Developers can now use Embarcadero's RAD Studio for Windows 10 apps

RAD Studio 10 Seattle has an updated Visual Control Library designed to mesh with the Windows 10 look-and-feel

Embarcadero has updated its RAD Studio integrated development environment to help developers make the most of new features in Windows 10, now that the OS has been installed on more than 75 million devices.

RAD Studio lets developers build C++ or Delphi applications and provides a way to quickly build graphical programs. The company claims over 3 million developers use its software.

The new version supports many of the fresh design styles and new capabilities of Windows 10. It also makes it easy to extend a Windows 10 application to mobile platforms, Mac OS X and Internet of things devices, according to the company.

For Windows 10, Embarcadero has expanded its VCL (Visual Control Library), a set of visual components that can be quickly inserted into applications. New controls were added, and existing controls can be adapted to Windows 10.

The company also updated FireMonkey (FMX), its framework for building cross-platform applications within a single build process to incorporate Windows 10 as well.

It also updated its C++ compiler for rapid development, called Clang, to run on Windows 10.

Beyond support for Windows 10, the new edition of the software can now allot twice as much memory to holding complex software projects. Improvements have also been made to development and testing processes and to the documentation.

For September, Embarcadero is selling RAD Studio 10 Seattle professional edition for US$1,758.60, or as an upgrade for $1,056.60. Enterprise, Ultimate and Architect editions are also available, along with a free trial version.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
