Given Embarcadero's total distain for "the little folk", I hope ICS will continue to leave versions of the ICS which are compatible with Delphi 4 and Delphi 7 on the ICS website, for those of us still doing productive work on the "early" Delphis which can... shock horror!... still be installed on systems simply by entering a registration key, rather than via an online registration process which leaves the package owner vulnerable to the marketing choices of the software producer.
As Kylix seems "dead", I hope Lazarus is thriving, and that a version of ICS which works with that is/ will remain available... but will understand that if Lazarus is NOT doing well, the energy to support it cannot be justified.
