Users of ModelMaker may appreciate the availability of a Modelmaker IDE Integration Expert for Delphi 10.3 Rio.
Note: ModelMaker is a separate Native Delphi Visual modeling and Refactoring tool based on UML™ 2 technology. Not to be confused with MMX Code Explorer.
The expert requires the latest version 11.11 of ModelMaker with support for Delphi 10.2 Tokyo.
As there is and will be no new version of ModelMaker with direct Delphi 10.3 Rio support, this expert exposes itself as a Delphi 10.2 Tokyo expert. Keep this in mind when you select the Primary IDE to connect with in ModelMaker. In case you have Delphi 10.2 Tokyo and Delphi 10.3 Rio open simultaneously, ModelMaker cannot distinguish those and picks one of them. This is the same as having two instances of Delphi 10.2 Tokyo open at once.

There is a new bugfix release available for MMX Code Explorer. Users still on Delphi 10.2 Tokyo releases below 10.2.3 having difficulties to install version 14 may give this one a try.
After apparently no critical show-stoppers were found during the beta phase, the new release of MMX version 14 is now officially available.
A list of changes can be found in the Change Log.
Besides the support for Delphi 10.3 Rio perhaps the biggest change is dropping support for oder Delphi versions. Since version 14 MMX will only support Delphi 10 Seattle and higher. For older versions you can still use version 13, which can be found at the MMX download page when clicking on Previous versions.
Dropping support for those older versions was inevitable to assure further development of MMX. It turned out that making things work for those Delphi versions would burn too much valuable time, which I can now dedicate to new features and the extension of existing ones.
In case you didn’t notice, there is a new place where international Delphi developers gather: the English Delphi-PRAXiS.
But wait, it gets better: You will also find a dedicated area for MMX Code Explorer over there: MMX Code Explorer
I really appreciate this offer and thankfully accept it – see you over there…
