Looking for a blocking issue list for Delphi 10.2.1 - what are the issues which stop you from upgrading? I am considering the upgrade of mostly Win64 server side code but I am also keenly interested in mobile dev issues.

I haven't leveraged ISAPI DLLs in a number of years but I am considering their use in an upcoming project. Has much changed in this arena as far as problems debugging/updating the DLLs? One thing is new - I can more easily create a stand alone application for help with debugging - but what about version updates, is there a pattern for that these days? I was debating on having a proxy DLL up front which decides which version to submit the request to.

Windows Movie Maker on Windows 10
Windows Movie Maker, part of the Windows Essentials 2012 package was discontinued long ago by Microsoft, but it still runs fine on Windows 10.  However, you can no longer download the setup file from Microsoft any longer... Since I've looked for this twice ...

Delphi 10.1 Berlin repeated IDE flicker on Windows 10.  I recently updated to Berlin on Windows 10 and the IDE becomes unresponsive for a few seconds while the display flickers while controls are being redrawn.  I've found one reference ( but this is not my issue.  Have others found any workarounds?

Just a shout out to Vincent Parrett at FinalBuilder for customizing some license files for me.  It was certainly not expected to tweak a new purchase on a Sunday, but surely appreciated!  I purchased 6 more licenses for other devs under my account and he individualized them for me after the fact.  Amazing service.  BUY FINALBUILDER.
