Delphi 5.. Good, Bad... Ugly?

Howdy all..  I would like to know what you all think of Delphi 5.  I am in the market for it but not sure if it is worth the upgrade.   I have a copy of Delphi 4 and I like it a lot.  Is the upgrade to the Professional version of Delphi 5 really worth it?  What features does it have that I don't have with 4?  (Forgive I have done zero research on this so far, thought I would give everyone a chance to voice their opinions..)  Thanks everyone..


ps.  I am downloading the Trail Version now to check it out, but I still want your input.

Edited text of question.
If you are programming for a living then you'll love the better debugging support.

There are lots of bug fixes but not much enhancements. Frames are new and the ADO support.

If you can afford it, buy it :-)

Ciao, Mike
I upgraded from Delphi 3 and I found Delphi 5 very much more stable and I love those new features. Anyway, maybe some of those features that I love was already in Delphi 4.

IMHO, those who are still using Delphi 3 should get the upgrade. However, please do upgrade your computer as well because it is more resource (memory, cpu) hungry.
