10.3 Rio - Release 1 includes the following new features, enhancements, and bug fixes: New features in 10.3.1
Expanded support for iOS 12 and iPhone X series devices. RAD Server Console UI redesign and migration to the Ext JS framework (available via GetIt). Improved FireDAC support for Firebird 3.0.4 and Firebird embedded. HTTP and SOAP Client Library Enhancements on Windows. Two new IDE productivity tools: Bookmarks and Navigator (available via GetIt). Bookmarks extends the IDE’s previous marking of locations in the code editor. A single shortcut creates a new bookmark, and bookmarks in the current and all files are shown in a docked window, with syntax highlighting and contextual information about the bookmark, such as which method it’s in. It also supports caret bookmarks, a stack of locations you can jump backwards by pressing Escape. Navigator allows you to quickly jump to any location in your unit through intelligent search for Delphi. Press Ctrl+G and start typing, and go to the uses clause, any method, a property, a property’s backing fields or methods, and any other code element. It also adds a minimap for both Delphi and C++, a side panel like a scrollbar showing a miniature version of your code. 15 new custom VCL Windows and Multi-Device FireMonkey styles (Available via GetIt). 10 new VCL Windows styles that users can apply to their Windows applications. This includes a number of Win 10 specific themes and VCL styles that match the new FMX styles. Also included is a set of 5 different FireMonkey multi-device styles with theming support for Windows, macOS, Android, and iOS. Many of the styles come in different color variants. Bitmap Style Designer templates are also included.
Enhancements included in 10.3.1 Android
Android SDK and NDK integration has been improved. Some of the settings for the Android manifest have been updated to better support different versions of Android. Fixes to TMapView alignment and TWebBrowser drawing on Android. Selecting the Android SDK/NDK at installation time in C++Builder will now automatically patch the SDK’s string.h to address a compile error. Improvements to intents on Android. RAD Studio applications can now link to FireBase SDKs. Resolved IBLite compilation and deployment issues. Worked on platform and styled edit box quality.
Native resolution support for iPad Pro. Improvements to notification support. Enhancements with keyboard handling for TEdit. Edit controls now work as expected after showing and hiding other forms.
Some Application options pages were missing for C++Builder. Resolved a crash in the GetIt Package Manager when using a non-styled IDE. Addressed an IDE crash when parsing concatenated strings spanning many lines in Delphi source files. Currently, the IDE will handle up to about 250 lines; there is a registry key to increase the size if your code uses more lines (see below). Re-enabled all DbExpress drivers in the Database Explorer pane. A number of fixes for the behavior of IDE toolbars and layout, especially when changing the desktop layout or minimizing and maximizing the IDE. The Options dialog no longer allows disabling IDE styling, because this is a non-supported configuration. The registry keys can still be used.
C++17 Clang Win32 compiler
Multiple issues are resolved in the RTL and compiler, including known causes for an error message “cannot compile this 'this' captured by SEH yet” in a __finally block, and other key issues.
Runtime Libraries (RTL, VCL, FireMonkey)
TStringList.IndexOfName now correctly supports Sorted = True. Resolved issue with adding image to photo album action. Several JSON-related fixes and improvements.
HTTP and SOAP
The HTTP client library now offers support for compression decoding, and this feature is now also avail
