The new Delphi XE2 has been introduced. I have already purchased a copy and installed this.

XE2 introduces several new things of which the most important are:
- Firemonkey components
- compiling for Mac OSX and iOS, next to Win32 and Win64

To be able to compile for OSX or iOS you need to use the Firemonkey components, but with this you will be able to share the same code for all these OS's.

I wonder when the new installers of GeoPack will be available for XE2 and if you would consider porting the whole set of your components to work in co-operation with Firemonkey. (Will be a lot of work, but will open up the use of a whole new world of possibilities, like easy birdseyes view of the Geomaps !)

We are definitely looking into porting the SDL Suite to be compatible with Firemonkey. However, this will take time, and I cannot promise any release date.

I downloaded the new XE2 set and when I have all collected all XE2 versions of other components we use I will start to move my whole project to Delphi XE2.

We experimented a bit with Firemonkey already, but can tell you that porting VCL code to this is not easy and it might require also some updates of Firemonkey as well. Firemonkey is a great way to go, but we must not forget that this is only the first release.....

Greetings,

Jaap
