Hello C++ Developers. Did you know there is a superb site where you can learn how to program in C++ for free? If you have an interest in using C++ to write apps whether your interests are Windows development or cross-platform apps for mobile devices then you should visit LearnCPlusPlus.org for all the latest tips, tricks, free C++ tutorials and our complete guide to programming in C++.
Do you want to learn what’s coming next in C++ Builder?
This week we heard some really great news about the new C++ Builder. Actually, personally, I was waiting this news for a long time. According to post by David Millington, Embarcadero wants to include to inject C++ Builder with some amazing features; CLANG v15, support for C++20 and a lot of the upcoming C++23 standard features, Win64 primary OS, with Win32 and others may follow, new improvements to code completion, integration of the much-loved Visual Assist C++ navigation and refactoring, and more. Please read this post for further details:
I see that a lot of C++ Builder developers are excited by the latest C++ Builder news, and I am really excited too. The new features are really great!
Note that, few weeks ago, Embarcadero also announced the release of RAD Studio 11 Alexandria Release 3, also known as RAD Studio 11.3, along with Delphi 11.3 and C++Builder 11.3. This release is focused on quality and improvements, building on the great new features in RAD Studio 11 Alexandria three previous releases.

C++11 introduces the possibility of Delegating Constructors (aka Constructor Delegation) that can be used by C++ compilers in 2023. In the Constructor Delegation feature, class constructors can be invoked within other constructors of the same class. This is a very useful feature that helps programmers to write fewer lines and more expressive code. Constructor Delegation reduces the repetitive code by adding a function that does all of the validation, in this method one constructor could delegate some of the work to another construction method. Here is the first post about Constructor Delegation, https://learncplusplus.org/what-are-delegating-constructors-in-modern-c/
The speed of communications is rapidly increasing and new advances in the underlying technology happen with increasing frequency. One of the oldest and maybe one of the most used types of connections in the world is the TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol) connection. This protocol is used to enable end-to-end data connections. It is a standard that specifies how data should be packaged, addressed, transmitted, routed, and received. With the C++ programming language, it is easy to develop Server (back-end) and Client (front-end) applications that make use of these kinds of standard protocols. In the next post, we explain how to create TCP/IP Server and Client applications in C++ Builder. https://learncplusplus.org/how-to-create-tcp-ip-server-and-client-connections-in-c-builder/
The C++11 standard introduced alignment support as one of the many features of the C++ programming language that can be used with the newest C++ compilers today. One of the new features of this support was an align
std::aligned_storage that is used to provide the nested type which can be used as an uninitialized storage for any object whose size is at most given object size by the alignment size requirement. In the next post, we explain how we can use
aligned_storage in Modern C++. https://learncplusplus.org/what-is-aligned_storage-in-modern-c/
The other feature of this alignment support was an align
std::aligned_union that is used to provide a nested type that can be used as an uninitialized storage for any object whose size is at most the object size stated by the alignment size requirement. In the next post, we explain how we can use
align_union in Modern C++. https://learncplusplus.org/what-is-aligned_union-in-modern-c/
And, another feature of alignment support was an align
std::aligned_alloc that is used to provide a nested type that can be used as an uninitialized storage for any object whose size is at most the given object size by the alignment size requirement. In the last post, we explain how we can use
aligned_alloc in Modern C++. https://learncplusplus.org/what-is-aligned_alloc-in-modern-c/

C++ Builder is the easiest and fastest C and C++ IDE for building simple or professional applications on the Windows, MacOS, iOS & Android operating systems. It is also easy for beginners to learn with its wide range of samples, tutorials, help files, and LSP support for code. RAD Studio’s C++ Builder version comes with the award-winning VCL framework for high-performance native Windows apps and the powerful FireMonkey (FMX) framework for cross-platform UIs.
There is a free C++ Builder Community Edition for students, beginners, and startups; it can be downloaded from here. For professional developers, there are Professional, Architect, or Enterprise version.
Disclaimer: All new features and improvements discussed in this blog post for future versions of RAD Studio are not committed until completed, and GA released.
