Hello Francois,

I know. But it's just as good, or better (smaller executable
size and smaller memory footprint) than Delphi 7. I really
like Delphi 5. And ICS works equally well on D5 as on any other
versions of Delphi. It's a pity to drop it.

Delphi 2005 is slow. It got much better after the 3 updates.
I'm not sure if 2006 justifies the upgrade cost, though.

Sounds fair for new features to go to new versions.
Will bug fixes be going into V5? Everyone on the list must have
a bunch of legacy projects running.

Most components tend to lag behind Delphi version upgrades.
ICS is fast in catching up (and is getting faster in dumping
earlier Delphi versions :)
