Improved IDE, Enhanced Productivity
Use RAD on 4k+ Screens!
RAD Studio 11 adds high-DPI support to the IDE, enabling developers to work on larger, high-resolution screens. Full support for the latest 4k+ high-resolution monitors improves daily developer activities with cleaner, sharper fonts and icons, and high-resolution support throughout the IDE windows, including in the VCL and FMX form designers and code editor.
FireMonkey for Windows now uses the same DP model (rather than Pixel model) of all platforms, offering a significant enhancements of the apps rendering on Windows HighDPI and 4K monitors.
Use VCL Styles at Design Time!
VCL Styles now provides design-time support: Prototype stylish UIs even faster by seeing immediately at design-time how your styled forms and controls will look when running.
Viewing at design time how styles will impact the UI at runtime improves the design and testing process for modern UIs. Creating better UIs faster is especially useful when working with per-control styles.
“The new high DPI IDE looks absolutely gorgeous! The great big helper though is the VCL styles design-time support, which makes it a lot easier to see how my apps will actually look and feel at runtime - a really big help for me!”

Be Ready for Windows 11!
Support for Windows 11 provisioning with integrated MSIX generation. WebBrowser component for Windows, with support for both the IE ActiveX and the new Microsoft WebView 2 control (Chromium-based Edge).
Enhanced VCL Form Designer to visually build native Windows applications, with live snap-to hints and layout guidelines. Enhanced Delphi and C++ RTL for 32-bit Windows and 64-bit Windows.
Deploy on M-Series Apple Silicon!
Compile for macOS (M-series Apple Silicon) and use the new universal package for AppStore submission. You can now compile for both existing Intel and new M-series macOS processors (Apple Silicon). Compiling for the newest processor versions enables the fastest performance across all platforms, and supports universal packaging for the macOS app store.
“With RAD Studio 11 it is possible to compile binaries for macOS ARM. Since the new M1 processor is incredibly fast it is more than important to create native apps for it. That's why RAD Studio 11 is a must have for every Delphi Developer!
