The Update 1 for Delphi XE5 and C++Builder XE5 has been released.
This update touch some areas like FireDAC, FireMonkey, Debugger, IDE and mainly ClientDataSet. Below a list of fixes related to ClientDataSet, which I consider critical errors and a blocker for anyone that was looking to migrate to XE5.

That’s is, have fun.
Web Service for Android also big issue need to be solved soon before many embarcadero customers disappointed to purchase it soon…:)
but they still did not fixed the broken compiler, which in my eyes are more EMBT-only technology than any library including even midas. So it should have more priority, as no one outside EMBT can make patches for it.
XE5 Beta 1 is out. Now let’s wait for the next 3-4 betas before Emb starts again with XE6 Alpha.
@eko, what is the problem with web services on android? Im running web services on iOS fine. Can you explain please?
Yes, this was a show stopper for us. We are glad that this is solved now. We already tested it, now everything works fine again.
