Without a doubt, this is a difficult time for all of us. If you or your business has been impacted by the pandemic, please contact us and let us know how we can help.

Despite having to get used to remote working and virtual meetings, our Delphi team have managed to provide you some great new features and enhancements in the new version, and I am pleased to announce the immediate availability of DevExpress VCL Subscription v20.2, our suite of controls for building effective Windows apps with RAD Studio, using either Delphi or C++Builder.

This release ships with numerous new features including:

  • the beta for a new Gantt control
  • replacements for the standard (yes, and boring!) open/save file dialogs that use your selected theme
  • various UX enhancements, including smooth scrolling in various controls, and padding for our in-place editors
  • a new display style for Filter Criteria in our grid, treelist, and vertical grid controls
  • …and much more

For a complete list of what’s new in this v20.2 release, please go to this page, and select the VCL link. Even easier, you can always navigate to devexpress.com/new and see what’s new in the latest version, whichever version number that happens to be.

As usual, we’ve listed the Resolved Issues introduced in this release (follow that link to the version history page, make sure you clear any filters that may be set, and then select VCL, as well as “Resolved Issues”). That page also enables you to review the changes we’ve made from any release to any other.

For every major release, no matter how hard we try and minimize the impact, some new features and enhancements are bound to cause a few breaking changes. You can see those from that same version history page: just select “Breaking Changes” instead.

I pretty much say something like this with every major release: we would not be able to produce and release such robust and full-featured controls, features, and enhancements without the invaluable help of our customers. By reviewing comments and support tickets, and contacting customers directly, we find that we can more easily focus on providing what our customers want from our products going forward. Also, we’ve been concentrating on publishing relevant posts on what we are doing, posts detailing various tips and tricks, and posts on how we aim to move forward. My strong recommendation is to monitor our community site for these helpful posts.

I’d like to thank everyone who provided feedback on our products throughout this year, who used and tested the v20.2 beta we produced and provided information on the issues they found, and, of course, to all our customers who use our products every day in their applications. We are confident that the new features and enhancements in v20.2 will strengthen and validate your trust in our products. Thank you, it is much appreciated.

Hello Julian,

  It's 2020 and we see DirectX support only for 2 components!

  The Tile & Gantt DirectX perfomance is awesome compared to other components with slow GDI.


Thank you
