Embarcadero Technologies, a provider of software solutions for application and database development, has acquired Raize Components. Along with the acquisition, Embarcadero is introducing new releases of CodeSite and Konopka Signature VCL Controls, as Embarcadero add-on products for developers.

As Windows 10 is set to be released tomorrow, “The acquisition of Raize products and technology reinforces Embarcadero’s continued commitment to Delphi and C++Builder Windows developers and the popular VCL framework that powers millions of Windows applications today,” commented Michael Swindell, senior vice president of products at Embarcadero Technologies.

“With the release of Windows 10 tomorrow, it’s the perfect time for developers to be thinking about new and expanded Windows development as Microsoft brings Windows to more form factors and extends it with Bluetooth LE, IoT, and mobile support. Developers can seize the opportunity to build the UI/UX for connected apps that are automatically styled for Windows 10 by using Konopka Signature VCL Controls,” added John “JT” Thomas, senior director of application development products at Embarcadero.

Embarcadero CodeSite is a developer logging solution for Delphi, C++Builder and Visual Studio that helps developers debug deployed Windows applications. Konopka Signature VCL Controls is a complete Windows UI component solution designed to help Delphi and C++Builder developers boost Windows application UI capability and ease-of-use.

“Even in beta, Windows 10 has been a hit with end users and developers. This resurgence in Windows interest is driving demand for both new applications and updates to millions of existing Windows-based solutions, creating new opportunities for Windows developers,” said Swindell. “The introduction of Konopka Signature VCL Controls puts the best Windows UI capabilities in the hands of Delphi and C++Builder developers at the opportune time to refresh their Windows applications. Raize software components have long been considered the highest quality Windows UI controls available to developers.”

Konopka Signature VCL Controls

According to Embarcadero, Konopka Signature VCL Controls enable the quick design of modern, sophisticated user interfaces for Windows applications. With a suite of over 200 Windows UI controls designed to make applications more intuitive and visually stunning, Delphi and C++Builder developers can modernize and simplify every Windows user experience. With full VCL Styles support developers can deliver custom and modern Windows 10 applications with ease. With more than 100 custom property editors simplifying Windows UI design and development, developers can now build sophisticated user interfaces in less time with less effort. Konopka Signature VCL Controls set the bar for quality and ease-of-use in Windows UI development.

CodeSite

In addition, the CodeSite Logging System gives VCL, FireMonkey and .NET developers deeper insights into how their live code is executing, enabling them to locate problems more quickly and ensure their application is running correctly. CodeSite's logging classes let developers capture information while their code executes, and then send that information to a live display or to a log file. Both styles of logging - live logging and file logging - can be performed locally or remotely. CodeSite supports the latest development frameworks and integrated development environments (IDEs) including Embarcadero’s RAD Studio and Microsoft’s Visual Studio.

Licenses for CodeSite and Konopka Signature VCL Controls with an annual maintenance subscription are available immediately from Embarcadero and Embarcadero partners.

The free Windows 10 VCL Style from Embarcadero can be downloaded from the Registered RAD Studio XE8 Users download page at www.embarcadero.com/general/upgrade-and-registered-users-download-center.
