Suggestions please. Upgrade Delphi?
Posted on 2005-03-13
I've used Delphi since v1, currently using version 5. I'm interested only in local client development at this time as all my applications are that way, although maybe sometime in the future I will get more interest in more web related stuff, currently its local only that interests me.
I'm just wondering from the experts is if there is any major enhancements to upgrade to the latest version? (and is Delphi 2005 the latest? It shows on their site but I know a few months ago I was confused on why they listed Delphi 8 and 2005 differently, and what the differences were). I guess I would be interested if they made enhancements to their vcl components, like today I have problems with the Tmedia player, it doesn't play some videos, I believe it still uses the old Windows player. I don't see anywhere that really clarifies if the D2005 components have been upgraded in any way as those are things that would interest me even more. I don't think I would gain much just having the same components I have now, other then improvements to the development environment itself that they have added.
Thanks for your feedback.
