And this CodeDude has already recorded his session on Using Delphi (2006) to Extend Win32 Web Applications with AJAX, giving an introduction to what this AJAX "magic" is all about and how easy it is to extend WebBroker applications with AJAX by hand. I'm hoping to "see" you all online at CodeRage to participate!

2007 March - The Delphi Magazine #139

The Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 Redistributable Package, now available for download, installs the common language runtime and associated files required to run applications developed to target the .NET Framework 3.0. If you already have the .NET Framework 2.0 installed, this .NET Framework 3.0 redistributable package installs only the new Windows Vista components. This ensures that any .NET Framework 2.0-based applications still work when the .NET Framework 3.0 is installed, with no application migration or updates of any kind required.
The Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 is the new managed code programming model for Windows. It combines the power of the .NET Framework version 2.0 with new technologies: Windows Presentation Foundation, Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Workflow Foundation, and Windows CardSpace. The .NET Framework 3.0 is included as part of the Windows Vista operating system, and the redistributable package is for Windows XP and Windows Server 2003.

2006/10/30 - Delphi Survey
Nick Hodges has just announced a Delphi Survey for 2006. In 12 sections of in total about 60 questions (it feels like 100), we are asked all kinds of useful information on the version/edition of Delphi we use, as well as the technologies used (and wanted, like .NET 2.0, UNICODE for VCL, CF, Vista), application types we develop, and much more.
Please do yourself and other Delphi developers a favour and take the time to fill out this survey!

2006/10/02 - Borland Developer Studio Free Software Bundle

If you are a registered user of Borland Developer Studio 2006, you can download these tools now.

2006/09/25 - Turbo Delphi 2006 Professional Compiler Pack

2006/09/19 - (Turbo) Delphi Hotfix Roll-up

2006/09/04 - Turbo Delphi FAQ
The Turbo Editions FAQ with Frequently asked questions (and answers) for Turbo Delphi, Turbo Delphi for .NET, Turbo C++, and Turbo C# is now available.

2006/08/17 - Hydra 3.0 for Delphi
Get a first peek at what's cooking in the RemObjects' labs for the upcoming version 3.0 of the Hydra plugin framework for Delphi showing how to use Hydra 3.0 to use .NET plugins in Win32 host applications, allowing you to migrate or extend existing Win32 application to .NET gradually, or keep a mixed-mode application for as long as you want.

2006/08/08 - Turbo Delphi
DevCo is bringing back the Turbo Editions: Turbo Delphi for Win32, Turbo Delphi for .NET, Turbo C++ (Win32) and Turbo C# for .NET will be released on September 5th, 2006, both in a Free (Explorer) and affordable (less than US$ 500) Pro version. IMHO, this is a very good move, and will hopefully bring large numbers of new Delphi, C++ and C# developers to the DevCo community (and the TurboExplorer website).
Note that Turbo Delphi For Win32 and .NET include the VCL (for .NET) components, and Turbo Delphi for .NET even allows you to build ECO applications (as well as ASP.NET of course).
There appears to be one gotcha, however. According to Neil Rubenking, you can only install one Turbo edition on your machine at a time. If you want to use more than one "Turbo" version, then you probably will want to use Borland Developer Studio anyway (so for Delphi developers, you need to choose between Turbo Delphi for Win32 or Turbo Delphi for .NET I'm afraid).

2006/06/30 - BDS Technical Publications Survey
Borland Developer Studio technical publications team is asking for your feedback on the documentation for Borland Developer Studio 2006 in this survey.

2006/06/13 - BDS 2006 Hotfixes released
Borland has released hotfixes to address specific issues (in BDS 2006 Update #2), namely:

  1. This hotfix contains a fix for poppack.h. An invalid '#pragma option' was added to poppack.h which was causing alignment errors when building Windows applications.
  2. This hotfix updates the CaliberRM integration in BDS 2006 to work with CaliberRM Release 2 SP1. Do not apply this fix unless your CaliberRM server has been updated to that release.
  3. This hotfix contains a fix for customers who were unable to run the BDS2006 IDE after installing Update 2. For those customers, the IDE would start to load, and as soon as the splash screen was shown, it would disappear and the IDE would not run.
  4. This hotfix contains a fix for HTML Editor for international characters. In DBCS environment, such as Chinese, Japanese and Korean, international character in the HTML editor may become corrupted or lost.
  5. This hotfix addresses the delay when switching to the form designer view when the product is configured with a large number of component packages.
  6. This hotfix contains a fixes an issue where accented characters or far east characters in source code cause errors in C++ rename refactoring.
These hotfixes are also available from the Delphi Registered User Updates page.

2006/05/26 - Delphi SpeedUp 1.8
DelphiSpeedUp Delphi/BCB/BDS IDE plugin Version 1.8 is a plugin for Delphi/C++Builder 5/6/7/2005 and BDS 2006. It speeds up the time to load the IDE and it also improves the whole speed of the IDE. This is achieved by replacing some often used RTL functions by FastCode function that are optimized for the used CPU. It also adds some caches for function that work on filenames like ExpandFileName().

We'll design a model for Bob's Error Report Tool (BERT) in an ECO Package, make the model persistent, and create a simple WinForms GUI for it.
Next month, the ASP.NET Web version layer on top of the BERT ECO Package will be implemented and deployed.

And finally, notice the new debugging features that are available.

2005/05/17 - New Delphi Survey
Borland is offering us the chance to vote for what we think is important in the next version(s) of Delphi in a new Delphi Survey. This is your chance to have your say, so go for it!

2005/03/23 - Delphi and the .NET Compact Framework?
Several Borland Blog entries have been made by Danny, Allen and Danny again about Delphi and support for the .NET Compact Framework. What do we need? Only compiler support for the Compact Framework, or also a Visual Designer? And in case of a Visual Designer, do we want one based on WinForms or VCL for .NET?
Dr.Bob says... For me, the choice is clear: VCL is the way to go for GUI applications: VCL for Win, VCL for .NET and I'd be very pleased with a VCL for .NET/CF. With a little work you can produce almost single-source applications (with some IFDEFs) for Win32, Linux, .NET and in the future hopefully also Compact Framework...

2005/03/06 - C++ in Delphi IDE
The latest BDNtv episode shows work in progress on C++ database development support in the next Delphi IDE. Watch this BDNtv episode to see the latest developments on the C++ personality for the Delphi IDE

Danny Thorpe covers the reasons why there isn't a Delphi for .NET Compact Framework, yet.

2005/02/21 - C++Builder Survey
As you probably know, the next version of C++Builder will be integrated within the next major release of Delphi. Please use the new C++Builder Survey to provide Borland with feedback on what bugs you would like fixed and what new features you would like added.

2004/12/18 - BDNtv: C++Builder in Delphi
Borland has published a short but sweet BDNtv episode on C++Builder in Delphi, showing the designer, component palette, code editor and code insight, debugging, etc..

2004/12/14 - New Borland C++ Open Letter
Borland will continue to develop VCL-based C++. The next version of C++Builder will be part of the Delphi IDE family, enabling you to take advantage of the latest Delphi VCL and IDE framework and many of the new C++ features that you have requested. It is our intention to include this personality in or before the next major release of Delphi.
Dr.Bob says... Way to go, Borland! Thank you!!
