RAD Studio XE5 Delphi and C++ Builder versions of Mitov Software's LabPacks

  Dear Customers,

Embarcadero has recently released RAD Studio XE5 with Android support.

We are proud to announce that we are in process of porting a number of our libraries to support Android. This is a slow and lengthy process, and as result we probably will delay official RAD Studio XE5 release until we have sufficiently completed the Android work.

In the mean time however we will make prereleases  available for RAD Studio XE5 tested under Windows. The prereleases will be carefully tested and as stable as official releases, however the documentation for them will not be updated before the official release is ready.

Also unless otherwise stated they will not be properly tested for older versions of RAD Studio and we do not recommend installing them in any other version than XE5. They will be both tested in the Delphi and C++ Builder personalities.

Here is the first such build for RAD Studio XE5:

The libraries are tested and work well both in Delphi and C++ Builder XE5.

Under C++ Builder when using Fire Monkey there are some problems however. Up to C++ Builder XE5 using VCL code in FireMonkey application was acceptable. In C++ Builder XE5 any attempt to use any VCL code appears to cause problems in FireMonkey, and since some of the components still have built-in VCL dialogs this is causing issues to the C++ Builder personality. This is not a problem in Delphi only in C++ Builder wen using FireMonkey. Once we complete the Android migration, this problem should also be addressed.

We are sorry for the inconvenience! We are working hard to address it as soon as possible!

With best regards,
   Boian Mitov
