Having looked at the new features of the IDE in Delphi 2009, I can now get back to the language. We have already seen there are many new features related with UnicodeString and AnsiString support, but the compiler has many more improvements.
With generic and anonymous methods (or closures) appearing for the first time in the language, Object Pascal takes its most significant leap forward since Delphi was introduced. That's why there are two full chapters, plus some extra information in a third one, fully devoted to the compiler and the language.
