Danny outlines reason for .NET 1.1 SP1 & D8 breakage

Danny has posted some information on our analysis of the problems that folks are having with the .NET 1.1 SP1 update that was just released a few weeks ago.  Now before you get your knickers in knot, we will at least release an interim patch to get folks back on track.  However it will take some time for us to fully regress any changes before releasing an “official” update.  The problem is, as Danny stated, we simply don't know at this point what the correct fix should be.  The worst thing we could do at this point is to bow to all that borland.public.delphi.non-technical pressure and rush a fix out the door.  We need to step back, take a deep breath, and attack the problem calmly.  We certainly don't want to make the situation worse.  I recommend to all those folks that seem to be using this as an excuse to break out the flame-throwers, to take that same tactic.  Slow down and take a deep breath.  There is truth in the old adage, “haste makes waste.”
