Delphi Haven – Rather belatedly, given the code has been sitting in the SVN trunk for many months, I’ve finalised a new ‘stable’ release of my image metadata reading/writing library, CCR Exif (despite its name, it has some support for IPTC and XMP metadata too). If people using it have been ...

Shh!!!

Delphi Haven – Between you and me, I’ve noticed the XE3 FMX demos are up on SourceForge (or at least, were when I last looked!). Actions are in (hurrah!), though the lack of a demo implies frames still aren’t (boo!). A few extra properties on things like TForm look promising in a small-but-useful kind ...
