Built in profiler and profiling and resource debugger
Include an out of the box profiler with resource and memory debugging.
Nexus: Quality Suite breaks for me on really large projects. I do believe this particular type of tools are best delivered by the compiler/linker vendor - Embarcadero. I like the concept of Quality Suite but not its speed of execution.
Good to know about the Nexus Quality Suite, but I'd still like to see a full integrated debugger with line profiling be part of Delphi, even if we had to pay Embarcadero an additional fee to turn it on. I'd sooner be held hostage by Embarcadero than by a third party who wants to charge me as much as a Delphi upgrade just for the line-by-line profiling.
There's a new profiler in town; Nexus Quality Suite has both Line and Method level profilers, as well as a test coverage analyzer. The product is actually an updated version of the TurboPower Sleuth QA product, and currently retails for only $300 on sale.
If it were the same as the full version of AQTime, then I'd say yes. But it is a cutdown version, and the one feature I really need (line-by-line profiling) is not included. So despite it's inclusion, I'll still have to purchase AQTime at its > $500 price. :-(
How about a discount down to say $100 for the upgrade to the full version???
Shouldn't this be closed as completed, as AQTime is already in DXE?
Yes, I would really like that! Because I've made a profiler myself (http://code.google.com/p/asmprofiler/) I needed to make runtime detouring, stack processing, etc which adds quite some overhead...
It would be very nice if the compiler can generate all the "start" and "end" functions, so it minimizes the overhead (no need to worry about saving CPU registers and restoring it after processing etc).
If they can make a general profiler interface, any third party can implement the "start" and "end" functions
It would be nicer if AQTime didn't cost more than a Delphi upgrade did. Add a profiler into Delphi and I'd gladly pay $200 more for each upgrade.
It would be nice if Delphi would provide an interface for the AQTime integration which doesn't break with every new Delphi release.

Why not bundle Automated QA's in the Enterprise or Architect edition?
