Some comments on this thread (all IMHO of course)
- FPC is missing. Which is not bad, since till now there were only a few
detail mods necessary at best.
- While FPC supports D7 and even D2005/2006 features, the .NET stuff
is missing entirely, including dotted unit names, and this will remain so
in the near future. This means that FPC can't lift along with the Delphi7
support. (if that uses dotted unit names etc)
- Note btw that on the Indy lists, a recent discussion on the Indy list
shed some doubts about Delphi.NET products, since a C# port of Indy wanted
to branch, and that took most of the active people with it, leaving
Delphi.NET in the cold. Since most .NETers seem to prefer C# (and VS)
- I agree with that assesment. Regardless what you think about .NET, I see no
future for a long term combined source between native and .NET. It's a bit
of the worst of two worlds solution. Here at work we have at the moment a
policy of setting up new projects in .NET (VS.NET tho), while the old
Delphi products keep being maintained in D6. I think that is sane, and
more productive in the long run.
