Upgrade now to take advantage of upgrade pricing and save 35%-45% off the new user pricing that you will have to pay if you upgrade in 2011 or later.

More Reasons why Now is the Best Time to Upgrade

  1. When you upgrade before Dec 31, you qualify for an additional free tool with the Buy One Tool, Get Another Tool Free offer
  2. Delphi, C++Builder and RAD Studio XE are a huge leap forward in features and functionality from your 2006 version with support for Windows 7, touch and ribbon interfaces, cloud computing, updated database drivers, Unicode and much more. See the new White Paper: Reasons to Migrate to Delphi XE – What you might have missed since Delphi 7 for all the details on new features in recent versions
