FireMonkey Linux GUI Support Now Available

June 26th, 2019 Posted by Embarcadero, News No Comment yet

If you are an existing RAD Studio or Delphi Enterprise or Architect customer there is now some very nice additional functionality you can download through GetIt.

Effective today, FMXLinux has been added to the IDE. Not just as a one off, but as an ongoing feature. Not as a feature reduced trial, but the full product!

Ansible 2.8 Released

May 17th, 2019 Posted by DevOps, News, RedHat No Comment yet

Ansible 2.8 has been released. While not as many major features as 2.7, there are an absolute truckload of smaller features, including quite a few focussed on Windows. Some highlights for me:

  • Experimental support for Ansible Collections and content namespacing – Ansible content can now be packaged in a collection and addressed via namespaces. This allows for easier sharing, distribution, and installation of bundled modules/roles/plugins, and consistent rules for accessing specific content via namespaces.
  • Python interpreter discovery, which hopefully will make managing multiple Python versions a bit easier
  • A k8s module defaults group has now been added to reduce the amount of parameters required for multiple k8s tasks. Thank goodness!
  • Added experimental support for connecting to Windows hosts over SSH. This could be really useful, in those circumstances where WinRM isn’t going to fly.

Ansible Tower 3.4 Released

January 18th, 2019 Posted by DevOps, News, RedHat No Comment yet

A new version of Ansible Tower has been released, including some useful features we’ve been looking forward to.

In particular the additions to Workflow look very nice:

  • the Workflow Convergence step which allows you to wait on multiple jobs before continuing should simplify some complex logic you’ve had to embed in your workflows to achieve this previously
  • Nested Workflows promises to allow finer-grained modularity and reusability in Workflows
  • Workflow-level inventory, rather than depending on the job template inventory
  • Workflow Always Job Templates, enables job execution of steps regardless of exit status of the workflow.

There is a more detailed write-up over on the Ansible Blog.

Public Information on Upcoming RAD Studio 10.3 – Updated!

October 30th, 2018 Posted by Embarcadero, News 1 comment

Over the last week or so Embarcadero has started publicly disclosing more information about the next major release of RAD Studio, Delphi and C++Builder, 10.3.

This is usually a pretty good sign that the release is not far away, so we thought we’d  create a single post with links to all the public information that we have, and keep it updated as more is released.

Back in August, Embarcadero updated their Public Roadmap. (Of course, something appearing on the roadmap is not a guarantee it’ll be released when they planned, but it was the best we had to go on, until recently). Here’s what they said about 10.3 at the time: (more…)

Ansible Engine 2.7 Released

October 29th, 2018 Posted by DevOps, News, RedHat No Comment yet

RedHat Ansible Engine 2.7 has been released, bringing with it a bunch of new features including:

  • Speedups on Linux. A new strategy for invoking remote systems is introduced requiring half the threads as previously.
  • Reboot module for Linux – Like the existing win_reboot module for Windows, this allows you to reboot a remote Linux machine and then continue on executing commands once it restarts
  • New keyword ignore_unreachable for plays and blocks. Allows ignoring tasks that fail due to unreachable hosts.
  • File locking feature added, making it possible to gain exclusive access to given file through module_utils.common.file.FileLock
  • A mountain of new modules for:
    • Google Cloud Platform
    • Azure
    • OpenStack
    • VMWare
    • NetApp
    • and plenty more

Potentially breaking changes:

Embarcadero 2018/19 Roadmap Update

August 8th, 2018 Posted by Embarcadero, News No Comment yet

Product management at Embarcadero have published more details of the 2018/19 Roadmap.

Covering topics such as RAD Studio 10.3, codenamed Carnival (hmmm, no prizes for guessing the city name for that release. I guess Wagga Wagga will have to wait for 10.4 maybe?), FireMonkey Native Controls, Platform support, VCL and Windows Changes, RAD Server changes, language and debugger changes and more.

Also pleasing to see mention that they have licensed Andreas Hausladen’s excellent IDE Fix Pack and are rolling more of those fixes into the core product.

The full post is here, and it’s definitely worth a read through if you’re a RAD Studio, Delphi, C++Builder or RAD Server user.
