I love how Fire is starting to come together. Made up of ~80% RemObjects C# code, now.

Really!? Would it be relevant for a Delphi component writer to post about his tools in a C# forum?

Fire is written in 100% Elements code, most of it C# (for a few reasons. For one, I needed a good real live dog fooding project for the C# compiler! for another, C# was easier to write back when IDE support for stuff such as Class Completion wasn't ready yet). The core app is all native Cocoa.

Internally, the app hosts the compiler and other "IDE smarts" infrastructure that's written in .NET and shared with Visual Studio. Most of the codebase is written in Oxygene, and we host it via a glue layer called Marzipan (we've open sourced that and it's on github) to make it easy and fast for the Cocoa code to interact with the managed code.

Hi everyone. Over the past weekend, we shipped major new beta builds for, well, just about every single one of our products. On the Elements front (Oxygene and RemObjects C#) we've also shipped the first beta for the May 2014 update, which will be a minor bug-fix update, but has a lot of ...

We intend to ship DA8 in May. That said, the beta should be fairly stable and usable as it is, even now.

New blog post on Subspace Cables: "Party like it's 1999".
This is a (mostly literally transcribed) Facebook chat i just had, representative of the same question(s) i get again and again and again: Customer: what made you switch to .net or what made you prefer .net over Delphi? me: oh, where to start? ;) Frankly, after working in .NET for even the shortest while, Delphi feels like the middle ages. The class library is 1000 times more capable, and intuitive and well-structured. Not to men...

+Joseph Mitzen​ This year old post was not about the quality or feature set of a product, but about the relevance of product Y in the context of a product X community. Would you discuss the features of your Mazda in a Ford community? Your iPhone in an Android community? Your religion in an atheist community?
