Last Friday I watched a presentation by David I and Andreano Lanusse on the upcoming Tiburon.
I did not get really excited whit any of the features discussed.These additions – VCL enhancements, DataSnap, Generics, Unicode support, ribbon control and etc. – are useful but not earth shattering.
The only featurei in Tiburon that I would consider worth upgrading was Unicode support. In my opinion the Unicode feature was long overdue.
But what about the future? In looking at the Delphi road map I see that Commodore will bring 64 bits to Delphi – cool. But is that all?
Only beyond Commodore I see features that turn my inner geek on. I’m talking about cross compilation and development for PDAs. I favor a future where the OS is irrelevant and I can sell my product to all customers that want to buy it.
But enough about what I think. What would you like to see in the next versions of Delphi?
What do you think is missing on the road map? Please share your opinion with us.
