Yesterday and the day before, I was been the presenter for the RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo Live Preview in Rome and Milan. There were a lot of interested people. As we all know, the Linux support was really awaited for the last 15 years or so (since the kylix time frame) all this interesting was awaited.
During the event I talk about some of the Windows 10 additions already present in the last versions and then I focused the biggest part of the “show” on the Linux support. I come with a couple of virtual machine; the first with Windows 10 and the last beta version of RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo and the second with an Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS. The audience has been really excited about all the possibilities. Now you can deploy your Delphi code as console applications or Apache modules into your Linux box. At the time I’m writing the officially supported distributions are Ubuntu 10.x LTS and RedHat Enterprise 7, but the binaries should works also in other “similar” distribution (for instance I plan to test ASAP a Debian server).
At the end of the events there’s been the prize draw for a total value of 20K euros more or less.
Here’s some photos of the Rome event.

RAD Studio 10.2 Tokyo is a really promising release. Considering the current subscription model and all the new features that can be added in a relatively short amount of time, I think that we will see a lot of new development in the Linux and mobile area in not too much time.
See you soon.
