Some newsworthy items

  • In case you've missed it, while at the SDN conference in the Netherlands, Nick Hodges has dropped some information about Delphi Prism, the next release of Delphi on the .NET platform hosted inside the Visual Studio Shell. Dr. Bob, Marco Cantu and Tim Anderson, have all commented on it. I guess this isn't an "official" announcement as that will happen later this month at the Microsoft PDC.
  • Speaking of the Microsoft PDC, I'll be there. If you're planning on going and would like to meet, let me know.
  • We've been reworking our beta-test process using a new solution from Centercode.
  • If you'd like to get in on the Delphi Prism fun and try out the new Centercode portal at the same time, you can apply to be a beta tester here.
  • The Scotts Valley High School Falcons, SCCAL co-champions, beat reigning CCS champion, the Santa Cruz High School Cardinals under the Friday night lights in both teams' league opener, October 3rd, 2008. Scotts Valley is now 1-0 in league play, 4-1 overall. Why does this matter? My son is a starting lineman for the Scotts Valley Falcons :-). Next Saturday, October 11th, Scotts Valley travels to Harbor High School to meet up with the Pirates on their home turf. Game at 2pm, PDT.


  1. since will be a plug-in into, can we have a new faster loading and performance delphi IDE that is totally free from .NET dependency?

  2. Yes, we can. It's called Delphi 2009 ;)

  3. I thought D2009 still needs .NET?
