Embarcadero has also opened up the code behind its Subversion support in RAD Studio XE. The idea, said Rozlog, is to give developers the ability to see how the platform handles source-code management, and to allow developers to write their own SCM tools on top of the IDEs.

Finally, Rozlog said RAD Studio XE will include a new system for helping developers control the build process. By choosing from a list of build functions, he said, developers using RAD Studio XE will be able to point and click their way through the process of creating complex build scripts.
