Whats new in FM2/XE3
Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to attend the XE3 World Tour because of family committments. As a result, I have registered to attend David I’s Lunch and Learn webinar in order to validate my decision that XE3 holds insufficient improvements to recommend an upgrade purchase. I wonder what David I is serving up for lunch….
I also thought I would visit the What’s New in FM2 web page to investigate items I might want to ask questions about. The first one that comes to mind is, “Why is Interbase XE3 included in whats new in FM2?” Surely EMBT knows about programming rules such as the separation of concerns….so why is the Data Access Layer part of whats new in the Presentation or User Interface Layer?
Also, why is it FM2? I would interpret that as not version 2 of FireMonkey which incidentally uses the FMX namespace (great idea using consistent nomenclature), but FM squared! I am really looking forward to seeing the exponential improvements in FireMonkey I must have missed them when I read through the XE3 feature matrix….
