This hotfix contains a fix for Delphi for .NET assemblies that are strong named.
In Delphi 2006, Delphi package assemblies use the wrong public key for a required
Delphi package assembly causing mismatch errors at runtime.

With Hotfix 7, the Delphi relocatible .dcu* and .dcp* formats remain compatible
with the original shipping version of Delphi 2006. Consequently, the version
number of the compiler is not changing.  Specifically, the value of the
CompilerVersion constant will remain 18.0000 and the old-style conditional
define VER180 will remain available unchanged.

The corrected Delphi compiler files will have an August 2006 date stamp.
