It seems Embarcadero is staying with Qt and CLX.
According to the following web page:
About Delphi 2011:
According to Michael Rozlog [Delphi product manager]
in his Delphi Podcast interview:
Fulcrum (Codename for Delphi 2011) is currently in private beta phase,
and it will be available for public beta testing at the end of March or April.
The new cross-platform framework will be a sequel to CLX (based on QT
framework) which was available back in Delphi 6, and Delphi 7. The
main differences are:
1 - There will only one Windows IDE available. For Linux and Mac,
you will have to use either another computer connected to
your development machine, or virtualization. According to
Miachael Rozlog, the Delphi debugger will automatically
switch to Remote Debugger,
and the executable will be run on the target machine, and
you can debug it just like your Windows based projects, only
the forms will be shown in the target machine
(or your virtualization software window), not your
development machine desktop.
2 - Unlike Borland era, in Embarcadero the Linux-version (name
unknown yet) part will have a dedicated development team.
3. There is no guarantee that 64-bit support will be available in
In this release we will see the new compiler which should provide a
plug-able architecture for supporting more platforms in future, better
optimized code, more support for new language features, an upgraded
compatibility between Delphi and C++ Builder code, and a unified DCU
