Hello Francois, > Delphi 5 is really too old.
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 too slow and too buggy compared to Delphi 2006 which seems so > far to be as good as Delphi 7 but has much more features. Delphi 2005 is slow. It got much better after the 3 updates. I'm not sure if 2006 justifies the upgrade cost, though. > V6 will completely replace V5. Last V5 version will be released very shortly > now.

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. > I even consider dropping Delphi 7 support for V7. I have to see how the > market will accept Delphi 2006. Most components tend to lag behind Delphi version upgrades. ICS is fast in catching up (and is getting faster in dumping earlier Delphi versions :) -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://www.elists.org/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
