Navigator and Bookmarks for RAD Studio 10.2 are coming

Antialiased images on the Delphi splash screen

How do you have nice-looking icons on the Delphi / C++Builder IDE splash screen? As regular readers of my blog or users of my plugins know, I care about details and appearance a lot. This is visible in the visual style of my plugins, but also carries through to the source code or design. The […]
