C++ Builder continues to be behind the curve... With its own iOS being Clang 3.5, why are the windows compilers and Android lagging behind?

The most current information I've seen is the 2016 roadmap:

http://community.embarcadero.com/article/news/16211-embarcadero-rad-studio-2016-product-approach-and-roadmap-2

According to that, their goal is to get all platforms up to Clang 3.3
this year.

Thanks, I believe that Seattle is at 3.3. Having 3.4 within this year would be a respectable goal. Going into 2017 with C++14 would be reasonable. Going into 2017 with C++11 is embarrassing. I'm not sure which tools are further behind, but I'm fairly sure VS is already C++14 and looking to be on top of C++17 when released.

I'm looking forward to seeing at least C++14 (Clang 3.4)

Ok, now it is 2017, and we're way behind since VS supports some C++17.

I see that Builder is supposed to introduce C++17 this year, and if clang advert is right version 5.0 is the most recent release. So the roadmap is in-specific regarding the clang version it will support.

Here is a plug for 5.x, what ever is most recent when it ships. Any chance of that?

Because it takes a long time to integrate all of their custom compiler extensions
into CLang, especially the ones needed to handle interactions between C++
and Delphi.
