I disagree. Given that ICS is essentially undocumented, if people have to go searching through dozens of demo applications to find the compression code, they simply won't do it. ICS is supposed to be high level components that include such functionality. Since Zlib is part of the VCL in Delphi 7 and later, and 2006 has the latest version, it makes sense to simply use the VCL, in exactly the same way as we use the VCL for numerous other things. Assuming it's implements the features we need. If some developers are not satisfied with the VCL ZLIB, they can override the components and include whatever code they want. I'm not sure of the ZLIB state in Delphi 6 and earlier, I think it needed to be installed separately, but since I seem to be only one here that using anything older than Delphi 7 (which I'm now migrating away from), it probably does not matter.
