jkaster: VCL products for Developer Express

jkaster: fabio_so: "Why CodeRush does not support Delphi 2006?" - julian: Mark Miller made a deal with Ray Navasarkian to produce CodeRush for Visual Studio. After Delphi 7, the IDE changed a fair bit and CodeRush has been stuck at support for that version.

jkaster: pachecoes: "support for VCL.NET? I love the Quantum grid VCL.Net" - nick: it's really incumbent upon us to make it worth your while. julian: we would rather target ALL .NET customers rather than just VCL.NET customers. For Win32, we definitely believe Delphi is the tool to use.

davidi: fabio_so: "Why the Winforms products does not full support Delphi 2006?" - some of the issues with WinForms support have to do with the designers that only work with Visual Studio and not the Delphi IDE

jkaster: nwoolls: "any details about the upcoming vcl skinning? which of their components will support skinning?" - julian: it's scheduled for after our ribbon control. Probably mid year. But, being Developer Express, we don't actually give dates. (laughs)

jkaster: DaveN: "how many people listen to the Delphi hour live, and how many download replays?" - it varies, usually between 20 to 30

jkaster: efortier: "Any chance that the Extract Method refactoring might one day keep the formatting of the code it extracts? I hate loosing blank lines, spaces and such, it makes my extracted code less readable most of the time." - nick: please put in the feature request in QC. Work is being done on that area right now.

jkaster: pachecoes: "Improvements on DataSnap and webtechnologies? are we including Intraweb on Highlander?" - yes, we are improving these areas. IntraWeb is moving forward and so are we!

davidi: chewy: "Can I enter in the contest and win prizes? ;)" - sorry - but we will love you forever
