New Diamondback preview license posted

Michael Swindell just posted to BDN, this article regarding the NDA license that was shipped with the BorCon preview.  So for all you folks out there remaining tight-lipped about the content of your copy of the Diamondback preview, the floodgates are now open.  Sorry for the confusion, folks.  You can now post blog entries, articles, newsgroup messages, screenshots, whatever.  The preview was a whirl-wind last minute thing, so there was bound to be a few mistakes.  Just remember that this is a pre-release copy of Diamongback, so expect things to change considerably between the preview and the final public release.




  1. I was wondering whether there was a way to get a hold of this Diamondback preview (or any other beta in the future) for all those who couldn't attend BorCon (like myself :)

  2. That would be really nice! Can't wait to see DiamondBack for real.

    Hi, Allen, When will Borland release the new Delphi???

    What are the possiblity of Borland doing a Public Beta of Diamondback just like Microsoft releases Visual Studio previews. This would give the everyday user that is not in the Borland "Circle of the Know" a chance to use it and provide feedback in the way of bugs and features.

    Seriously, letting the average Delphi user preview the next version of Delphi would be invaluable in bug finding. Maybe bugs like the "array of array" problem could be found before product release (And if this bug is still not known I would happily provide and example using standard .NET objects).

    I implore Borland to give the idea of a public preview a serious thought.

  5. If there are problems in the current release of Delphi, you can report them in Quality Central.

    This is the best way to provide feedback on bugs to Borland.
