Create native Windows apps with VCL
Trusted by millions of developers worldwide, the VCL (Visual Component Library) is a set of visual components for rapid development of Windows applications in the Delphi language and standard C++. VCL contains a wide variety of visual, non-visual, and utility classes building GUI, web, database, and console applications. Additions to the VCL in recent versions include new customizable VCL Styles, Windows 8 support, Visual LiveBindings to simplify data connectivity in your apps, and new FireDAC data access components.

Give your apps the Windows 8 look – even on Windows 7, Vista and XP!
Both the RAD Studio XE5 development environment and apps that you create with Delphi will immediately run great on Windows 8. Project templates and the Metropolis UI make it easy to give your apps the Windows 8 modern UI look when running on Windows 8 or when running on earlier versions of Windows, including Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP.
