Eric Grange (resurrector of the increasingly interesting looking DWS project) recently posted about a new idea he has had for the DWS engine, which in turn gave me an idea, or rather, prompted me to come up with what I think may be a new spin on an old one.
A welcome new language feature in Delphi 2010 is the introduction of attributes, as previously found in .NET languages. However I am slightly disappointed that the language implementation is also very close to that found in C# and other .NET languages and not more in keeping with what I would consider The Spirit Of Delphi.
The first two canned videos from last weeks preview of Tiburon have appeared on the CDN site. Of the two, one covers some new language features in C++ Builder, but the one of most interest to Delphi developers I think is the one that demonstrates some of the VCL improvements and changes. See if you can spot Nick Hodge’s deliberate mistake. At least, I hope it was deliberate. 😉 More videos and sessions should be coming online soon.
