With the upcoming release of our new C++Builder compiler for 64-bit Windows (will have C++11 standard support), Embarcadero Technologies continues our commitment for the C, C99 and C++ languages that started on May 13, 1987 with the first release of Turbo C version 1.0. The C++Builder 64-bit Windows compiler is coming soon.
For the past 25+ years, we have continued to innovate with industry leading development environments, compilers, tools, run-time libraries and tool chains. Today and into the future, Embarcadero is investing even more in the future of development with next generation compilers for Intel and ARM processors, new tool chains and enhanced component libraries and run-time libraries. Embarcadero also uses C and C++ internally in our database tools, InterBase, C++Builder and other tools.
Today, C++Builder XE3 supports building Windows and Mac OS X applications with one codebase. Using FireMonkey FM2, the business application platform, you can build visually stunning enterprise class and ISV packaged applications. As detailed in our RAD Studio Mobile Roadmap, Embarcadero is focused on the C++ 2011 (C++11) language standard and also on multi-platform application development.
The versions and editions of C and C++ for the past 25+ years include:
Time Line of Innovation
A lot of innovation, hard work, brilliant team members, company commitment and a community of customers have been a part of our 25+ years of building compilers, libraries, tools and development environments. Some of the C++ compiler and tool engineers are still working at Embarcadero today while others have moved on to help companies in other parts of our industry (but they will be forever part of our alumni, family and spirit). We also have a great ecosystem of technology partners and industry luminaries that continue to help us move forward.
To understand the depth and breadth of our years of innovation, let’s take a quick look at how we started and how we continue to deliver great developer tools today.
C++Builder “The Next Generation”
The upcoming release of our C++Builder 64-bit compiler for Windows includes a new compiler that supports the C, C99 and C++2011 languages, component model (properties, methods, events), enhanced run time type information (RTTI) and runtime libraries (Standard C++ library, BOOST libraries, Visual Component Library and FireMonkey). We will continue our investment in compiler and tool technology to support future Intel and ARM processors and additional operating system and device platforms including iOS, Android Linux and Windows RT.
