In the periodic table of the elements, at #9 we find Fluorine. Curiously though the name “Fluorine” is not used (that I am aware of) anywhere in the Elements 9.0 release which dropped this week. But there is plenty of interest in this release, aside from Period Table curios.
Not exactly hot off the presses but some people apparently seem still to be unaware that my suggestion for a Community Edition of Delphi has been picked up (some years later, mind you). Except that it isn’t Embarcadero that have picked it up, but Microsoft.
I recently mentioned that RemObjects have placed their OS X native IDE – a.k.a. Fire – into public beta. I haven’t been using it myself (yet) but have been following developments in the RemObjects Talk forums with interest, and a new feature in the Elements 8.0 compiler (also part of the Fire beta) caught my eye this week.
