Turbo Editions of Delphi, C++ and C# in Q3

Author: Bob Swart
Posted: 8/8/2006 9:32:08 AM (GMT+1)

Tuesday September 5th 2006 is the date which will bring back the Turbo versions to us. Turbo Delphi for Win32, Turbo Delphi for .NET, Turbo C++ and Turbo C# for .NET will then be released, 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 and Turbo C++ include the VCL 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).



marc06/08/09 08:14:10of je hebt een paar virtual machines draaiende niet?
Bob Swart06/08/09 11:33:49Ja, zowel met VirtualPC als VMWare kan dat ook natuurlijk (moet je ook de extra Windows licenties hebben, maar dat kan met MSDN bijvoorbeeld).
Attila Perger06/08/09 15:44:04What is the difference between Delphi 200x for Win32 and Turbo Delphi for Win32 AND what is the difference between Delphi 200x for .NET and Turbo Delphi for .NET?
Attila Perger06/08/09 15:45:06Can I use my old code and third party components(Win32/VCL)?
Bob Swart06/08/10 08:55:56Delphi 2006 for Win32 is the same as Turbo Delphi for Win32, with the exception that Delphi 2006 for Win32 also includes the Delphi for .NET, C++ and C# personalilties (while Turbo Delphi for Win32 is only the Delphi for .NET personality). Same thing with Turbo Delphi for .NET. The Turbo products only contain one personality, while the BDS 2006 products contain them all.
Bob Swart06/08/10 08:57:47Since each Turbo product is the equivalent of a single personality from the BDS 2006 product, you can use all your "old" code (as long as it also runs in the BDS 2006 product of course). Note that where third-party components are concerned: the Turbo Pro versions will give you no problem, but the free Turbo Explorer versions will have a "fixed" component palette, which does NOT allow the installation of additional components. So for the free versions, the answer will be no...
Elizeu06/08/10 17:32:04Is impossible to use delphi without 3rd party components
Bob Swart06/08/10 20:03:54Then you just have to purchase the Turbo Delphi "Professional" edition (which will have no limit to install third-party components). Only the free Turbo Delphi Explorer has the "frozen" component palette...
Niklas06/08/24 19:46:12Is Indy regarded as a 3rd party component?
Bob Swart06/08/26 08:34:46Yes, I would expect Indy, IntraWeb and even TeeChart, InterBase Express, and the Reporting stuff to be regarded as third-party components which will be not available to use by the IDE at design-time in the Turbo Explorer editions. Of course, it's still possible to create and use them at run-time in the Turbo Explorer editions, just as any other third-party component...
MaxL06/09/06 09:20:01This is good news indeed. It would be great news if borland just allowed creating and installing third-party component and dropped refactorings instead in its free edition. Don't get me wrong, refactoring tools are great, I develop in C# and these tools helped me _a lot_ reorganise some "spaghetti-code" I inherited from a former co-worker. Moreover, from an educational POV I reckon that refactoring tools help a lot when developing code. Yet, I can't help thinking how sad it will be not using the awesome JEDI library.
RFR06/09/14 10:22:55I installed Turbo Delphi Explorer. Setup ask for Indy 9 or 10, but I can't see Indy in the tool palette. Where is it? Where can I create a new DataModule form?
Bob Swart06/09/14 11:39:13Indy is considered a third-party control, and unfortunately not available at design-time in the Explorer editions of Turbo Delphi. The fact that the installer asks you if you want Indy 9 or 10 is because the Indy units are installed on disk since you can still use them at run-time...

Saleem06/09/19 16:40:37Refering to your 06/08/26 post, can you demonstrate using jedi in turbo delphi
Mahesh 08/12/09 09:48:53can i use my source code(delphi 7.0) and third party components (delphi 7.0) in delphi 9.0. and how to register the third party component in delphi 9.0
