Update from from 2014-03-15 is strongly recommended.

Major changes

  • Fixed critical bug that lead bloated LazyDBP profile and drastically slowed down Lazy Delphi Builder performance
  • Added support for “portable” installations (only working dccXX.exe and Lib folder are required)
  • Delphi XE8 & XE9 support (not tested, may not work when Xe8 & Xe9 will actually be released)
  • Better navigation in build log
  • Over 40 small bugfixes and improvements

Selection wizard (can be opened from files tree with Ctrl+W hotkey). In theory it should help to ease unused files removal, or checking only required. In practice… feedback is highly appreciated.

Lazy Delphi Builder 28-apr-2013

April 28th, 2013 No comments

What’s new (in a nutshell):

  • Delphi XE4 support. And just in case if it will be released in a next few months – I have added Delphi XE5 support
  • Presets. Create presets for output directories, build options, environment variables, and other..
  • LazyDBP and ini files format was changed. From now, lists will be saved as plain lists, without numbers as id. And, btw, all the settings from now are stored in the Data subdirectory. New profile format (v2) is not backward compatible with previous (v1), but you can still save file in previous format using Save as dialog.
  • Multiple expressions support in tree’s filter (via semicolon “;”)
  • Call any custom bat or exe file instead of dcc32.exe. (see item # 9 in changelog)
  • Added Delphi version autodetection algorythm from the filename (see. Check Wizard)
  • New editor for compiler defines.
  • Many improvements and fixes (see the full list in changelog).
