Delphi 10.4.2: Improvements for Microsoft Remote Desktop sessions
It is no secret that I like the latest Delphi release quite a lot. Embarcadero posted one of my quotes on Twitter…
I added one more thought to that statement which had to be cut off as the badge did not offer enough space. In addition to compiler speed and a responsive IDE, the IDE now can also handle being used in a Microsoft Remote Desktop connection. Sometimes, I am on my Mac when testing applications or my laptop when out of the office. Sometimes, the IDE did not handle the resolution change caused by Remote Desktop and became unresponsive. That thankfully is a thing of the past. I have used Delphi inside a Remote Desktop session from my laptop for quite a while the other night. I also would like to mention that the laptop used a different resolution and pixel density which also was problematic before. With 10.4.2, you are ready for all that and it works just fine!
One positive result of this is that I am able to access Delphi through a remote connection when I am outside sitting on the patio writing my upcoming Delphi book in the evenings. I always have to look something up that I do not recall right away and now it is possible again to access my office desktop.
