I only have a single development environment, and I need to be able to produce bug fix versions of several applications at short notice, often hours, that get widely distributed within hours. Many other professional developers are probably in exactly the same situation. So using new versions of components is very delicate, thus the absolute need for backward compatibly and full version and change documentation, to allow the risk of new versions to be accessed. I do keep up to date with official ICS betas, including SSL, test them for weeks or months in various live applications, report problems, and often try to fix them myself, for the benefit of other uses, but only if I can see the risk of doing so and I can be sure the changes will not cause me major grief. > We are not speaking specific on gzip but on handlig encoding in a > generic way.

Vclzip is commercial, I used it to replace the previous Borland Zlib implementation because it was convenient, but I'd rather use open source for anything new. I will test your changed component in one of my applications provided, provided there is no DLL requirement. I'm also going to try to add ZLIB compression to the FTP client and server, at the same time as adding 64-bit stream support and removing support for long obsolete compilers.
