All Windows technologies are 64-bit enabled included FireMonkey, VCL, RTL, the Delphi compiler and debugger streamlining the migration of existing VCL applications to 64-bit.

Deliver rich applications to Windows, Mac and mobile

Delphi XE2 with the new FireMonkey application platform enables you to compile natively to Windows, Mac and iOS. Your applications take full advantage of the power and speed of the CPU and GPU.

Create visually stunning and interactive applications

Quickly build FireMonkey applications that are visually spectacular, highly interactive and data rich for PCs, Macs and mobile devices. Deliver rich business applications that engage your users with an immersive, interesting, and interactive application experience.

Bring new style to your VCL applications

Delphi XE2 introduces VCL Styles, enabling you to apply a custom look and feel to your VCL applications. Styles are applied to your existing components and UI elements so it's easy to get a new look without swapping out components. Choose from the included, professionally designed styles or use the VCL Style Designer to customize or create your own.

Put your data and logic in the cloud

Delphi XE2 includes expanded cloud computing integration with new data and deployment options. The included cloud API supports data storage and access to blobs, message queues and tables on Windows Azure as well as Amazon Simple Queue Services, Simple DB, and Simple Storage Service.
