Extreme Delphi...

Call me crazy... but I suppose I'm just flirting with disaster...  So by paying homage to all the extreme sports out there, I've just uploaded a new patch.  I guess you can call it Extreme Delphi.  Just like extreme sports are not for the faint of heart, so too these patches should be approached the same way.  So if you've donned your knee and elbow pads and your helmet, you may proceed to the Extreme Delphi half-pipe and get the latest installment here.  This latest patch will hopefully cover some cases of random hangs and may also serve to reduce the occurance of the dreaded  “amount >= dest - startDest“ assertion.  This latest installment comes by way of Extreme Delphi team member, Adam “Sparky” Markowitz.  So in our quest to extinguish as many bugs and issues as we can out of the next Delphi release, code named, DeXter, Adam happened across this simple but effective fix.  So, I hope you are able to catch some big air with this patch...

  8. Thanks, Great - keep it up - all those minor patches from last week made a *** HUGE *** difference - took 2 days until it crashed! (Rather than minutes). Hope this one helps even more.

  9. Great news indeed....


    Will it be possible to also patch the Borland Delphi for .NET Provider dll (causing conflit with win32 projects)

  10. This is the best patch yet. Been running for 2 days without crashing or "hourglass" pausing. I used to crash at least once an hour, sometimes once every 30 minutes. This patch *finally* makes D2005 usable for me.

  11. It's nice with these patches. Thank you for you work with this.


    Only thing missing now is removing the incredibly annoying "design forms/datamodules pops in front of Tool Palette and Object Inspector whenever a hint is generated in these two". This problem makes it very hard to work in the non embedded designer (harder than D7). Working with the scrollbars in embedded mode is not an option, as it generates too mutch extra actions and is even worse.

  12. It may be possible that the memory leaks could be worse. After running for almost 4 hours got a Out of memory error. This is with just the plain Win32 personality configured. Otherwise much better.

  14. Borland should release a 500 mb "extreme patch" to renew Borland Delphi 2005. This product completely sucks. Slow, unstable, buggy (soooo buggy that just try setting autohide option for all toolbars and see the bugginess of the IDE itself) and sucks.


    Hell with Borland, hell with Microsoft. You all suck.

  15. I am afraid I did not find this site fast enough. I have become so utterly discouraged with using D2005 that I have opted to switch entirely to Java. NetBeans looks way cooler. Long live Open Source!
