Delphi 8 Question

Okay I have a question regarding the new Delphi 8 .Net..

Right now one of the things that I REALLY like about Delphi as a whole is the fact that you don't need any kind of runtime libraries in order to run the applications that are created with it.. Unlike .NET and Visual Basic..etc..

Is this changing with the new Delphi 8?   Will users be forced to have the .Net runtime architecture installed in order to run applications created in it?  OR can you create standalone applications AND .NET applications under the new D8?

This may very well be the determining factor for me as to whether or not I stay with Delphi..

Thoughts?

Thanks gang..

The current D8 release is .NET only (which is why it comes with D7). Borland intend to release an upfate to D7 (D7.1) but there are no plans for a Win32 D8 (ie: D8 is .NET only).

Borland intends to combine the Win32 and .NET IDEs into a single system for the D9 release.

Cheers,

Raymond.
