Let's share the knowledge with your friends

Hotfix 2 for RAD Studio 2010 (for Delphi 2010 and C++Builder 2010) is now available at http://cc.embarcadero.com/item/27671

Description of updates that are included in this hotfix:

  • This fix restores Type Library options for “SafeCall function mapping” and “Source Refreshing” in the Delphi Options dialog.
  • This fixes an issue in CPP32.EXE when the C++ source file that is printed in the pre-processed file is always lowercased if the drive that CPP32.EXE is located on has a volume name of drive longer than 9 characters. With this fix, the original case will be preserved.
  • This fix is for an issue in DataSnap communication when using filters.

    Seriously? whiskey tango foxtrot territory – That’s bizarre no matter how I think about it.

    Anyone care to venture a situation where the forced lowercasing would be helpful – even for debugging territory?

    Extra credits for explaining why a compiler should look at volumn name in ANY event (with perhaps the sole exception of OSes like Amiga that can refer to media by volume name instead of mount point/drive leter) (** Don’t forget, it apparently did not care about the source code’s location, but rather just the location of the compiler itself!)
