IDE Fix Pack 6.3 released

By | June 17, 2018

The new IDE Fix Pack 6.3 adds some IDE fixes and makes DFM reading a little bit faster due to the usage of buffers on the stack instead of the TBytes heap allocations with unnecessary FillChar calls that were introduced with XE3.

The compiler option extension -x-fpr also got a new feature. If a function has stack variables that exceed 4096 bytes, the function prolog that is generated will be up to 3 times faster than the original compiler generated code (RSP-19826).

Furthermore the compiler option extensions are now combined into -x-On options what makes it easier to specify the options because you don’t need to remember all the option names anymore.

-x-O1     Enable options -x-fvs   -x-fpr
-x-O2     Enable options -x-fvs   -x-fpr -x-orc
-x-O3     Enable options -x-fvs=2 -x-fpr -x-orc
-x-Ox     Enable ABI changing optimizations: -x-fvs=2 -x-fpr -x-orc=2 -x-ff

All options are listed in the Readme.txt and can be specified under Project Options/Delphi Compiler/Compiling/Other options/Additional options to pass to the compiler. (Screenshot)
