EKON 9 - Keynote by DavidI

Well, now that Jason Vokes speaks about Delphi 2005, I'll blog the first information about DavidI's (Chief Cheerleader) keynote here at the EKON. He shortly talked about the developer point of view on ALM and SDO, we've all heard in the last months/years so much about.

In the second half he presented a roadmap of Delphi for the next two, three years. Interesting to see what will come. He talked about DeXter, the next version of Delphi, which brings back C++Builder to the Borland community.

He made sure that each of us understands that DeXter is about quality, that Borland has understood that last versions wheren't up to the standards we expect, that even Borland themselves expect. So I think that's a good start.

Productivity and Performance

Last, but not least, DavidI talked about the future of Delphi. He announced DeXter for the end of this year, including 64bit support for .NET, which is just a milestone to native 64 Bit! Highlander, for .NET 2.0 is coming along and will be available through different milestones in the middle of next year. Further, Borland is working on Delphi for Windows Vista and brings the VCL to Avalon and again in a time frame of 2 to 3 years, there is a good chance for Delphi and C++Builder 64 Bit native compilers!
