SamplingProfiler 23.8.21 is now available. This version is all about cosmetic fixes:
- Display Delphi internal version number for unknown Delphi versions instead of defaulting to ‘XE2’
- Replaced old directory browser in search paths dialog
- Minor HDPI fixes
Also the zip only includes the 64bit version now (which should work with 32bit executables).
A new SamplingProfiler v23.4.25 version is now available.
The main highlight of this release is support for HDPI displays, no more blurry text on that 4k monitor!
This is also the first version compiled with Delphi 11.3, which fixed several HDPI issues in the VCL that were holding back HDPI support.
There were also small performance improvements around memory management and caching for up to 10% faster fusion. This version also introduces the use of fused multiply-add CPU instructions (FMA) whenever available, but a the moment with zero improvements unless you have very, very fast main memory.
Latest commits in the DWScript repository bring compatibility with Delphi 11.3 Alexandria.
There were very few changes required, and a couple bugs were fixed in the process. One test (stack overflow) had to be tweaked, apparently the new compiler uses more stack space, which caused one of the unit tests to fail in the “wrong “place.
All in all the 11.3 IDE and compiler appear way more stable, and AVX2/FMA support is nice… hopefully will get support in the CPU debugger as well soon 🙂
