Experts,

I'm fairly new to Delphi, but I'm enjoying it more and more each day. Yesterday I came across Orpheus (sourceforge.net) and it has simplified my life a lot. Are there any other packages out there that I "need" to have? I don't mind paying a little bit for them (say up to USD100), but they need to have royalty-free distribution. A good DBGrid implementation would be nice...

BTW, I'm using Delphi 7 if it matters...

BRgds,
Marius

TurboPower Async Pro (http://sourceforge.net/projects/tpapro) if you want to access your RS232.

The Jedi VCL (http://sourceforge.net/projects/jvcl), but i am biased because i am a JVCL developer.

http://www.dow.wau.nl/aew/DelForExp.html = Delphi Formatting Expert, useful to keep your source readable.
http://www.gexperts.org/ = GExperts, A nice collection of Delphi IDE experts.
http://delphi.icm.edu.pl/ = Delphi Super Page, A huge collection of free and commercial Delphi components.

The Delphi Super Page is a good place to start looking for other components, free and commercial. The other links are more useful for the Delphi IDE.

http://www.delphizine.com/ = Delphi Informant Magazine, A nice online magazine that also publishes a paper print version. Quite interesting for Delphi developers but unfortunately it isn't free.
An interesting magazine, available world-wide and perhaps the only Delphi-only magazine.

Internet connectivity suite - overbyte.DelphiCenter.com - only the fastest and most reliable internet connectivity piece in the windows world.

DUnit unit testing framework - http://sourceforge.net/projects/dunit/ - makes writing test scripts fun and makes full regression testing possible with every build.

Christmas comes early this year and I'm increasing the point to 60... And then I'll split it three ways between you.

Cheers,
