I got an email this morning from Embarcadero, a pretty straightforward marketing letter that probably everyone on SA for Delphi received. But one thing caught my eye:

That’s not particularly unexpected, since that’s when the new releases tend to come out. But it does confirm one thing I thought was kind of strange when I got the DelphiLive! 2011 Call For Papers email a few weeks ago.
The conference is scheduled for mid-September, which means that for the first time, it’s going to be held after the year’s new Delphi release instead of before it. That’s a pretty sharp contrast with last year, where the keynote address was basically the official RAD Studio XE release announcement…
