005 update coming...

Just wanted to let you know that we do have an update underway that will improve memory usage among some other issues that have been raised post ship. Thank you for bringing some of these to our attention, your early feedback has been very helpful. We expect to have this update available after Thanksgiving, sometime in early December. Although there are some common issues raised here in these forums, the majority of early customer feedback has been that Delphi 2005 is a high quality Delphi release with an amazing feature set. With more features than we ever put in a single release, there will inevitably be some bugs that come up that we need to fix and we're focused on keeping Delphi 2005 quality level up to it's feature level - the highest ever :o)

Thanks again for your feedback and happy holidays,

Coming soon! BDNradio: LIVE from Scotts Valley, CA

We've done a bunch of successful private partner briefings in the past, and now is the time to start doing some in public for all your listening pleasures.

We're planning to cover a bunch of different topics this quarter for both Delphi 2005 and JBuilder 2005. Developer Relations will be the host, and we will be inviting members of the development staff to discuss the areas that they worked on. You will get all your questions answered directly by the awesome talent that wrote the stuff. The events will also of course be archived, so even if you can't be there when it is live, you can listen and enjoy it later on.

To start off, we will need all of your help to do a load test. This is scheduled to happen at 10:00am PST (06:00pm GMT) on Monday November 15th. Stay tuned for more information.

Assuming that the load test goes well (we have no reason to believe it won't, but please help us anyway), the real stuff will start happening on Monday November 22nd at 10:00am PST (06:00pm GMT).
