To celebrate another year of success for Delphi. I dug a bit in my archive. Here are a few old images, mostly ads from Borland, before and after the product release.
It is interesting to notice how the original business value (increased productivity for developers) is still true today with a totally changed landscape, mobile, and all. We could re-use some of the original ads, as they make sense today. The other things I noticed is that most of the other tools that were popular back than, have long been forgotten. Delphi, on the other hand, is still popular.
LibreOffice 5.3 is coming soon – it’s due to be released in early February. What have the developers been working on?
Find out in new contributor interview, with Tamás Bunth:
New 22.214.171.124 version of ADO.NET provider for Firebird is ready for download. As you can see the major version number changed.
This release contains two new big features, both focused on Firebird 3. The
BOOLEAN datatype is now supported (except Entity Framework mapping, currently). And SRP authentication is supported on Firebird 3. I think these are the most fundamental new features so I’m releasing it now. There’s more to come.
