Help Update for XE3

In the vein of catching up on last week’s news, I notice that there is a replacement for the Delphi XE3 and C++Builder XE3 (and RAD Studio XE3) help system available. It’s marked as Help Update 1, but the instructions require you to remove the original help before installing this whopping 908MB download.

This full help replacement has a bunch of corrections and updated pages as well as new tutorial sections.

I’ll doubtless install this update, but to be honest I usually forget to use the installed help these days, after being so frequently disappointed by it during the Delphi 8/2005/2006 era. Generally I tend to go straight to the online documentation site if I have an Internet connection, which I get on pretty well with these days.
