Hello together!

A little entry about some details of Delphi x64 I stumbled on today:


Most notable:

 > As speculated, the Tag property will become a NativeInt.

// didn't we have a discussion about this a few days ago?

 > So, Extended = Double.

// how is this in FPC? Extended is just not available on x86_64, or? 
(well... I don't use Extended anyway ^^)

 > Type sizes for 64: SizeOf(Integer)=4, 

// they needed to call it NativeInt, didn't they? They couldn't have 
gone with PtrInt -.-


PS: I've not posted this to lazarus-other, cause I'm not subscribed there.
