The product matrix shows that Firemonkey currently supports iOS 4.2. Apple will be introducing iOS 5 shortly. Will Firemonkey be updated to support newer iOS features periodically (eg., iOS 5 and possibly other things)? Or just once-a-year when Delphi is updated?
Michael Swindell: Yes, since Firemonkey is 1.0 we're going to be updating early, often, and regularly. The first update is well underway, will address a lot of great feedback, and should be out before the end of the month. We are planning updates on a regular cadence, initially several quarterly.
(I'd love to see quarterly updates.)
Michael Swindell: We'll start out updating more often than quarterly, and settle into quarterly updates eventually. Embarcadero is behind FM in a big way, there is a lot of ongoing investment going on into this release, updates, performance enhancements, and future platform/feature support.
