Abstract: Features and Technologies Expected in 2014 and beyond
Disclaimer: The information included in this roadmap does not constitute, and should not be construed as, a promise or commitment by Embarcadero to develop, market or deliver any particular product, feature or function. The timing and content of Embarcadero’s future product releases could differ materially from the expectations discussed here.

During 2013, the primary goal of the RAD Studio team was to deliver native ARM compilers and libraries targeting the iOS and Android mobile platforms, which we achieved in the XE4 and XE5 versions. Specifically, we have released Delphi for both iOS (XE4) and Android (XE5) and C++Builder for iOS (XE5 Update 2). Mobile support includes the FMX platform, the familiar RTL, database access components (now including FireDAC), and on-device databases. In addition, developers using Delphi and C++Builder can target Mac OS X with the FMX platform and Windows (both Win32 and Win64) with either the FMX platform or the VCL library.
Here is a summary of the key features added to RAD Studio in 2013:
The main themes for RAD Studio in 2014 are the additions of C++ for Android, quality, performance, and architectural improvements, an enhanced single-source multi-device designer and runtime, and enhancements of the remoting and multi-tier architecture for enterprise applications. We also anticipate delivering several new VCL components and features.
Here are some of the technologies and features we are working on and expect to release over two major releases during 2014:
There are other platforms and features we are actively researching and investigating, and other technologies under evaluation that are not part of the current 2014 roadmap.
Updated from the original March 2014 version to note features delivered in XE6.
