All that is is a press release with absolutely no substance. One could claim similar gains if one sold 100 licenses last year and 208 this year. It also talks about their entire development range that includes a C++ compiler, PHP integrated dev and DotNet version of Delphi called Prism. Pure Delphi is a subset of what they declared. As its a press release it's about as accurate as Bill Clinton's denial of sexual relations with Lewinski, or OJ Simpsons entire court case back in the 90's.

Edit: also worth noting, their "Mac" and iOS support comes from them reusing the FreePascal compiler. So, really, Embarcadero is a lot of smoke and Mirrors. They bought in the .Net support from RemObjects (and that compiler had pretty shocking code generation last time I tried it, admittedly back in the first release), the borrowed support for Mac from the FreePascal community and they created yet another framework to support cross platform development. "Yay!?"
