Announced externally, yes, but I cannot find any mention of it on Embarcadero's websites, or in their online store, or anywhere yet.

Thanks for the update!

Reading the feature matrix, I saw that, among many things, in the Starter Edition, International Development
has some missing features :( and also there's no integration with TeeChart :shock: , although Indy is there.

Also, it's interesting to note that the Starter FAQ says (http://www.embarcadero.com/products/delphi/starter-faq)
Starter FAQ wrote:Can I upgrade from Starter to a higher edition?

Yes. As a Starter edition user, you're eligible for a discount on Professional, Enterprise and
Architect edition products. You can open your Starter edition projects in any higher edition.
:idea: Well, $200 for a Starter + $500 for an upgrade to C++ Builder XE Pro adds up to $700,
which is $200 cheaper than going directly for a new user license of Builder XE Pro ($900). :D

Was all excited when I saw this but discovered it is only for Windows 32. Thought I could justify spending $200.00 but a little disappointed after seeing it won't create a 64 bit app.

Not dinging Embarcadero am sure the full version is worth the cost, just can't justify it for what I need to do.

The above data is a bit dated. They are now taking orders for XE3 which does 32- and 64-bit.

Only Delphi supports 64-bit development. C++Builder does not support it just yet. That is coming later.
