New! Parallelize your 32-bit and 64-bit Windows applications and your iOS, Android, and OS X apps easily
New in RAD Studio XE7! The new Parallel Programming library exponentially increases performance of existing C++ and Object Pascal code by parallelizing threads that can take full advantage of multi-core CPUs. Also, build 64-bit Windows applications with C++ and Object Pascal to take advantage of the latest hardware, access more memory, and push the envelope of performance with the easy to integrate Parallel Programming Library. All Windows technologies are 64-bit enabled, including VCL, FireMonkey, RTL, compilers and debugger, to streamline the migration of existing applications to 64-bit Windows.
Modernize Your VCL Applications for Windows 7 and 8.1
With Windows XP at end-of-life, Windows 7 and 8.1 represent the lion's share of supported Windows desktop installations. It's the perfect time to modernize VCL applications and take advantage of new features and styles in Windows 7 and 8.1. RAD Studio XE7 delivers the features you need to modernize your existing Windows VCL apps including taskbar and jumplist components, Windows 7 and 8.1 Modern UI styles, and Surface Pro tablet support including VCL sensors components.
