Just in case...RAD Studio 2007

Just in case you missed all the other CodeGear bloggers, the press release, and the article on the CodeGear Developer Network... I'll go ahead an mention it here; CodeGear has announced RAD Studio 2007. If you've been waiting for the next studio release to upgrade, now is the time to do it. This release will also include Update 3 for the previously released Delphi and C++Builder 2007. If you already have Studio Level Software Assurance, you'll be getting this release automatically. If you still haven't signed up for SA, now is the time to do it. By maintaining your annual SA account, you are assured that you'll have all the latest versions and features available.

While RAD Studio 2007 includes many updates for the Delphi and C++Builder 2007 personalities, the main addition is the Delphi for .NET personality. This includes the new language feature, parameterized types (generics). This allows you to both create and consume generic data types as supported by the latest .NET 2.0 framework. And updated version of VCL for .NET is included with all the same level of support for Windows Vista. You can also create ASP.NET web applications.

Ok.. the commercial is over... :-)
